“The AFC helped to stabilize and uplift us during an impossibly harrowing time.”
– Lauren Brotman
When I was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer and told that I would have to undergo 18 months of aggressive treatments, several major surgeries, and wouldn’t be able to take on contracts for over a year and a half, I had no idea how my husband and I and our 5-year-old son would be able to cope, all while moving across the country. The terror I felt was inexplicable.
The AFC, without hesitation, gave us months of support that allowed a huge amount of our financial anxiety to be eased while I was undergoing the most difficult part of the journey. This incredible act allowed me to focus on my physical, mental, and emotional survival. The AFC helped to stabilize and uplift us during an impossibly harrowing time. I encourage anyone who can to contribute to this vital organization. The support they give to actors is, in the purest sense of the word, life-saving.
