Maria, a mother of two young children, discovered that her cancer had returned, and she needed radiation and chemotherapy.

Her husband continued to work to receive insurance, logging overtime to increase the family's income. Cancer Awareness was able to help with some of the bills.

But they fell behind on their mortgage.

Bluffton Self Help paid a portion of their home loan to keep them in good standing with the bank. This eased their minds, allowing Maria to concentrate on recovery and her family.

Bluffton Self Help provides a broad range of human services for poor working families, the disabled, sick and elderly.
