To Natick Families
The mission of Embrace A Family is to provide Natick families who are challenged with a cancer diagnosis, direct access to a community and support network. The program is a committee of the Rotary Club of Natick, a non-profit organization designed to meet the needs of the community through service.
Families cannot battle cancer alone. The financial and emotion strain on a family can be devastating throughout the treatment and recovery phases of cancer. The Embrace A Family program is a means for families to access a local lifeline for support.
"I'M GONNA KICK CANCER'S BUTT!"
What a great quote by our amazing recipient Carly Tobin. She is an adorable 10 year old who loves to dance, play soccer, make slime and spend time with friends. Carly's life and her family's lives were turned upside down when she was diagnosed with a Wilms Tumor in June.
At the Fenway Park Jimmy Fund Telethon this spunky young lady told WEEI radio personalities that she is going to "kick cancer's butt" and how grateful she is for everyone around her and that her cancer is treatable.
Cancer is a horrible disease.
Watching your loved one endure surgeries, chemotherapy and radiation is difficult for every family member. Embrace A Family's mission is to help families defray some of the emotional and financial hardships so they can concentrate on their loved ones.
"Our family is beyond grateful for all that Embrace A Family has helped do since our entire world was flipped upside down. They have helped lift a ton of burden off our shoulders during a time where we can focus solely on our daughter and her needs...It certainly has been a Huge blessing!"
Kerri-Ann Tobin (Carly's mom)
