How Lynda gained a sense of relief and comfort from God’s Love

Sometimes bad things happen to good people. Like they did to our client Lynda. First diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010, the cancer returned in 2016, this time spreading to her hipbone. Lynda found herself very sick, financially unsound and feeling all alone. Her parents, her only safety net, had passed away around the same time. She says:

“Every part of my life was hard. Especially financially and emotionally … I was very alone. There I was, thinking that the cancer was over, and now it’s back again, but worse. It was hard to go on.”

Thankfully, a social worker connected Lynda with God’s Love We Deliver and she became a client. Lynda now receives nutritious, medically tailored meals delivered to her door, free of charge and full of love. Not only that, but she also has access to unlimited nutrition counseling with our Registered Dietitian Nutritionists.

"I had no other food. It was really nice when I got my first meal delivery from God's Love, because you feel like someone really cares about you."

Now that Lynda receives services from God’s Love, a weight has been lifted from her shoulders and life is a little easier. And it’s not just the medically tailored meals, but the extra special touches that remind Lynda that someone cares:

“God’s Love does nice things – on your birthday they give you a cake, and on the holidays they give you a basket with nice treats in it. It feels good. God’s Love makes you feel that you don’t stand alone. At least you have somebody.”

“I want to say thank you so much. I think I would be really lonely without God’s Love. The connection means so much.”
