My husband and I have attended the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally over 30 times. How long have you been involved with HCF? 6 years Why did you decide to get involved with HCF? I believe in the mission of HCF and have been touched by cancer in many areas of my life. Has cancer impacted your life? Cancer has had a huge impact on my life. First I am a 10 year breast cancer survivor. I am also a daughter, granddaughter and niece of family members that have passed from cancer. I have many memories of my parent's cancer treatments and how it affected them. HCF's mission is to provide practical and immediate financial assistance to eligible cancer patients in our community so they can focus on what matters most: healing. Why do you think that is important or needed? I hate to think that a cancer patient is debating between taking their treatment or paying a bill. My family was lucky enough to be able to afford cancer treatments. I would love every clinic in Lincoln and the surrounding communities to be aware of the assistance that is available to cancer patients in need.
