Mommy Has Breast Cancer
Founded by a group of young breast-cancer survivors, Mommy Has Breast Cancer devotes itself to the assistance of mothers and families affected by the disease. They recognize the struggle of battling breast cancer while raising a family, which often leaves women having to choose between focusing on caring for themselves or their children. To help lighten the burden, the organization assists women and their families with childcare, housekeeping, age-appropriate education materials for the family, transportation to treatments, and healthy prepared-meal delivery.
