Hilda looked radiant the day she shared her cancer story on stage with over 300 people at our 2017 Conference, with her darling five year old daughter at her side. She talked about the extraordinary help that Olga provided to her family as they struggled with medical appointments, doctors that did not understand her culture, lack of money and being undocumented. Olga helped with all of those things. But what she really provided was HOPE to the whole family and the ability to face the struggles and the inevitable outcome of her cancer!
Olga met Hilda in 2013. She had stage 4 cancer and was given just a few months to live. With hope, Hilda survived four years, until November of 2017. Hilda is gone… She leaves behind three beautiful children, ages 5, 13 and 16 years old, and a grieving husband. But even now, Olga is able to help the family through this last transition of the funeral and moving forward through this very difficult time. Hilda is just one of many families that our navigators work with every day! Please make a generous donation to support these families! Your gift truly makes a difference in their lives.
Happy Holidays to you and those you care for!
