This is Nicole ...

She works two part-time jobs to pay her ever-increasing pile of bills. Recently Nicole’s mom was diagnosed with cancer and requires help getting to and from her doctor appointments. This will result in Nicole missing a lot of work, which she just can’t afford.

What should Nicole do?

What should Nicole do?

  • A

    Tell her mom she can't help, leaving her sick mother to fend for herself.

  • B

    Take the necessary time off work, losing the pay needed to pay for her mom's prescriptions.

What happened?

Knowing neither of these options were ideal, Nicole looked into the other possibilities. She found a United Way Funded Program that provides transportation to medical appointments for seniors. Nicole could rest easy knowing her mom had help getting to and from her appointments.
