What we aim to solve

Women dealing with breast cancer and treatment go through a very emotional process. Our Founder, Jeanne Wokurka, has gone through 2 fights with breast cancer, in 2011 and 2014.
Breast cancer patients will will feel alone. They will feel terrified. They will feel the need to speak with someone that knows exactly what they are going through. They need answers to their questions. Fight Club Survivor is here for them.
Women dealing with breast cancer and treatment may lose their hair. They may lose their breast(s). They may lose friends. We are here for them. We offer our love and support as well as wigs, breast wear, etc.
Fight Club Survivor is here for these ladies offering personalized care packages to show love and inspiration, Mentors to calm nerves,and an online boutique for their personal needs.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Fight Club Survivor hopes to reach out to all women dealing with breast cancer treatment or soon to be. We want them to fight for not only themselves, but also for their loved ones. The personalized gift in our care package will be a steady reminder.

We advertise on social media platforms and our website.
We continually run fundraisers to bring in funds just to keep us afloat for the year.
As long as we continue to send out care packages, word gets around and the requests come in at an alarming rate.

We run 5 different fundraisers during the year. We budget to make sure we only send out as many care packages as we can afford. Unfortunately, our fundraisers are never very large, but we just space out the shipments of care packages.
Friends and family also give donations to help.

We've accomplished hundreds of women feeling our presence just by offering them our time, support and inspiration. Our feedback is proof of that.
What's next is just to continue getting more and more packages out, while having the funds to complete our mission without fearing of hitting $0 again.
