What’s New!

  • ¬†Angel Appeal LogoOn December 3rd,¬†we launched our Annual Angel Campaign. On #GivingTuesday¬† and throughout this season of caring, Beyond Boobs! asked¬†our friends to make our annual Angel Appeal part of your year end giving, where donors can DOUBLE their impact. It’s a sweet story about a wonderful little girl who lost and gave so much.

 

Katy was just 6 and Ellie, only 2, when their mother, Catherine Nesmith-Perez, passed away from breast cancer last year.¬† An original calendar girl and founding member of Beyond Boobs!, Catherine’s life was cut way too short by this devastating disease, but her loving and thoughtful spirit lives on through her daughters.¬† Upon losing a tooth in October, Katy wanted her Tooth Fairy money donated to the organization that helped her mother and continues to be there for her family now. 1456489_10151984737742235_1894714104_n
Inspired by her special guardian angel, Katy chose to give a gift to Beyond Boobs!  We hope you will choose to do the same as we roll out our annual Angel Appeal.  Beyond Boobs! has a host of earthly angels who so strongly support our mission that they very generously have offered to match donations made to us in the month of December. catherine perez family
May the “angels” inspire you to make your own year-end gift to Beyond Boobs!¬† Your donation will allow us to strengthen and expand our programs so we can support even more young women as they travel the difficult, isolating journey of breast cancer.¬† Sadly, like Catherine, not all of our Boobers! survive the disease, but Beyond Boobs! will make the time they have left with their families the best it can possibly be.¬† On behalf of all of the women served by Beyond Boobs!, now and in the future, we thank you.

  • Congratulations to ticket #250 bought by¬†Talena Velez from Rushville, Indiana.¬† She is a 7 year breast cancer survivor who was diagnosed at the age of 32, is engaged to Joe, and has an 18 year son named Christian. She¬†noticed us at¬†the Young Survivor’s Coalition Conference in Seattle earlier this year.¬† She decided she wanted to support a charity in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month in October and looked us up online. Not knowing us personally she first reviewed our¬†entire website¬†before making the decision to buy 3 raffle tickets from us and support our efforts.¬†She had no idea she would actually win – she really just wanted to support an organization aligned with her values¬†– ‚Äúliving life to the fullest.”¬†¬†¬†¬†She is indeed living life beyond breast cancer, is¬†thrilled to be a winner, and is already planning her trip to Virginia to¬†pick up¬†her 2014 Ford Mustang.¬† She is also excited to meet us at the next YSC conference in Orlando where Beyond Boobs! will be a national speaker.
