ROC WALK / 5K RUN 2020!
Partnering to make a difference in the lives of cancer diagnosed individuals.
We have received tons of grants since Oct 2018 and we continue to get more and more every month, since partnering with the Ballard House, and MD Anderson and more hospitals are learning about us every month. We have been able to give grants to 100% of everyone that has applied. To continue to do that, we need your HELP!
Would you consider being a GEST GIVER? This is simply giving a monthly or yearly donation to help bless families battling cancer. Whether your offering is $10/month or $1000/month, it all makes a HUGE difference in the lives of cancer diagnosed individuals – believe me, as one of those that battled cancer, a grant would have helped my family.
These families that have received $100, $200 or $500 grants have been so grateful and I am humbled by how we are making a difference so that they can pay their phone bill, their electricity, pay tolls, parking, get their grass cut or their house cleaned because they are not able to. This is why we created the GEST Foundation and to see the emails from applicants thanking us, is humbling to say the least.
Please join us and become a GEST GIVER today! It’s tax deductible and it can be as little as $1/day.

Marketa is a Stage IV Breast Cancer Patient
My family and I want to thank GEST Foundation, Inc. I’m a stage IV breast cancer patient. I was originally just given only two months when I was diagnosed. The cancer had spread very quickly and I was often sick, could hardly walk, and it was even difficult to breathe. The cancer was in the primary area – the breast, lymph system, bones and to the brain. But, by God’s amazing grace, I just celebrated four years. I continue to fight everyday and it takes every ounce, but I live by His grace. I’ve been on seven different chemotherapy treatments and two different rounds of radiation. I’ve been under chemotherapy treatment since day one. Currently, my treatment plan includes two different chemotherapy treatments – daily.
With four years of solid treatment, the costs are substantial. Not only are the medical costs high, but trying to live a more healthy life is even costly. Currently, my treatments are not fully covered and the costs are substantial. At this point the amount that’s not covered monthly is well over $2,000 – just for the chemotherapy. And the other costs for my care is over $700; therefore, each month, my costs are more than $2,700 and that’s after paying a $7,500 deductible yearly. Other additional medical costs not covered this year amounted to over $5,000. As you can see, with a gift like this, it allows me to continue to maintain my current treatment plan and it gives me and my family a huge blessing.
Thank you again for this blessed gift!
