A NOTE FROM BETTYE

To all the ladies out there...

 Please remember October is a month dedicated to “breast cancer awareness”  and all things PINK.

What breast cancer awareness mean? For some it is a reminder to get your annual mammogram. 

For others, October is a painful reminder of their breast cancer experience, and the tens of thousands of lives lost annually to this disease. However for us at AROC, October for us along with our partners and those who will host a fundraiser to support our efforts and raise money for our “essential” mission. Please know without your contributions/support from AROC “365 PINK FUNDS”, many individuals in active treatment for breast cancer are at risk for a sudden hard financial losses. In other words, they are at-risk to not show up for chemo infusion or radiation, or they do not fill prescriptions.  

Treatment patient is overwhelmed and can lead to earlier mortality, an outcome that is unacceptable. When lost income come into conflict or opposition with the cost of health insurance premiums, high deductibles, and co-pays, patients and their families are at risk for suffering financial losses.

The threat of vehicle repossession, utility shutoffs, foreclosure, or eviction, can result in patients making decisions to stop treatment and return to work. Many women will have the honor of sharing that these are choices they feel compelled to make, until they learn about AROC “365 PINK FUNDS”. 

If you would like to share your story/ your journey send it to is at: [email protected] today.

For women with HER2+or HER2- or metastatic disease awaiting a social security disability decision or Social Security Disability Income payments to begin, AROC 365 PINK FUNDS can provide them with up to six months of financial assistance.

HUNGER AWARENESS

Do you know that even in the wealthiest communities, there are people who need help with access to healthy food. 

The essence of Thanksgiving is the presence of family and friends coming together for a time-honored tradition of joyful celebration with the deliberate practice of gratitude as the central focus. The ritual is there to remind us to be grateful that we are alive and have food on our table, since not everyone on our communities is so lucky.
