The God of hope sent angels down to organize a program such as FamiliesCAN. The program is of immeasurable value. A gift with a message of “Love." Thank you for helping me with my rent and food for 3 months and for so much more. ~ Vonda


Happy Mother's Day. This is to thank you for all the ways in which you have helped us cancer-mothers do special thing for our children — things we would not be able to do otherwise. The graciousness that comes so naturally to you is rare indeed and we are lucky to know you. ~ Catherine


I would like to thank you for accepting my application. I also appreciate your time and hard work. Your help with the Stanford housing, my bills and gas came at a good time because I was feeling down and my bills were becoming worse. I would like to thank you once again for making all my financial problems go away. Now all I have to worry about is my health and I know I’ll get better. Thank you for caring. ~ Alberto


I want to thank you for your generosity in supporting our family this past year. It’s been a challenging time for us and your help with 3 months rent, childcare and guitar lessons for my daughter has made a huge difference in reducing the stress in our lives. And the 2 concerts I’ve been able to attend, thank you. Andrea Boccelli and Barbara Streisand were incredible! Thank you so much for all you have done for us and for all other families. The work you do is so important! ~ Maria


I want to thank you for helping my family with 3 months payments for our daughter’s tuition at such a critical time in our lives. I know for certain that if it hadn’t been for your financial assistance, the stress would have compounded the situation more and adversely affected my search for a full time job. ~ Rebecca


Thank you so much for all you have done and thank you for helping us with rent, food and our car payment. ~ Cliff

Thank you so much for all you did for us during my husband’s illness. Thank you for the gifts, for the help with counseling, with bills and for the parties. Most of all, thank your for caring. Thank you for the work you do. God bless you! ~ Ali










I would like to say thank you so very much to your foundation for all your help and support during my treatment time. Your help with rent and car payments for 2 months helped us more than you know. Thank you once again. ~ Guadalupe R.


Only now I have a little time to say thanks for your help with our credit card debt. The world needs more people as special as you. “Thanks” for all your wonderful ways. ~ Anthony


God bless you all! We are so grateful for the support we received from you. Thank you for helping us with 3 months mortgage and for our expenses while at Stanford. ~ Louie


Thank you FamiliesCAN for your assistance with my rent for 3 months, food and the gift cards during this very difficult time. I don’t know how we would make it without your help. God bless you all, you all are truly angels! ~ Bretta.

Thank you so much for your financial assistance. The help you provided us, camp for my son and Stanford housing, made such a difference. I don’t have to worry about bills on my credit card. I am also so pleased that my son got to go to camp. This would have been impossible without your help. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making this ordeal easier for us. ~ Allan


I would like to take this opportunity to deeply thank you for giving us a car to replace ours that just stopped running. Your tremendous kindness, efforts and the sensitivity you always exhibit has just been overwhelming to me. I honestly don’t know what I would have done without your help and all your efforts. ~ Louise


I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your caring and support. All that the foundation has done for us has been tremendously appreciated. We don’t know what we would have done without you. Thank you for helping us with our rent and food for 3 months, for the gift cards and for our housing expenses at Stanford. May God bless you always! You truly are guardian angels! ~ Dianne


I cannot begin to thank you enough for all you did for our family. At a time when it seemed there was nowhere to turn, you rescued us. Thank you for the help with our rent and food for 3 months and the gift cards. I will always remember and appreciate that. ~ Dan


Thank you for your surprise visit in the hospital. I know how busy a mother's day is — and I'm sure it took a good half of that day to find me a lovely gift and to find my hospital room (no small feat since they moved me six times!). You were a fresh and gracious breath of fresh air — just when I was getting well enough to feel the extreme tedium of those long days in the hospital. ~ Catherine
