Testimonial

We knew cancer is scary but it was something we didn’t imagine we’ll ever have to worry about.. until we had to deal with it face to face when Lana was diagnosed with brain cancer.. other than devastation, we were feeling incredibly lost – we knew nothing of how to go thru with our situation.. And BTSS thru Melissa and her team, was the 1st to reach out to us and provided support that we so desparately need at the time. Having a community that can totally relate to what you were going thru is truly a blessing.. amidst pain and suffering was a beautiful sense of belongingness – knowing that you are not alone..The activities and programs they have were not only enjoyed by Lana but by our whole family – it was a village supporting each other and rallying for each other. Thank you BTSS! No matter where in the world we are we will never forget all the love and support you have extended to our family! More power and God Bless!
