Thank you from the bottom of my heart. When others turned me down for help, your fund was what saved my future. Sincerely, L.
Thank you very much for your help. I don’t know what I would have done. I am a waitress with 2 kids and a husband with a mental illness. I am the only one working. We couldn’t take care of another child the right way. Thank you!
Thank you Peggy Bowman Second Chance Fund! I would not have been able to get my procedure without the money you provided. I am an 18-year-old freshman in college who just got her first job. I have so much to look forward to in life before I decide to have children. I want to be married and financially stable when I have my first child, so I can give him/her everything they deserve. Thank you for assisting with my dream. Your contribution is life-changing. Thank you again so much for making this possible. Even after saving for a month, I still didn’t have the funds I needed to take control of my life. Now my future is bright and full of possibilities. Thanks for making a difference!
Thank you for the donation. It’s been a really tough process to go through. We were deciding whether or not to follow through. We decided not to due to finances. Both my boyfriend and I are full-time students. I’m really appreciative, and cannot thank you enough!
I lost my first child in 2004 to SIDS @ 4 mos. I had a daughter in 2005. I had a miscarriage in 2009. When I found out this baby would only live hours after birth I knew I couldn’t mentally handle carrying full term. Thank you.
I just wanted to thank you for your help and kindness. I didn’t know what I was going to do. I had just lost my job and had two kids to take care of. If I were to get rich in the future I’ll be sure to donate. Thank you.
Dear Supporters, I thank you very much for helping me through this rough time in my life. I pray that God continues to bless you so that you can continue to be a blessing to others.
This decision was very hard. Heart wrenching in fact. I felt completely alone. Who would want to help someone to end a pregnancy? If I couldn't even afford an abortion, how could I afford another child? Thank you so much for helping. In the future, I will never make the mistake of being unprepared again. Thank you again.
Thank you so much with help on funding this abortion. I am in a tight spot financially and have a 2 year old son. I think it is unfair to bring more children into this world and struggle with them. I appreciate the help and your decision to support a woman's choice--S.
Thank you so much for your help and for being so kind!!
Thank you for all the help. I will be able to continue my education as a nurse and be able to help others in my shoes one day--L.
Thank you so much! I was so scared and felt very alone until I heard about you!
Thank you for your assistance in my time of need. I am a junior in college and have a lot of dreams ahead of me. Having a child right now wasn’t in the plan. With no one to help me or be there for me this was the only way. So once again, thank you.
Thank you so much for your donation. Please believe your organization is a godsend to myself and among other women as well. Sincerely, B.
How can I begin to tell you how appreciative I am to you? You are called the Peggy Bowman Second Chance Fund, and you did, indeed give my life a second chance.
I am only 14 years old and too young to get pregnant. I really feel so stupid that I wasn't more careful. There is no way I can have a baby now. I know in my heart this is the right decision. I am just so glad I have the decision. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me in my time of need.
It really is hard to find people in this world who can understand something as personal as abortion. And that it is a woman’s choice with what to do with her body. You are truly an inspiration. Thank you so much for the funding your organization has provided for me. Without your help I would not have had the courage to face another day. The message you deliver is such an inspiration. I wish all people could understand that there are circumstances that make it hard for a young lady as myself to have a child and be able to provide care and support when there is no financial income.
You have given me hope and strength. It is rare to find a person with a good heart in this world; I am just so happy that I was one of the lucky few who did.”
The results of our sonogram done at our local hospital were devastating. I was carrying twins that were conjoined at the chest. I was sent to KU Medical Center where I found out the twins also were sharing a heart with only 6 chambers, one baby had a bladder but no rectum and the other had no bladder and an unexplained mass near the lungs. They shared an umbilical cord with not enough veins running through it to support both babies. Had we chosen to carry to term, there would be a risk to myself and a very minimal chance of either baby surviving. My husband had been laid off from work. I had worked one week at my new job and am attending nursing school. There was no way for us to come up with the money we needed. The state of Kansas would not assist us. Our family helped as much as they could, but it still would not have been enough. So from the bottom of our hearts....THANK YOU. M.
My name is TH, and I am writing you this letter because you have changed my life for the better. Until you decided to help me, I felt hopeless and very depressed but now I have a second chance to become who I know I should be. Because of you, I have the motivation to try to achieve my goals. Once again, thank you for helping me help myself.
Your donation will never, ever be forgotten.
I was sexually assaulted and found myself stuck. You have made my life worth living again. You have no idea how amazing it is to know there are great people out there like you who care about a young woman's health. I am so grateful and appreciative.
To My Angel, the last week has been so hard and confusing for me and my husband. We are farmers and have two wonderful boys. It's hard work, but we do it together. Your help was music to my ears. I feel like a person again and I can hold my head up. I am ready to go on with my life! Thank you so much!
Thank you for your help at this point in my life. I appreciate your open-mindedness and understanding in this difficult decision. It has opened my eyes in a world full of judgement.
I have been graced with funding from you. I can not put into words how thankful I am for this. I live two hours from the facility I'm visiting today. I also live paycheck to paycheck with a son. May God bless you in all the wonderful service you provide for other women. I hope to one day pay it forward--forever indebted.
Thank you so much. I promise this will not happen again. I have a second chance now and I will make something of myself.
I would like to say how thankful I am for the help you gave to get me through this extremely difficult time in my life. You don't know how much this has meant to me. I was in a terrible situation with no money and this was an amazing gift. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Thank you for making this possible for me! I have just finished nursing school and am beginning my hard, sought-after career, and your generous gift has made it possible for me to realize my dreams. I will never forget the second chance you gave me today.
Peggy Bowman Second Chance Fund--thank you for your generous, non-judgemnetal donation. Unwanted pregnancies do not happen to people like me. They happen to negligent, poor, irresponsible women, or to high schoolers. I am in a bad dream now, because I have an unwanted pregnancy and I can't come up with the funds to pay for my own abortion! The clinic though has been remarkable and no one has made me feel ashamed. And YOU have made it happen for me!
Words can not express my gratitude! Thank you from the bottom of my heart! You were there to lend a helping hand in helping me with the cost of my procedure. When it is possible, I am going to GIVE BACK to you. Just wait and see.
I am so grateful for what you're going for me. When I first found out I was pregnant I immediately told my boyfriend. After he found out I asked him to help me get an abortion. He stopped talking to me and then for weeks he didn't show up at school and changed his phone number. I had to find out through one of his friends that he moved. It took me a long time to tell my Dad what was going on with me because I didn't want him disappointed in me. I had just been doing so well and getting good grades I didn't want my Dad to know his little girl made a mistake. Ever since I told my Dad he has been helping me throughout this whole situation and he supports my decision. He has been so great to me through it all. Once again I am truly grateful for the support you've given me.
Dear Second Chance Fund--I thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for helping me fund my abortion. After having that emotional conversation with you over phone, I realized I was making the right decision. As a single mother raising a six month old on my own, I knew having another child so soon just wasn't for me. I am a United States Marine Corps combat veteran and that itself is hard enough. Without you or your fund, I would've given up hope. I cannot express how grateful I am. I will never forgot that phone call and how you just knew. Just knowing someone was there to tell me they loved me and everything will be ok, just gave me so much motivation. I can live a happy life and wait for the right time to have another baby. I'm so glad you understand. Thank you so much. God bless. Semper Fi.
