Offsetting housecleaning costs for those in recovery
Assisting with the purchase of wigs and mastectomy bras
Offsetting the expense of costly medications
Sponsoring families in crisis
Paying for mammograms to those who canít otherwise afford them.
In our 2014-2015 fiscal year, The Keeping Abreast Foundation provided approximately $35,000 in funding for almost 250 screening and diagnostic services, and approximately $4,700 to those needing assistance for other breast cancer-related expenses. These services were provided in Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa and Walton Counties.
