Suddenly, out of nowhere, I found a nodule on my breast. My primary doctor immediately got me an appointment in Hyannis with a breast surgeon. I was in shock and had to figure out transportation for radiation treatments from Truro to Hyannis and back nearly every day for 4 weeks.
HOW connected me with the regional transit program and paid for the rides from my house to the hospital and back. Then, they gave me a stipend and I used it for alternative treatment costs. This all got me through a very difficult time.
HOW was there for me when I really needed it and I still need it. Kindness and support with a wonderful community aspect is what HOW offers.
