The Breasties is the first all-inclusive nonprofit organization that creates a community for survivors, previvors, thrivers, and carevivors, impacted by breast and gynecological cancers. This unique organization offers free events, like wellness retreats and informational webinars, trusted resources, such as information about products to use after radiation and ways to support mental wellbeing during treatment, and most importantly a forum that allows individuals from around the world to connect with others going through similar life experiences related to breast and gynecological cancers.
The Shades of Compassion Foundation is honored to provide financial support to the organization’s Sydney Heersink Grant program. This initiative assists community members going through active cancer treatment or preventive treatment, and helps cover the cost of groceries, medical bills, school expenses, etc. These grants are intended to lessen an individual’s financial burden so they can focus more fully on their health and wellbeing.
