I am proud to partner with Kara’s Cupcakes again this year for Breast Cancer Awarness Month. So many depend on the services of the Breast Cancer Emergency Fund right here in the Bay Area. Let’s dig in and make a difference!
The fight against Breast Cancer is very important to me as I lost my favorite aunt, Mary Lou to the disease. She battle breast cancer for years beating it a couple of times only to have it come back. Other aunts and cousins of mine have also battled and won so I know how hard the fight is. I know firsthand that early detection and prevention is key, so any chance that we can spread the word about preventative measures and raise money for research, I am eager to do my part.
I’m incredibly proud to be a part of morning show and radio station that is so dedicated to fighting breast cancer. Nearly every one of us knows someone who has been affected by breast cancer. These are our mothers, sisters, daughters, wives, and partners. I’ve heard so many stories of courage and triumph over the past few years working with the Breast Cancer Emergency Fund. I’m excited about the great things we and the listeners will accomplish again this year.
About the Breast Cancer Emergency Fund:
Breast Cancer Emergency Fund (BCEF) helps low-income people battling breast cancer pay the bills when they are too sick to work. The first and only Bay Area organization dedicated to providing breast cancer-specific emergency financial assistance, BCEF’s goal is quite simple: to reduce mortality rates and to increase the likelihood of someone receiving consistent medical care without worries of financial ruin. BCEF short-term emergency financial assistance may be used to subsidize life-extending medical care and maintain safe housing, essential utilities and other basic needs.
BCEF often has an immediate impact on the lives of low-income women battling breast cancer who are struggling to continue treatment and preserve stability for their families. The application process is simple, quick, and easy. Clients may access BCEF directly in person, via telephone, or via one of 40 community partners nearest them. BCEF structures its application process to eliminate unnecessary travel which is often very difficult due to cost or health complications. Each year, BCEF is a lifeline for over 500 families in San Francisco, San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties. Since 2001, BCEF has provided more than $1.5 million to people in need.
