The Women That We Help

Highlighting 3 Recipients

As a supporter of the mission of the I.W.I.N. Foundation we feel it is important to share with you real stories of how your donations have made a difference in our recipients' lives to lift emotional, physical and financial burdens while they battle breast cancer.

 

Crystal

Crystal, a 32 year old married mother of two school aged children was metastatic at her diagnosis at age 31. Her husband is out of work (unemployed), and they do not have insurance. I.W.I.N. is helping Crystal with gasoline to get to and from her frequent treatments and groceries to help feed her family.

 Leanne

Leanne, a 56 year old married mother of a full-time college student had to take unpaid leave from her job while undergoing treatment. The treatment has included a double mastectomy, chemothereapy, and radiation. Leanne's husband is 65 years old and retired, so they are now on a fixed income. I.W.I.N. has helped Leanne with groceries and gasoline to get to and from treatment, along with a therapeutic massage to help her body heal.

Debra

Debra, a 59 year old widow is battling breast cancer for the third time. She was first diagnosed in2006 and has been in treatment on and off since. Debra has no current job and very limited income. She travels 200 miles round trip to the hospital where she had her mastectomy. I.W.I.N. is helping Debra with housekeeping, gasoline and groceries.
