Review for Support Connection Inc, Yorktown Heights, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When I was 48 years old(5 years ago) I was diagnosed with Stage IV Ovarian Cancer. There was no history of cancer in my family? How am I going to show my 2 children, Jake and Maggie, ages 13 and 15 that mom is going to be just fine?! I have been walking for Support Connection for about 17 years now just because. Now it was going to be my turn to talk to one of the counselors at Support Connection. I decided to just walk in and Andrea, one of the counselors, (All the counselors have had either Ovarian or Breast Cancer themselves.) sat down with me for three hours and just listened and answered my questions. She made me feel like I was not alone and that only a Higher Being can determine your destiny. She also helped me to help my children. My son, Jake, decided to go to see Andrea and he also talked about his concerns. He came home from that visit with a smile on his face. Four years later he was asked to speak in a Support Connection video and his portion was about how the counselors can help teenagers just like they helped him. This is a non profit organization and they just get monies from ordinary people. We have been doing the Walk now for 17 years and have donated funds for the Support Connection. This group is amazing because they help the entire family. I am in remission now and I have two very happy and healthy children, 18 and 20. Thank you Support Connection. Susan McCarthy
