Messages from those we’ve helped:
OMG, thanks so much for the support
I’m gleaming from ear to ear and crying at the same time.
It’s such a relief that my children are going to keep up with what they love and knowing the support they have means the world to me.
I will take care of what Lisa needs and get it out to her for the activities she needs now and whatever comes up for the gym and basketball and the YMCA.
Sincerely thank you Patty!
This journey has been tough however I have been extremely blessed. In one of the most challenging times in my life dealing with stage 4 Cancer I am introduced to Mary O is what they call her. She came at such a appropriate time to assist me in anyway she could as I
received chemo treatments. Well, she connected me with the Sean Strong foundation and I was approved for assistance with childcare/camp fees for this 2018 summer. They covered all of my expenses which included camp shirts, trips, lunch, and snacks. It was a blessing and my children had an amazing summer. I want to thank Mary Oleksiak and the Sean Strong Foundation for their assistance and support. It means everything when you have a village behind you. I will never forget your kind charity, support and love as I heal.
Thanks from me, Kris and Nylah.
If it was not for the SEANstrong foundation, this patient may not have been able to complete her treatment course as recommended by her providers. The assistance your organization provided to arrange for childcare services gave her a chance to breathe knowing that she had a comfortable plan for her child on the days she needed supervision so that she could focus on getting through her cancer treatment. The patient successfully completed her treatment without missing a single day and we cannot thank you enough for the support you offered this patient and her family. This organization and the assistance you provide is life-saving, to say the least.
Hello from the Sarcich family, a family that the Sean F. Hogan, Sr. Foundation helped at time when we were at our most fragile and in the most need. I had been diagnosed with breast cancer in August 2016. I didn’t know how we would handle the medical bills alone but add to that the need for care for our then third grader Anna, something I was responsible for. SeanStrong stepped to our side and helped us with a grant that just meant the world to us. It gave us breathing room. It gave us strength. To have someone come to our aid as you did was like having a friend walk with us on this unbelievably challenging journey.And honestly, the anxiety I was dealing with was monstrous and all centered around our daughter. How would we get her through this? Your grant helped to calm some of that anxiety for me and made it more manageable.Today, I am NED and doing well. Still dealing with post cancer
anxiety. It is a process but I’m working on it. And Anna is doing fabulous as a fourth grader who can’t wait for summer vacation — all normal childhood things. I love being able to write that. 🙂
Thank you so much for all that you do. Not just for us. For the community. The need is real. And you make such a difference.
