The LifeStyle team was introduced to Denise Santos through Marta Fiol at the Cancer Care Centers Foundation (CCCF) in November.

Santos, a single mother, was diagnosed with breast cancer in January 2013 and underwent a double mastectomy shortly after.

“After getting to know Ms. Santos personally, it was apparent how desperately she needed a hand up,” says Karen Hufford, marketing director of LifeStyle Homes.

As she endured regular chemotherapy treatments throughout the year, she struggled to pay monthly living expenses and provide for her two teenage children. Her run-down car had multiple problems, making it difficult for her to get to and from medical appointments.

“After getting to know Ms. Santos personally, it was apparent how desperately she needed a hand up,” says Karen Hufford, marketing director of LifeStyle Homes.

“It became crucial for us at LifeStyle to not only fulfill her family’s Christmas wish lists, but to make a real difference in their lives as they start a new year.”

LifeStyle Homes assumed the Santos family’s living expenses for the month of December.

OUTPOURING OF KINDNESS

Many of the company’s employees and subcontractors – including Dutton Drywall; Southern Colors, Inc.; M&M Tile and Carpet Co.; Oceanside Cabinets, LLC; CNS Drywall; and 84 Lumber – all chipped in generous funds. Additionally, specific wish-list items – including a laptop computer and full-sized bed and writing desk – were donated by Outsource Orlando, LLC and Kay Green Design, Inc., respectively.

With the outpouring of kindness, LifeStyle Homes was able to help the Santos family afford holiday decorations, gifts, and meals, as well as offer additional funds to help fix her car.
