Show support for local breast cancer patients through our #SmallActs campaign.
How #SmallActs Works?
It’s a Breast Thing #SmallActs campaign serves to brighten a breast cancer patient’s day by using donations to purchase small tokens of kindness and gift cards for patients who visit MSU Breslin Cancer Center, Sparrow Hospital Herbert-Herman Cancer Center, Red Cedar Oncology or McLaren Hospital during the month of October. #SmallActs is a way for organizations, businesses, and individuals to give to It’s a Breast Thing, a local 501c3 charity.
Your SUPPORT is always appreciated as the need for donations in 2020 is greater than ever. There are so many local breast cancer patients in financial need and the grants we award with the money you donate will make a huge difference in our community!
The mission for “Our Year Of Giving” is to reach out to organizations, churches, small groups etc to let everyone know who “It’s a Breast Thing” Non Profit is and that we award grants to local breast cancer patients.
Please help us accomplish our mission by donating today and by reaching out to us with the name of groups that our Outreach Committee could talk to. Thank You for your continued support!
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 are awarded to patients that reside and are receiving treatment in the Mid-Michigan area 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.
