This is the Breast Friends Forever of Champaign County’s annual fundraiser to provide help for anyone who resides or works in Champaign County who has medical breast-related issues.
This year the organization has paid over $13,000 in medical bills for several individuals in the county who are going through cancer treatment. Additionally, the organization has given over $4,000 in blessings checks, numerous comfort bags and $700 in gas cards to encourage, educate and support individuals in their time of need – all made possible by the funds raised by the organization. The more money raised, the more people who can be helped.
