The Tutu Project of the Carey Foundation Shows Heart With $70K Grant to Living Beyond Breast Cancer
The Tutu Project of the Carey Foundation is showing heart in 2020 with a $70,000 grant to the national Living Beyond Breast Cancer Fund. Using money from this generous grant, the national Living Beyond Breast Cancer Fund will provide small grants to over 70 women in treatment for breast cancer.
Your health should be the main concern while in treatment for breast cancer, but the added strain of medical costs and unpaid time away from work can make it difficult to keep up with expenses during treatment. The national Living Beyond Breast Cancer Fund provides one-time grants to women who are undergoing breast cancer treatment and facing financial hardship. These grants help pay for vital expenses, such as mortgage, rent, and utilities, so women can focus on their health.
“Being diagnosed with breast cancer has changed my life completely. Physically, mentally, and especially financially not knowing how I was going to be able to pay my expenses and not being able to work and also not having any kind of income,” Delma, a Living Beyond Breast Cancer Fund recipient, says. “I am truly grateful and thankful from the bottom of my heart for what LBBC did for me. It helped me to have peace of mind.”
The assistance shared by the national Living Beyond Breast Cancer Fund is made possible through the generous support of individuals and organizations such as the Tutu Project of the Carey Foundation. The Tutu Project of the Carey Foundation is a loyal supporter of the national Living Beyond Breast Cancer Fund and has donated more than $180,000 since 2018.
The Living Beyond Breast Cancer Fund is available in Greater Philadelphia and select communities around the country. Learn more about the program and how you too can support grants for women affected by breast cancer at lbbc.org/fund.
