A 30 year old man who had leukemia and now is in remission after a bone marrow transplant. He works part-time but has developed graft versus host disease that creates eye issues that affect his ability to work full-time. His mother and father have both died within the last 3 years of cancer.
“The MEGGS foundation assistance program has helped me in so many ways. As a Leukemia survivor, I like most people thought the struggles of cancer would end with remission. However, for most survivors, it still feels like the beginning. As a young adult who had to work multiple part-time jobs to make ends meet, the stress of rent, bills, and medical debt was like a dark cloud hovering over me. The MEGGS foundation assistance came at a time I needed it the most. MEGGS helped me by paying my rent for five months. It was truly a blessing that I never knew I needed. The weight that was lifted off my shoulders for those five months was indescribable. Because of it, I was able to get back on my feet and set a solid foundation under it. I was able to focus on my career and was promoted to a full-time role as an advisor to students at Central Piedmont Community College. I was also able to begin paying off bills and set a plan for my life moving forward. None of this would have been possible without the MEGGS foundation assistance. I am truly grateful for them and all they have done for me. Thank you!!”
