2018 has already been a huge year for Be Uplifted Inc.
As you know, Be Uplifted Inc is a breast cancer charity that focuses on patients not research.
Our breast cancer charity continues to help more breast cancer patients than ever before, and we have expanded our support services to the following Brisbane hospitals:
Holy Spirit Hospital Northside
North West Private Hospital
Northlakes Day Hospital
Prince Charles Hospital
With expanded services comes increased demand from breast cancer patients and greater responsibility. And because of our pledge to never turn a breast cancer patient away, our charity is faced with growing costs.
The needs of local breast cancer patients can vary greatly:
For some, receiving one of our purpose-made drain bags to use post-surgery is sufficient.
For others, continual emotional support is what they need most. A chat every so often, perhaps some shared advice about the breast cancer treatment experience or some valuable tips and information about their rights when dealing with the health care system, or where to go to get particular items that make dealing with day-to-day of breast cancer more bearable.
And for others, they may need a combination of the above, plus some sort of financial assistance. Particularly for younger breast cancer patients with school-aged children or those working casually who are now without a source of income, paying for the costs associated with treatment can mean foregone essentials at home.
It is in these way that Be Uplifted Inc is committed to supporting local breast cancer patients in both a practical and financial ways.
You can help breast cancer patients feel that they matter
All donations Be Uplifted Inc go directly to making a difference in the lives of local Brisbane breast cancer patients. For examples, we help pay for things that are very practical like 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.
And with our breast cancer charity staffed by volunteers, you can be assured your donation will not be spent on unnecessary administrative expenses.
