GreaterGood.org grants provided assistance to women suffering from breast cancer and to those needing medical procedures such as mammograms through such organizations as Hope For Two, Living Beyond Breast Cancer, National Breast Cancer Foundation, Patient Access Network Foundation, and the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Grants given to NBCF provided hundreds of free mammograms at clinics and hospitals in several states including Oregon, Washington, Florida, Kentucky, Delaware, Louisiana, and Michigan. This continued support also helped NBCF “carry out our mission to educate women about the life saving techniques of early detection,” wrote Janelle Hail, President/CEO of NBCF.
Funding from GreaterGood Netwok’s “Click Here to Give” program at The Breast Cancer Site paid for 966 mammograms provided by hospitals and clinics, while shopping on GreaterGood Network websites like The Breast Cancer Site store paid for an additional 3,580 mammograms.
Living Beyond Breast Cancer, Patient Access Network Foundation, and UM Comprehensive Cancer Center used GreaterGood.org grants to pay for medications, wigs, and other out-of-pocket expenses not covered by patients’ insurance.
Hope For Two helped pregnant mothers diagnosed with cancer to find support and counseling about the many options available to them for treatment and successful child birth.
Support of these programs and other women’s health grants came from The Breast Cancer Site, the Gifts That Give More [tm] program, and direct donations to GreaterGood.org. Overall, GreaterGood.org donations exceeded $2.6 million to charity in 2012.
