GreaterGood.org gave grants to several different organizations in 2011 providing services to women suffering from breast cancer and to those needing medical procedures such as mammograms: Hope For Two, National Breast Cancer Foundation, Patient Access Network Foundation, and the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Each of these nonprofits offers financial support and other help for women and their families so they can cope with the impact of breast cancer.
NBCF funds a nationwide program underwriting free mammogram services at clinics and hospitals. GreaterGood.org grants in 2011 paid for such programs in Montgomery , AL; Trenton, NJ; Oklahoma City, OK; Dalllas, TX; Springfield, VT; Houston, TX; and Charlotte, NC, among others.
The Patient Access Network Foundation and UM Comprehensive Cancer Center used GreaterGood.org 2011 grants to pay for medications, wigs, and other out-of-pocket expenses not covered by patients’ insurance.
Hope For Two and Making Memories helped breast cancer patients and their families better cope with the emotional toll of cancer
In 2011, GreaterGood.org gave more than $3.1 million to 111 charities operating in the United States and worldwide, including many international programs to improve the overall health of women and children.
