Since 2009, the Helene Foundation has assisted 155 North Carolina families and has touched the lives of 300 children. Of those, the Helene Foundation is actively assisting 16 families and 31 children. We are proud to be providing services that help brave mothers maintain normalcy in their homes while they fight cancer.
Mothers whose families have received assistance from the Helene Foundation, 2009 - present:
"You all are amazing! Being diagnosed with brain cancer was devastating news. My heart sank and I was so ill. You all were a bright spot, sending help and encouragement. I am mother of five children ages three to sixteen. God sends us hope and encouragement in many ways and you all were one of mine. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the food and gas cards."
"Thank you so much for helping me during this time of dealing with cancer. You helped my family so much by providing a cleaning service every other week for six months, as well as prepaid gas cards to get us to to treatments. It meant so much to me. I know many other women must benefit greatly as well. Thank you for all the wonderful work you do."
"I wanted to let you know how much we appreciate the Helene Foundation’s help. The cancer journey has been long and arduous for myself and the family. To be able to help the families directly is priceless! I want everyone at the foundation to know that your generosity and outreach have been quite moving for us and will never be forgotten. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts."
"I am so eternally grateful for this foundation and your support this year. Because of your help with daycare, I was able to recover from my mastectomy. If it had not been for your financial support for these services, I have no idea how we would have made it through. I am so very grateful and appreciate y’all so much."
"I just wanted to thank the Helene Foundation for all that was done on my behalf. The food was wonderful and just what my family needed. On June 6, 2013, my daughter graduated from high school wearing a dress that was purchased at JCPenney, thanks to your assistance. Again, thank you, the services are fantastic."
"You all have truly been more of a blessing to me than my family and friends. When I first got sick they were there with me for about four months, but you all have been with me throughout. My daughter brought home A’s this year in math. She has never done that. Also, thanks so much for the Christmas gift cards. I gave them to her, and it made me feel good to be able to give her something besides my love. I see God in the Helene Foundation. Thank you."
