Alison is a 30-year-old mother to a 17-month-old daughter. She lost her own mother to breast cancer at a young age and she was subsequently diagnosed with the BRCA 1 gene mutation, making a breast cancer diagnosis likely. She is a stay-at-home mother and her husband is a Firefighter in the Austin, Texas area. Due to the cost of living and other extenuating circumstances, Alison needed help paying the out of pocket expenses to undergo a prophylactic mastectomy and reconstruction. AiRS assisted with a grant to cover these expenses.
Message from Alison: Thank you so much. I cannot tell you how much this means to my family and me and how much stress this lifts off of us during this time! I am thrilled and so grateful to you and your organization.
