Breast Cancer Resources
Help Us to Help Others
So many ways to support us
Our motto “People not Research” reflects Be Uplifted Inc’s values of supporting the women, men and their families who have had their world turned upside down a breast cancer diagnosis.
To meet the growing demand we have expanded our patient support services to include six local hospitals in Brisbane.
If you would like to offer a helping hand, there are so many ways to support us.
Free Crocheted Knockers Pattern
Be Uplifted Inc volunteers create free crocheted breast prostheses in a cup sizes A to DD.
Our Crotched Knockers are a soft and lightweight alternative to silicone prosthesis. They may be used as temporary prostheses while scars are healing or permanently by women who opt not to undergo breast reconstruction and cannot afford expensive permanent silicone prostheses.
Our motto “People not Research” reflects our charities’ values. All donations Be Uplifted Inc receives go directly to making a difference in the lives of local Brisbane breast cancer patients.
Our nonprofit charity organisation is staffed by volunteers. We use every donation to help pay for practical and essential support services breast cancer patients need during treatment including medications, medical tests, food, electricity and phone bills, so that families can still be in touch and supportive even if it’s from a long distance.
What people say about Be Uplifted Inc
Thank you Be Uplifted. You have helped my life changing journey with the offer to pay bills when times were tight, food parcels and simple contact and comfort in tough times.
My lovely daughter in law passed away from breast cancer. I would never had dreamt creating beautiful pink ribbons for Be Uplifted and that this would be my way to contribute to raising money for breast cancer.
“Many, many thanks for the wonderful comfort basket that Peggy delivered to me this morning. These very many thoughtful and carefully selected and/or sewn with love items, as well as the large home sewn quilt were received with so much gratitude and heart felt love. Obviously organised by some ladies who have been on their own journey, and come out the other side. Words of appreciation seem inadequate. But thanks to all volunteers at Be Uplifted”.
My stage IV breast cancer diagnosis aged 50 was the shock start of a treatment adventure, setting off an array of emotions and uncertainties for my young daughter and I. After inital chemotherapy, I connected with Wendy and the wonderful team at Be Uplifted and have been well supported by them in both financial and practical ways for years. From enabling valuable counselling sessions and arranging hampers to organising regulars group art and zen movement classes to connect with other patients, the team at Be Uplifted care for us in so many thoughtful ways. We are very grateful to the volunteers for their op shop work, handmade quilts, bags and crafts.
I was taken back by your generous heart, I was certainly not expecting such gifts. The words thank you do not seem worthy enough. I see the heart in every item packed with such love and thoughtfulness.
There are not enough words to say thank you. I received both financial and emotional support of which I am totally amazed. I highly recommend this charity to anyone suffering breast cancer.
A HUGE THANK YOU TO BE UPLIFTED.
I will never forget the day Wendy from Be Uplifted knocked on my door. I had just lost my husband who was the only person in my world, I was so alone. Wendy worked her magic and made everything right again. I do my best to manage myself, but its nice to know you have someone if you really need it. Be Uplifted has helped me financially, socially, mentally. I’m no longer alone. I have met lots of lovely friendly people. I am so Grateful.
“ I’m so sorry- I have been meaning to write to you to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude for what you and your charity have done. Wendy I am so blown away it has taken some time to process. I understand that I am far from the only woman going through this or has gone through it. I guess I’m stubborn and private and am choosing not to seek out groups for support. But I’m strong. I have support if I choose. Knowing you are there should I choose means so much. Thank you.”
Be Uplifted Inc needs our continued support. They really do look after the person and help fill the gaps that many other services miss and for that I am truly and forever grateful.
“Thank you so much Wendy for all of your care and kindness. You offer an incredible service and it honestly makes such a difference to our patients”.
My sister rang me to say she received your beautiful care basket - it was a wonderful surprise for her. It was so nice to hear the happiness and excitement in her voice. Your charity is the first to help and is appreciated more than you know.
Be Uplifted helped me a lot during my cancer journey. Wendy, the Founder of Be Uplifted, has always been there to support me during this difficult time. I received free counseling sessions, attended free art and yoga classes, and have been assisted financially. During these classes, I have made new friendships with the other ladies going through Breast cancer. It has been a massive reassurance to know that there is help available for you when needed. I am very grateful for all the assistance that I have received from Be Uplifted. Thank you very much Wendy and all the volunteers from Be Uplifted. I really appreciate all your help!"
To all the wonderful ladies at Be Uplifted. Thank you for the pillows and drain bags I received in the mail. I am so very grateful for your generosity
