More Moments More Memories: Who We've Helped

The More Moments More Memories Foundation is dedicated to helping cancer patients with unmet financial needs access life-saving clinical trials. If you lack the financial means to participate in an oncology clinical trial that could improve the quality and quantity of your life, we may be able to help. Here are the stories of people we've helped access clinical trials.

 

"One day, on our road trip out to Seattle, Steve and I were able to drive through the Badlands National Park and Mt. Rushmore. For that one day, I forgot I was even sick. It was like I was just on vacation. This grant means the world to Steve and I. Thank you!"


Lianne was diagnosed at 37 with stage 2 breast cancer, treated with chemotherapy, double mastectomy, radiation and declared cancer free. At 39, her cancer returned as stage 4 with metastasis to her brain. She is now being treated with a novel clinical trial therapy in Boston that can provide more time with the people she loves. "I am at a loss for words. I don't even know how to say thank you for something this amazing. I truly am so appreciative. To not have to worry about how I will pay for the next trip...what friend can I ask for miles, what credit card has room, can my parents move around more money from their retirement, and so on....what an absolute gift. THANK YOU." - Lianne


 

Belinda is 46 with stage 4 breast cancer, which metastasized to the liver and brain. After exhausting all available treatment options, she is now receiving a clinical trial treatment in Chicago. The trial can help Belinda meet her wish to see her children, ages 18, 15, and 12, grow up.

 


"This is the best news I've received in years. Without this funding I would have to drop out of the clinical trial in St. Louis which has been showing progress on treating my cancer". - Ron
