Upon a routine check-up, James Robbs' doctor reached over and took his hand. James was diagnosed with prostate cancer. He had to retire after 30 years of working with a Dalton company to cope with his illness. After undergoing treatment, James found he was spending his entire monthly budget on mounting medical bills and could no longer afford to pay his monthly rent. He faced the threat of homelessness. James contacted the Salvation Army, a United Way partner agency, which provided him with food assistance, getting his bills up to date, and budgeting. Seven years ago, James was given two weeks to live without treatment. However, thanks to the generosity of United Way investors, James was able to stay comfortably in his home throughout recovery and is currently beating cancer and enjoying retirement. Your gift to United Way prevents homelessness and hunger for those in need in Northwest Georgia.
