Tiana Caldwell of Kansas City, Missouri, is one of approximately 40 million Americans who are in danger of being evicted from their homes by the end of the year; a direct result of the economic slowdown and massive job losses caused by the coronavirus outbreak, according to a national housing group. 

Caldwell lost her job and was in treatment for ovarian cancer when she and her family were evicted — in 2019. 

“We had gotten back on our feet, we were doing good, and then I got cancer … again,” she told VOA via Zoom. “So, I was actively in treatment when we were being evicted. … It was a bad experience.”
