Richie - Pink Fund recipientThank you so much for this wonderful news!

Receiving financial support has given me one less thing to worry about. I had my chemotherapy treatment today and was feeling a little beat down. I lost all my hair yesterday and I was thinking I wasn’t going to get any help. So this was another answered prayer for my kids and me.

My biggest financial fear was possibly ending up homeless with no place to go. Growing up in foster care and not having family has always been a huge fear of mine. Thank you Pink Fund for all you have done for me.

My heaviest burden that’s been lifted is two less bills to worry about this month and being able to focus more on my recovery. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
As a cancer patient and a single mom I feel pressure to maintain a positive attitude especially for my kids which can be especially difficult when I’m scared, anxious or not feeling well.

I have attached a few pictures of myself, one is the day I was diagnosed, and one of me with no hair, and one of my precious kids.
