It is well known that women undergoing breast cancer treatment face many “out of pocket” expenses that quickly add up. The treatment or on-going treatment expense, the trauma the “survivors” or “graduates” as we like to call them face is not as easy as it seems. Some women, the cancer may go away but for some they don’t. Going back to chemotherapy, radiation therapy and other treatments is the only option towards survival.
Women after years since having a mastectomy still have socks in their bra because they can’t afford to buy breast prosthesis. They don’t know where to get the basic support or they’re not wearing the proper garment after a mastectomy or lumpectomy surgery. For many women, life is devastating and having a normal life becomes difficult.
Alicia Vianga, the founder knew it was time to start making a difference, and from that, After Breast Cancer was born to ensure that women have access to basic needs and to provide mastectomy bras, mastectomy camisoles and breast prostheses to women who are financially unable to afford them.
As majority of organizations focus on Research, and the Cure for breast cancer. After Breast Cancer focuses on women who have survived, who don’t have insurance, who cannot have their basic needs met after a mastectomy or lumpectomy surgery. Creating a beautiful life and ensuring the graduates feel their beauty once again is the motto what the organization is built upon.
Your contribution of every dollar towards this cause will be spent to bring happiness and smiles to the lives of these beautiful survivors/graduates.
