About Be Uplifted

Be Uplifted Inc is a unique breast cancer charity that seeks to improve the lives of women and their families experiencing difficulty or disadvantage as a consequence of breast cancer. We provide funds enabling them to access services and programs, pay bills, and receive goods or assistance to alleviate that difficulty or disadvantage.

Be Uplifted foundersTwo friends both suffered breast cancer together. For one, the cancer required a lumpectomy and for the other, a solo Mum, a double mastectomy. For the solo Mum, who was unable to work and faced financial costs well beyond her means, her friend rallied to organise fundraisers to assist her meet these unexpected costs. Both women survived their breast cancer fight, both felt they had been given a second chance at life; both wanted to apply their energies to assist other women and their families embarking on the same journey. So, in 2009 they registered the charity  Be Uplifted Inc.

 

 

Be Uplifted Inc Charity is made up of wonderful volunteers

A group of about 30 volunteers dedicate themselves to fundraising, applying for grants, soliciting donations  and doing whatever it takes to accrue monies into their gift account (uniquely named “Gallant Gals Gift Fund”) to assist others meet the costs of their breast cancer. They operate predominantly on the north side of Brisbane, never turning away an applicant, limited only by the funds they currently have available. Every December, they contact the oncology wards of partner hospitals, obtain the numbers of current breast cancer chemo patients and purchase, pack and deliver Christmas hampers to those wards for staff to distribute.

People not Research!

In recent years, there have been a number of charities formed connected to breast cancer and many companies contribute to their nation-wide appeals. However the majority of these groups focus on research or patient care with minimal assistance being given towards the ‘costs’ encountered. For the last four years, we have busied ourselves fundraising and increasing our network of contacts and each year have doubled the amount of money raised and more than doubled the number of persons we have been able to assist.
