Brides Against Breast Cancer works two ways. You can buy a donated gown for your wedding or you can donate your wedding dress after the wedding. Either way you are helping those afflicted with metastatic breast cancer to fufill a dream they might not be able to accomplish without help.
Both of these are a part of Making Memories Breast Cancer Foundation. Their mission statement is-
“To provide an opportunity for metastatic breast cancer patients’ dream or wish to be fulfilled by providing a special time of 'Making Memories' together with their families, a chance that might not have become a reality without the assistance of the Making Memories Breast Cancer Foundation."
"To advance the awareness of breast cancer and to educate the public about the vast resources and support available to breast cancer patients and their families."
My mom had a modified-radical mastectomy in 1984 on her left breast. Thankfully, they were able to get everything. She found the lump early and didn't have to go through chemo or radiation. She lived for 21 more years before succumbing to lung cancer in May of 2005.
