"There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.” 
― John Holmes

From Laurie sussman, msw, lsw, radiation oncology counselor

"The Give Back Foundation proved to be a lifesaver for a young patient we were treating for rectal cancer.  She was a hard-working single woman who needed surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatments.  Despite the assistance she was receiving from available government programs, the costs of medical care and daily living, coupled with her inability to continue working, was an unsustainable existence.  The financial grant she received from GBF provided her the ability to remain in her one bedroom apartment.  If also offset the cost of food, money for transportation to her medical appointments and other needed medical supplies.  I am happy to report this patient was able to complete all her treatments and has returned to work and even made a contribution to The GIve Back Foundation to be used to help others."


From Tracy Grafton, Licensed social worker, jfk medical center, haven hospice

"Over the years, The Give Back Foundation has been the glue that has held things together for many families, often making the difference between being evicted, having dinner on the table that night, having transportation to/from life-saving treatments, losing their car, having a burial and funeral or making that month's mortgage payment.  It has been an honor to connect people with The Give Back Foundation and I use that term sincerely because that's how it feels.  Thank you for the amazing service you provide in your mission to "Give Back" to the community."
