Ten Thousand Sisters
In the last ten years, over 200,000 women in Canada have been diagnosed with breast cancer.
This is an invitition to tens of thousands of breast cancer survivors - "sisters" - to give back to their community in a meaningful way.
When you were going through months of treatment, you may have been well supported by your family, friends and colleagues and perhaps, even the company where you work.
But for many, this is not their experience. Already finding it difficult to make ends meet before their diagnosis of breast cancer, they face a financial crisis at a time in their lives when they are feeling ill and vulnerable and very overwhelmed.
We're asking you to give back to the most vulnerable in your community - breast cancer patients who are stuggling to pay for basic necessities.
A $10 monthly donation will help patients with the cost of food, shelter, medications, wigs, prosthetics, hospital parking, child care and restorative therapies.
But most importantly, it will help to ease the stress of their financial burden so they can focus simply and solely on fighting their disease.
Breast cancer is hard enough without the financial burden it brings.
