Cancer Organization Launches Financial Assistance Program

Ribbons for a Cure Inc. is a local cancer non-profit organization.

Ribbons for a Cure Inc., a local cancer non-profit organization, has announced the launch of its newly established Financial Assistance Program. This program will provide a one-time financial assistance benefit for cancer-related prescription medication, diagnostic testing or CT scans to individuals who have been diagnosed with cancer.  Applications are available beginning July 15.

Ribbons for a Cure Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit, was established in April 2017 to provide cancer outreach and support in the community through education and awareness initiatives.  However, due to the ever-increasing cost of general cancer care and treatment, especially during these difficult times, the organization established the program to provide financial support to those in need.

“We are pleased to add this important component of cancer support to our organization’s services.  We recognize that the financial aspect of cancer treatment is an ongoing and burdensome responsibility that many cancer patients struggle to sustain.  Therefore, we have implemented this program to help share the cost of dealing with cancer,” said Petra Victor, president and founder.

The Financial Assistance Program is available to cancer patients and survivors who have resided in the U.S.V.I. permanently for the past five years.  The benefits will be awarded based on the availability of funds. Upon approval of the application, beneficiaries may continuously submit receipts within a 12-month period, from the date of approval, for reimbursement of expenses.  After the financial award has been exhausted, beneficiaries may apply for additional funding in the next calendar year.

Funding for the Financial Assistance Program was received through the generous support of donors and local Virgin Islands businesses.

Applications are available online at www.ribbonsforacure.net.  Submitted applications will be reviewed and processed within two to four weeks. For information, call 514-5214.

Cute as a button. Darling little princess. Please protect them

Make sure they Mask 😷 up.

Loving and trusting someone is such a risk and i don't wish any woman to be in the same shoes as i was sometime back when I caught my husband red-handed with my own best friend in our own bed. I couldn't believe it when I saw it and my heart started beating so fast and felt like my body is shaking then I ran straight to my elder sister's house. I cried so much and my sister left me to cry and told me it would help ease the pain I was feeling. Then she sat me down and asked me if I still love my husband and I told her yes of course, and she told me that we all learn and grow through mistakes and no one is perfect and told me that if I wanted my man back I should fight for him and never trust friends again.My sister told me to contact profisma+27783320386 who had helped her husband with financial issues and told me he will help me bring my man back. It took me weeks to think about it because we come from a strong religious background but things worsened because I could not even concentrate at work and i got fired, and after that, i remembered what my sister had told me about consulting with him. That's when I contacted him and told everything, he listened, and told me that he will solve all my problems in 48 hrs. Since it was my first time doing this, i could not believe his words just like that but i had to wait until the time he had promised. I was asked to buy materials to help me which I did, we begun the prayer and results were delivered in three days. My husband called me and asked me where I was, and he came straight to me and confessed how my best friend seduced him, and he was sorry to fall into her trap and showed me all the messages my best friend was sending to him and promised never to see her again and promised to love me and only me. That evening he took me to a romantic dinner, Since prophet isma helped me, I got a better paying job than the previous one, my husband is back to the old man I used to know and he loves me so much and does everything to see that am happy. Thank you so much prophet, your spells indeed work. If you're going through struggles, you can text him on WhatsApp +27783320386 or call him
