KBP Cares…. In a matter of one day, my life was forever changed. In January of 2015 I went to the doctor for my routine checkup and within a short time was told that I had breast cancer and needed chemo and radiation. At first, it was disbelief but then reality set in. Rather than being worried about my illness, all I could think about was how I was going to provide for my husband and I as I am the sole provider because he is disabled. I was turned down for short-term disability and I had to wait for 90 days for long-term disability to kick in. I tried to work so that my family would not suffer, but I physically couldn’t do it.
At this point, I didn’t feel like I had anywhere to turn. This is where KBP Cares came to my rescue and gave me hope to be able to fight this disease. It was due to the generosity of the caring people in the company that allowed me the opportunity to focus on fighting cancer and getting well again. The program allowed me peace of mind with the grant that was provided that paid my monthly bills. The weight was lifted off my shoulders. To this day, I cannot put into words how I feel about this foundation the team in KBP for making KBP Cares available for our family.
FYI…It’s been a year since I finished treatment and I am a SURVIVOR!!! Without it, I don’t believe I would have beat the Cancer.
Thank you to KBP CARES!
