TBBCF Introduces “Aimee’s Blog”
On July 6, TBBCF announced a new section on the website entitled, “Aimee’s Blog”, which documents Aimee Reed’s journey living with stage IV/metastatic (inflammatory, triple negative, BRCA2+) breast cancer.
One of the many reasons people decide to write a blog is to build awareness and garner support for a cause or a passion. Some people’s passion and pain lean toward supporting a cause. Aimee’s cause is awareness.
We hope you will follow Aimee’s Blogs. TBBCF has worked for more than 10 years to help find cures for breast cancer for people like Aimee. We started the foundation because our friends and loved ones were diagnosed with breast cancer. We continue today because of friends and strangers alike. Click here for Aimee’s latest blog, Why Me?
Keeping Logan’s Promise
Norma Logan’s promise in establishing this great organization was to direct 100% of gross fundraising dollars to breast cancer research and for the foundation to be financially transparent so that everyone, from sponsors and donors to volunteers and walk participants, could plainly see that the organization was meeting its target.
