Randi

The diagnosis of cancer and the subsequent treatment takes a tremendous toll on a person. The last thing you want to think about are medical bills.

Last year, Randi was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. Insurance wouldn’t cover a lot of the medication for chemotherapy and the medical costs became a burden. Originally, Randi started a GoFund Me campaign. A gentlemen who did not know Randi, responded to her campaign and referred her to Jewish Free Loan. The interest-free loan enabled Randi to pay the most immediate bills that were due and alleviated the accumulating stress. This enabled her to focus on her treatment and recovery.

It’s been a year since Randi’s diagnosis. She is in the process of healing her body through diet, lifestyle, exercise and vitamin supplements. She recently found out that her chest x-rays are clear, blood work is very good and her blood counts are normal. She is back to her normal life and staying positive.

She saved every single card people sent her because they show the power of positivity. They show what human nature is all about in someone’s time of need and Jewish Free Loan is a big part of that.

“Oh my goodness, I don’t even know how to describe this, we were in so much debt. The medical costs were astronomical. Our insurance would not cover the medication for chemotherapy so we had to pay cash. Jewish Free Loan provided money to us so we were at least able to get a handle on the most immediate bills and alleviate the stress that was accumulating.“Randi, client
