A life changing experience

July 23, 2019

Ten minutes after informing Gertud Kerine Tusnovics that she had Early Stage 2 Breast Cancer, a nurse put her in touch with We Care Manatee. Gertud marvels at how quickly the application process went, and treatment began. 

“Everything happened so fast, so quick,” she says.

Thanks to what Tusnovics describes as “a really amazing rapid response” from Kyle and the We Care team, within a very short period she received the services—a biopsy, ultrasound, two surgeries, radiation, bone density test and oncology visits—needed to remove the cancer and restore her health. 

“I want to thank you and your team for helping me get through my breast cancer diagnosis. Special thanks to all the doctors and nurses who were always very helpful and friendly. I am grateful that I found your organization and hope you will be able to continue helping patients in need—like me,” the grandmother of three expressed in an email thanking Kyle and the We Care Manatee team for their kindness and support. 

“I really don’t know where I’d be without Kyle and We Care Manatee,” she said. “They were very very helpful and caring. We Care Manatee changed by life.”
