How we Help
Be Uplifted Inc came into existence as a consequence of two friends walking their own breast cancer journeys.
The impact of the financial costs of the journey of one of the women, a solo mum, prompted the other to organise fundraisers to assist her meet the unplanned and unexpected costs her journey involved. As time progressed, Be Uplifted Inc was formed and its focus is ‘The costs of breast cancer’.
One in three women will be diagnosed with cancer before they reach the age of eighty-five. The highest percentage of those women will suffer breast cancer.
We all know fellow workers, family members or friends who have walked their own breast cancer journey or are facing it even now.
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.
We are Volunteers
Be Uplifted Inc is run by volunteers and has very small overhead expenses. We are supported greatly by our local community in regards to our office space and expenses including printing.
Our funds go back to the families that are on this breast cancer journey.
