We are so excited to have not one, not two, but SIX Scoops Challenges happening during this end of the school year season! Click here to sign up for one near you or support a team! A huge thank you to my sisters Paula and Vivian and our friend Vicki for taking on the task of organizing all of these and to all our amazing hosts and volunteers... we will be sharing more about them and these great events soon!
The Scoops Challenges are not only a fun way for kids to get involved and feel empowered to do something to help support their mom or dad or loved one with breast cancer. The Cancer Couch also starts an Angel Fund in honor of someone in every community at the Breast Cancer Center where they receive or received treatment to support metastatic breast cancer patients in financial need in their area.
The Angel Funds have been one of the most rewarding aspects of this foundation. Last week I received our annual report from the Beth Calabotta Fund at the Blessing Center in Illinois stating that they were able to pay a $900 electric bill for a woman with MBC, whose lights were about to be turned off. That money was generated from the Swim Challenges done in Beth's honor and it makes me so happy to know that so much goodness is still being done in her name.
Thank you all for your continued support! Come out and support a Scoops Challenge near you and stay tuned for more information on The Cancer Beat coming soon...tickets will be on sale July 1st! Save the date...9/8/18!!!!
