Impact and Programs

We helped many breast cancer patients financially. We engaged breast cancer patients in sporting events (bowling, dragon boat racing etc.), knitting, and gathering items. We had a feel good event, Private Pink Party for breast cancer patients.
Current Goals
1.To raise enough money that can help all the breast cancer patients we serve and want to serve. We need more financial resources for out of the area patients. A lot of our donations are designated funds. 2.To continue working on education-preventing breast cancer, symptoms of breast cancer, living healthy. 3. To continue to engage clients in survivorship activities-golf, bowling, dragon boat racing, races, private parties, crafts, gathering items, organizing events.
