Mission of "It's a Breast Thing"

Is to enrich the lives of local breast cancer patients on their journey to better health. We do this through:

  • grants to residents of Clinton, Eaton, Ingham & Shiawassee counties or those living outside the 4 county area but receiving their treatment in the named counties who have unmet needs related to their breast cancer treatment;

  • a fundraising "Event" showcasing the latest information on breast health, breast cancer prevention and treatment;

  • a themed bra decorating contest at the event;

  • a calendar with the contest winning bras modeled by local breast cancer survivors;

  • establishing a partnership with local providers and supporters of those in treatment for breast cancer.

It's a Breast Thing Non Profit Corporation is a collaborative effort of Suzi Wyman & Barb McKessy, and Dr. LaKeeya Tucker of Alliance OB/GYN who are committed to helping women with breast cancer in our local communities.
