Hope for the Holidays (Thanksgiving and Christmas)
During this "season of giving", our friends, family and community partners join us to meet the physical, financial, and social needs of families living with breast cancer in the Atlanta area.
Through our partnership with the Grady Health System Georgia Cancer Center for Excellence, we adopt families and provide them with holiday meals, gift baskets and gift cards to assist with pharmaceutical purchases. For Christmas, we add to the impact by including food and other personalized items that could include furniture, appliances, and warm clothing. The children of the participants also receive age-appropriate toys, books, educational gifts, and other holiday treats. Information about sponsorship, hosting Angel Trees, and partnership opportunities is available each year at the beginning of November.
Back to School Backpack Bonanza (July)
Our Young Professional's Council hosts this special event each year to help children whose mom's are battling breast cancer at Grady get off to a great start for the school year.
Providing the kids with new backpacks filled with a variety of school must-haves relieves stress for the moms so they can focus on getting better and gives the kids the supplies and confidence boost they need to succeed in school despite health challenges at home.
We invite the whole family to our Bonanza event where we share a meal, play games, and present the kids with their school goodies. Eric also shares his perspective as a supporter and an encouraging message about the importance of academics and staying positive and focused when a loved one is battling cancer.
