Sarena & her son Matthew are a part of the Whitehouse YMCA family in Tyler, Texas. Matthew loves attending the childcare program and often asks his mom to pick him up a little later so he has more time to play with his friends.
“Mrs. Barbra, who works at the Whitehouse YMCA, has been a blessing to my family and I don’t have to worry about Matthew while he is in the care of the YMCA.”
Since enrolling her son in the Y’s childcare program, Sarena has been diagnosed with invasive breast cancer and will be in treatment for the next five years. Her medical costs have gone up tremendously since her diagnosis. YMCA leadership & staff stepped in to help by providing her family with a childcare scholarship for Matthew’s care.
“Due to having this scholarship, I can now concentrate on my health without the stress of paying for childcare, working and receiving my breast cancer treatments. The YMCA was a huge blessing to our family during the immediate and aftermath of my diagnosis.”
