“Billy”, Age 15, South Carolina
January 2013—Fifteen year old “Billy” was diagnosed with a rare cancer of the soft tissue, in the Fall of 2011. Billy’s parents managed to maintain their full-time jobs for close to a year in spite of a rigorous treatment schedule. However, eventually the stress of managing her son’s care and her job responsibilities became too great and Billy’s mom had to quit her job. The family soon fell behind on their bills and assistance from Family Reach was requested.
Family Reach provided a $1,362.44 grant to cover their auto loan, phone and internet.
