October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
October 3, 2015

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I have to first say that I have been truly blessed that my family and I have never been impacted by this horrific disease. But over the years I have met brides and their families who have suffered pain and loss and their stories and grief and resilience have touched my heart. Since I started by business in 2005, a charity that has always been near and dear to my heart is Brides Against Breast Cancer.

Brides Against Breast Cancer is an annual charity wedding gown tour that goes “on the road” to approximately 40 cities per year with truckloads of discounted wedding gowns for sale.  BABC events give local brides-to-be the opportunity to find their dream gowns while making wishes come true for stage IV breast cancer patients.

 

Headquartered in Portland, OR, Making Memories Breast Cancer Foundation™ is a non-profit organization dedicated to granting wishes, including memory-making events, for stage IV breast cancer patients, while continuing to support, educate and increase awareness of breast cancer.  

Each year, Making Memories receives thousands of wedding gowns from various manufacturers, designers, retailers and individuals for the Brides Against Breast Cancer™ Nationwide Tour of Gowns, making it the organization’s primary fundraising activity.  Gown prices range from $99 and up, including hundreds of brand name and designer gowns, some valued up to $8,000.  Tiaras, veils, crinolines and other accessories will also be offered. Bridal gown donations will also be accepted for gowns 2006 and newer.
