A Breast Cancer Diagnosis is so overwhelming


“When you are faced with a Breast Cancer Diagnosis, everything is so overwhelming. I still remember the moment not long after my first diagnosis six years ago, when Jan Fritz gave me a check from Bust of Steamboat funds to help with all the extra expenses that were adding up quickly. That moment of support made me feel less alone – there were people in our community helping me with my journey even if I did not know their names. The support continued while I was being vigilant and after a reoccurrence, it filled many of the gaps that insurance leaves behind. There are so many things like travel, expensive scans, and wigs that BC Warriors have to navigate. Having the help of the Bust of Steamboat has lifted our family up and allowed me to make choices to feel human through a difficult battle.”
