ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
Breast Cancer, Financial Assistance, Non-profit
In 1999 Faye Dietiker was diagnosed with Stage IV Breast cancer, her world was turned upside down emotionally and physically. however as she sat in the chemo room with other women she realized that there were women in the room with limited monetary resources and were often forced to choose between paying rent, feeding their children, or receiving treatment. She shared the story with friends and family and a they all decided to act. Each person started donating $20.00 a month , this would enable a family not to have to make a choice. This was how Breast Cancer Angels was formed and today there are over 300 Angels who contribute on a monthly basis.
Each year we see a growing number of donations from the corporate community and individuals who donate directly. . Their tremendous gratitude is visible in their expressions and letters, and we see tangible results with how much a little financial help can ease their everyday life during their fight with breast cancer and give them hope. . We are proud to say that for over 22 years, we have been able to support more than 800 woman each year in Southern California. The need continues to grow, but we wouldn’t be where we are today if it weren’t for angels such as yourselves. Please sign up to be an Angel today. Go to BreastCancerAngels.org Donate Now.
