Over 78 cents of every $ goes to supporting young women in your local community and providing breast health education for the entire community. The remainder is allocated toward fund raising and administrative expenses.Â
Did you know that your funds will help to:
- Send 60 survivors to our annual Sandbridge retreat (which is free to survivors). The cost is approx. $650 per girl for the weekend?
- Produce and print 10,000 of our breast health educational calendar, A Calendar To Live By. We donate approximately 80% of those calendars, many to community health clinics in an effort to educate the underserved.
- Financially support our monthly support group gatherings. Last year, we hosted over 180 support group gatherings for our young breast cancer survivors.
