Helping with Utility Bills
We are raising funds to pay the utility bills for 15 families on #GivingTuesday and 30 families by the end of the year. Shine Through the Rain helps pay for heat, hydro, and telephone bills for patients currently in treatment and their families. When you’re dealing with an illness the costs can become overwhelming! #illnessaddsup

How has this illness affected your family in a positive and/or negative way?
It’s made us closer and to see what really matters. My children have missed out on so many things from school functions to family vacations.
What has been the biggest challenge or struggle during treatment?
Having to stay strong and brave for my family even though I don’t feel like I am.
How have you and your family stayed mentally and emotionally healthy?
Take it one day at a time, try not to worry about tomorrow and don’t let yesterday hold you back.
What has brought the most joy or fun to your family’s life during your treatment?
I can’t think of anything here except that I’m happy it’s me and not my husband or children.
What was your first reaction when your family was chosen to receive help from our Rainy Day Fund?
Thank God this will help us get through.
