Meet Tracy: Mother, patient, advocate and BLESSED!

When I was diagnosed with Stage II breast cancer in 2004, I was already facing some challenges: I was a single mom working as a substitute teacher. I couldn’t work full-time because I was responsible for taking my two children—who were 11 and 9 at the time—to school and the ride was one hour each way. So when I received my diagnosis, I thought, “And this, too?” I was shocked. Of course, my first concern was for my children. I knew I needed help, so I turned to my friends; one of them took me under her wing and introduced me to HOA. Here, cancer wears a face, and not a number.

Meet Anthony. Grandfather, crossing guard, survivor.

My favorite thing in the world are my grandchildren. When I found out I had lung cancer, my first thought was “how long do I have.” I felt for sure that I wouldn’t be around to watch my grandchildren grow up. There were many things big and small that I questioned, including who would take over for me as the crossing guard at their school. The folks at HOA made me see things differently. Their expertise gave me confidence that I would survive.

Meet Susan. Friend, yoga beginner, survivor.

I was terrified when I found out I had cancer, but also knew I was going to fight with everything I had. With the doctors and nurse at HOA by my side, I never gave up hope. Going through chemotherapy is never fun, but I actually found myself looking forward to my visits because of the love and motivation I received from the staff. Everyone from the receptionists to the nurses and doctors were so kind and uplifting. They made me feel like family.
