What is breast cancer?Breast cancer is a malignant tumor that starts in the cells of the breast. A malignant tumor is a group of cancer cells that can grow into (invade) surrounding tissues or spread (metastasize) to distant areas of the body. The disease occurs almost entirely in women, but men can get it, too
As of February 2008, the Pink SOCS Foundation Inc. officially became a 501(c)(3) public charity, but we started raising money for cancer several years earlier. In 2005, a small group of us raised our first dollars as part of the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. It began as an attempt to actively fight back. At that point, 4 of our 9 sisters had already received a cancer diagnosis. Our family is large, with 34 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren, and ever expanding. To date, we have experienced the despair of relapse - more than once, as well as the sadness of loss when our father and sisters succumbed to the disease.Throughout our journey, we’ve had the good fortune to be able to count on our family for support, but we also had the sad realization that cancer is a significant financial burden – even for those of us that are insured. It is our hope that the Pink SOCS Foundation Inc. will be able to assist those families who are in need of financial support as a result of any type of cancer, because we know first hand that diagnosis is stressful enough, without the added concern of monetary resources.“Our mission is to improve the lives of families in our communities that have been affected by breast cancer and also all other forms of cancer. We raise money by holding charity functions, and directlydonating these funds to families in need that have been affected by cancer. Donations are also given as scholarships to children who have family members affected by cancer.”With your support, no matter how small or how large we can accomplish our mission.
