Our amazing friends share inspirational words.
“Being diagnosed with breast cancer completely blindsided me. The stress of having cancer is more than enough to deal with. And then the financial impact creeps in. Tough Enough to Wear Pink contributing toward my out of pocket expenses took an enormous amount of stress off of me. I can’t imagine what my cancer experience would have been without the community support of Tough Enough to Wear Pink.”

“Cancer was one of the worst things that has ever happened to me. But honestly, I could not have been in a better place than Gunnison. I could not have asked for a better support network. For better doctors. For a better program than TETWP. I am currently finishing up treatment but the worst is over. This has changed me, my perspective. But for the better. I appreciate everything so much more than I had ever imagined precancer. I know I survived this horrible thing and have so much to live for. And I know a lot of that is thanks to TETWP. They changed this whole process for me. Made it doable. TETWP was in my corner for the fight of my life. Making sure I was taken care of and not giving up. They made me realize it was ok to pause some of my life to fight. To win. That I wasn’t being lazy or a charity case. But that I was getting the help that I needed to beat this. And I did win.” Read Meagan’s story…

“I can honestly say that this has been the hardest thing I’ve had to endure. However, I knew I wasn’t alone in this process. TETWP came to my rescue, I had the honor of meeting Heidi and Cjay who showed up at my job and told me they would help me financially. Tears drop down my eyes as we sat there and talked, I was blessed to have met these wonderful human beings who didn’t even know me and were willing to help me out. This organization offers a lot to this community, and honestly without TETWP Gunnison patients would have to travel even more.” Read Adriana’s story…
