Whole Person Cancer Care Erin

“Cancer is overwhelming – financially and logistically,” Erin, a patient at the Diana J. White Cancer Institute, says. “My husband and I didn’t know how we were going to do it.”

Erin, who lives nearly an hour from Sonora in Dorrington, was diagnosed with anal squamous cell carcinoma and would require nearly two months of daily radiation therapy and chemotherapy.

“We had never thought of moving,” Erin recalls. Susan, a social worker at the Cancer Institute, suggested using the Cancer Patient Support Fund to help Erin pay for short-term housing at Quail Hollow, less than five minutes away. “This was a huge blessing and a quick solution,” Erin says.

“I just want to say thank you for the ongoing support I’ve received from day one at the Cancer Institute.”

Your gifts to the Cancer Patient Support Fund help support patients like Erin right here in our community, and inspire hope for their families.
