“I tell people about The Singletons all of the time!” ~ Amy, who received help from The Singletons from 2011-2013

Jen first found a lump in her breast on a cool September day in 2013 while playing with her 3-year old son. Her doctors found it was benign. But five months later, she found another lump, this time it was a very aggressive form of breast cancer, two tumors barbelled together.
