Breast Friends Forever of Champaign County donated a check of $427.50 to the Breast Cancer Endowment Fund, which will provide camisoles to Champaign County women after breast cancer surgery. The group’s January fundraiser Sip-n-dippity raised half of the funds and the group matched the money raised.

The group will host the 19th annual Fashion to a Tea on Oct. 13 to honor and remember all who have had breast cancer. The theme this year is “Breast Cancer: Through the Years.” Attendees will learn how breast cancer detection, prevention and treatment have changed through the years. A speaker from Springfield Imaging will discuss new ways to detect, as well as what is coming in the future.

Tickets cost $12 and will be on sale in September at Perpetual Savings Bank, the Champaign Family YMCA and Mercy Memorial Hospital in Urbana; Gentle Care Health Center in Mechanicsburg; First Central Saving Bank in St. Pairs; and online at https://fashiontoatea2016.eventbrite.com.

The Breast Friends mission statement is “To educate, empower, encourage, and embrace all who are at risk for breast cancer.”
