Breast Cancer Survivor Seeks Business Grant Or Loan For Dog Kennel

by Kathy
(Birnamwood, WI, USA)

I have been boarding/grooming/training dogs out of my home since my initial breast cancer diagnosis in 2005.

I'm a survivor and I can visualize my business growing and thriving by the end of my chemotherapy. I've got only 10 more weeks of it, and then life starts over!

My business has really taken off, and I need to build a small kennel building on my property to accommodate the growth in business I have experienced.

The problem is, no one will give a cancer patient with unbelievable medical bills a loan to "start a business."

I know the business can be very profitable, it has proven itself.

My husband has been by my side through it all, but we just can't make it on one income. The kennel would allow me to grow the business, pay off my medical debt, and as I said, start life over.

I'm hoping and praying there is someone who can help. I love what I do, and life is too short not to do something you love every day of your life.
