BENEFITING: Breast Treatment Task Force
ORGANIZER: Breast Treatment Task Force
EVENT DATE: Apr 26, 2015
As many of you may know, for the past several years I have been volunteering for the Breast Treatment Task Force (BTTF), an amazing organization that provides diagnostic follow-up and breast cancer treatment for uninsured low-income women in New York City.
I understand all too well the financial burden of breast cancer, as my mother's breast cancer therapy continues today, two years after her initial diagnosis. (I am happy to report that she recently received another clear bill of health!) Unfortunately, for individuals who are uninsured or underinsured, breast cancer diagnostics and treatment usually lead to large medical debts or bankruptcy.
Last year, my mother and I were overwhelmed by the support from all of you who helped us raise $2,000 for BTTF. I am proud to announce that I will be spinning again on Sunday, April 26th. This year, I hope to raise another $2,000, which can deliver 20 ultrasounds with BTTF's average return on investment of 8:1.
100% of funds raised from the spin will go towards medical services.
