Charting impact

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

Providing on-going funding for research and programs that promote and utilize new and advanced therapies in the treatment of breast cancer and other degenerative diseases.

To increase our position of supplying much needed equipment, medical supplies and medicines to hospitals and clinics. These supplies will many times mean the difference between life and death for the patients of the hospitals and clinics.

To continue to provide educational information to victims of breast cancer; so that they might make an informed decision on how and where to treat their disease. In addition, provide educational information for the early detection and prevention of breast cancer.

To increase our “networking” with other medical non-profit organizations so as to increase the awareness of new and advanced treatments for breast cancer. The opportunities for helping individuals with breast cancer are many—the resources are limited. It will become essential to build a strong network of non-profit organizations to work together to find a cure, educate women and help as many women as possible.
We need to set up a network of social media outreaches to share our information to as many woman as posssible.

We have hired a media consultant to help us set up the network of social media outreaches. Also, we have acquired the help of a volunteer to help us with our fundraising efforts.

We have upgraded our status on Guidestar to Gold. Our information provided will reach thousands of more people.
We also are working with a advertising program through google. Our consultant and volunteer are helping us with this endeavor!
