Breast cancer is a disease that affects thousands, if not millions, of people each year. There are women who suffer through the pain of the disease and family and friends who stand by to comfort and support those women. There are organizations that help women who are experiencing the devastating effects of breast cancer.
The American Breast Cancer Foundation raises funds to help those who need the proper screening to diagnose breast cancer as well as the financial help to get the medications that are needed. This foundation began in 1997. It helps by giving grants to those who need the assistance. Specialized bras and wigs are also given to those who might not be able to afford them so that they can feel like they are as normal as possible. Susan G. Komen is a charity that often has races to raise money for the research needed to find a cure for breast cancer. This is one of the largest organizations in the world that helps with breast cancer research and financial assistance for those with breast cancer.
A breast cancer awareness charity is something that can help women and their families through a difficult time in life. It’s important to do research about the charity before donating any money to make sure the funds that are raised will be spent wisely. If you are someone who believes that breast cancer is a disease that can be beat, then the money that you spend is worth that and much more to women who have breast cancer. The donations that are received will go right back to your community as there is likely someone who is affected by breast cancer where you live. There are often sales to raise money or other fundraising events in the community. You might see the work done in a doctor’s office or health center with funds that have been raised. If there are more people who are aware of breast cancer, then there will be more people to join the fight to help cure it or slow the disease so that women can spend time with their families as long as possible.
