Stephone's Story

Stephone Cage worked as a broadcast news photographer for more than 25 years. In 2019, Stephone was diagnosed with aggressive cancer and he was unable to work. His wife took leave from her position to become his full time caregiver. They struggled to makes ends meet. The Broadcasters Foundation of America awarded Stephone a monthly grant to help pay for his household and medical expenses. We share Stephone's story in his honor.

"We thought it was going to be a difficult task to receive funding. Then the checks came in and we were able to pay our bills. It was truly like manna from heaven. Broadcasters Foundation saved my way of life."
