The other day I had a man contact me who has started a wonderful foundation in memory of his sister who lost her battle with breast cancer. The foundation raises money to help ease the financial burden of those battling the disease and they are currently running a fundraiser on causes.com.
Below is a portion of his email to me:
The Christina S. Walsh Breast Cancer Foundation is a non-profit whose mission is to provide assistance and comfort to breast cancer patients who are suffering financial hardships. My family and I started the Foundation 7 years ago after my 32 year old sister, Christina Walsh, lost her battle with breast cancer. To date we've raised over a quarter of a million dollars and haven't turned away any patients who have requested our help. We're currently running a fundraiser on Causes.com and we'd love it if you could help us in our efforts to spread the word about our the fundraiser. Please visit our website for more information at www.christinaswalshbcf.org, from which the fundraiser can be accessed directly. You can also read about how we raise money, and the different ways those funds are used to help ease the burdens of patients so that they can focus more directly on regaining
their health. And please feel free to contact me with any specific questions you might have. Thanks, and best of luck with your health and with your wonderful blog.
Treasurer, The Christina S. Walsh Breast Cancer Foundation
Thanks Matt for letting us help spread the word!
Blessings to you, your family, and your wonderful foundation,
