Be Uplifted Inc is a local Brisbane charity focused on giving ensuring patients with breast cancer receive the assistance and support necessary to survive the breast cancer journey.
Our Brisbane charity is dedicated to supporting men, women and their families on a breast cancer journey in both practical and financial ways.
We are continually fundraising for our charitable efforts, and use our breast cancer support fund to assist local men and women seriously ill with breast cancer and their families with their costly medical and household expenses.
However more funds are urgently needed to help reduce the impact of beast cancer.
With 17,730 women and 144 men diagnosed with breast cancer in 2017, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia. Alarmingly, 3,087 Australians will die from the disease in 2017.
What we do with your donations
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 and you can help us.
All the donations Be Uplifted Inc receives go directly to making a difference in the lives of local Brisbane breast cancer patients.
We use every single donation to support local breast cancer patients to improve their day-to-day lives, for example:
- Paying for practical living essentials like medications, medical tests, food, electricity and phone bills
- Offering support services to breast cancer patients and their families including bereavement counselling and child trauma counselling
- Providing household basics
- Assisting families to be in touch and supportive even if it’s from a long distance.
While we never turn down patient request, fund are always required to help our charity with the growing demand for our services, and to ensure that we are meeting our goal of ensure that those receiving treatment for breast cancer and their families don’t suffer any more than they have to.
Your Donation Matters
Our local charity supports the maximum amount of patients our fundraising activities allow us to. As a non-profit organisation, we rely on our enthusiastic team of volunteers for fundraising via our events, breast cancer donation boxes at local shops and eateries, our breast cancer online shop plus our op shops.
However without the generous donations we receive from members of the public, we would be unable to help as many local breast cancer patients that are referred to our service.
Your kind donation will be gratefully received by Be Uplifted Inc and immediately directed by us for use on patient services.
