A Bridgeport woman thanked News 12 Connecticut and Amy's Angels for helping her as she battles colorectal cancer.
Isis Wright, 33, is not only an advocate for colorectal cancer - she's been fighting it for the past three years. She says she was worried she wouldn't always be there for her daughter.
She says her state-funded insurance limits the amount of supplies she is allowed to purchase during a 30-day period and she went over that limit due to flareups with her illness.
Wright says she's determined to overcome whatever obstacle that is put in front of her. In the middle of fighting cancer, she got her high school diploma, then set her sights on higher eductation - planning to become a counselor like her mentor Jorge Cruz.
News 12 Connecticut shared Wright's story with Bob Fiondella, the founder of the nonprofit Amy's Angels, and he agreed to help her with some medical expenses not covered by insurance.
Fiondella says Wright herself is a ray of hope to anybody struggling during this time in history.
Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month is in March. Amy's Angels will be working with Wright to build awareness about the disease.
