As one of more than 300,000 women in the United States who will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year, I am blessed to have health insurance, a loving family, and the support of friends, co-workers and the community.
Not all women battling breast cancer in the El Paso area have that.
I created the Stand With Estela Fund in the El Paso Community Foundation to help other women going through this journey.
The Stand With Estela Fund will provide financial support for a variety of things, like transportation to and from their chemotherapy, wigs, compression sleeves, maybe even flowers or a prayer blanket.
Donors may also target their funds for research.
I am with you.
We stand together.
Financial Assistance from the Rio Grande Cancer Foundation
The Stand With Estela Fund recently gave a major grant to the Rio Grande Cancer Foundation to provide financial assistance for women fighting breast cancer. The assistance will be awarded as $250 gift cards for needs such as transportation, medical deductibles, wigs, compression sleeves and gloves, and more.
