I was blind-sided by a diagnosis with a malignant tumor in my colon which spread to my liver. Immediately, my family and friends and healthcare team shared various resources that help people in situations like mine. Yet, without a doubt, the Sanborn Foundation tops this list. By far. This hidden gem of a foundation treated me—and still treats me—with dignity and supports my healing process above and beyond what I could ever imagine. I received a very generous grant from the Sanborn Foundation for my medical needs and an added stipend to be used for integrative therapies…I consider the Sanborn Foundation to be one of the gifts received as to why I am healing so well. From the bottom of my healing heart, “thank you.”
I still feel as if I’m waking up from a dream after talking with you (Sanborn Outreach Coordinator) yesterday. My husband and I are absolutely floored at the kindness and generosity of your organization. From the bottom of our hearts – thank you.
I can’t say enough laudatory things about the Sanborn Foundation. Knowing that the cabs will get me to and from my lengthy appointments in Boston is reassuring—one less concern during treatments. Without the Foundation’s support, [staff’s] kindness and ride-arranging, and the drivers, keeping my appointments wouldn’t be possible. I am grateful for the program and their help.
I wanted to send my deepest, heartfelt thanks for all financial support I was given during a very difficult diagnosis and recovery this year.
Eight months post-surgery, I am fully back to life… working, swimming, travel, time with friends and family.
The support I got from Sanborn was invaluable, and made an uncertain time just a bit easier.
The Sanborn Foundation has helped me greatly during a long treatment period. The reliable transportation to and from the hospital, which took the stress out of my treatment and the precise arrival time, no financial burden, and wonderful companionship of very caring people has made me very comfortable during this long recovery period. I am very grateful that Arlington provides this wonderful program.
Thank you again, Sanborn. Every time we tell a family member how amazing your foundation is their jaws just drop! We are so grateful for all the help you provide.
There really are no words to express our tremendous appreciation to you and your team and to the incredible generosity of Mr. George Sanborn. I read from your site that he originally wanted to build a hospital in Arlington. If he only knew the impact he has had. If I ever had another child – which I won’t – I’d name the baby George!
It is beyond belief what a unique and amazing resource you are for the residents of Arlington. Being diagnosed with cancer has been an emotionally traumatic experience for me on many levels. This includes the overwhelming financial costs that are related to my treatment. The funds that I have received from the Sanborn Foundation are a ray of sunshine and hope in what has been a dark storm and will be of immense help as I continue to struggle with this disease. Thank you very, very much.
We appreciate the profoundly generous support from Sanborn. How do people thank the Foundation?! No thank you letter will ever come close to expressing our gratitude.
I just want to say how incredibly grateful I am to the Sanborn Foundation for their help during my time of need. I was completely overwhelmed when I was diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer. It’s been a whirlwind year – two rounds of chemotherapy/immunotherapy, two surgeries and then radiation, during which the COVID19 outbreak occurred. But the Sanborn Foundation has been so helpful with medical bills and other expenses. I just wanted to reach out and say how grateful I am for all that you have done.
