Review for A Shelter for Cancer Families (ASCF), Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I lived through the event most of us fear....hearing that diagnosis "you have cancer". After fighting that battle and being told i was cancer free I was blindsided to hear it a second time....eight years later! So many thoughts ran through my mind. I knew that this time if i was going to beat this i had to travel to Houston where the best treatments were available but being concerned with the financial ramifications i almost didn't do it! It was not until my son begged me "do all that you can to stay here with us, mom".....that i started looking for a way to gain access to the care here in Houston. Then, true divine intervention came in the form of "A Shelter for Cancer Families (ASCF)" They literally saved my life by allowing me to have a place to stay near the treatments i so, desperately needed! If it weren't for their generosity in providing a place to stay i would not have access to the life saving care. Not only that, my adult sons took turns coming to visit. They provided a way for my family to be together (which was healing in its own way). The vision, the mission and the service provided by these loving people is like nothing I've seen before. Thank you ASCF for saving my life....for providing the gift of time with my family and for all of the love!!! --Leese (from Honolulu, HI)
