Featured Charity: Making Memories Breast Cancer Foundation (by Judy)

Making Memories Breast Cancer Foundation is exactly that: an organization that makes memories, wishes for those who have metastatic breast cancer, and, depending on the wish, their families.

Their mission is:

To provide an opportunity for metastatic breast cancer patients’ dream or wish to be fulfilled by providing a special time of ‘Making Memories’ together with their families, a chance that might not have become a reality without the assistance of the Making Memories Breast Cancer Foundation.

To advance the awareness of breast cancer and to educate the public about the vast resources and support available to breast cancer patients and their families.

Recognizing the huge financial strain placed on families wherein a member has metastatic breast cancer, Making Memories provides a way for metastatic breast cancer patients to make wishes come true, whether they’re in the form of a trip with their famly, a way to bring family to their bedside, or grants for publishing memoirs or other endeavors.

Making Memories hosts events and promotions as fundraisers. In addition, their website is a source of information about subjects including breast cancer facts and FAQs. Naking Memories currently has a list of wishes from people who have applied to Making Memories.

I think organizations like Making Memories are vitally important to metastatic breast cancer patients who find their finances depleted from cancer treatment and wish to make memories for themselves and their families. I plan to financially support Making Memories somemtime during the coming year. I hope you’ll join me in doing so as well.

  2. I wish that had been around for Lisa, Clusterfook, a few years ago, or that she had heard of the opportunity. Lisa’s dearest wish when she got cancer for the third time was to take her three girls to Disneyland and make that memory. The internet helped her, but there was also a terrible pushback at the time – and it was a time where she didn’t need to deal with all of that. This sounds like a great organization for fufilling those wishes.

    Thank you, Judy, for all your work this month identifying charities. It’s been a really great series!

    I think sometimes people just don’t know what resources are out there which is a shame. Anyways, you’re quite welcome, and thank you for the nice comments. I so appreciate them.
