A Mom With Stage IV Breast Cancer

Ann is the single mother of two children; her son has cerebral palsy. When she was diagnosed with cancer, Ann didn't even have health insurance — but she's been a fighter from day one.

Be A Fighter

My fight started in the fall of 2013. My sister passed away last year from breast cancer, and I had promised her I'd start taking better care of my health. One evening when I reached up to itch an area on my left breast, I found a lump. I was only 47, and I still had never had my first mammogram...

Speak Out for Men with Breast Cancer

Male breast cancer, although less common, is no different than female breast cancer in terms of prognosis, treatment, and the emotional effects. There is no scientific basis in refusing a man coverage simply because he is a man — yet some insurance companies are.

Angela's Corner: To Tattoo Or Not

Angela's Corner: To Tattoo Or Not

I have seen some amazing pieces of art through my lifetime. Many have hung in art galleries while others are worn on a daily basis. I have often been in awe of those hanging in the galleries. The amount of time and skill it takes to paint a portrait or landscape shocks me every time. The details that are put into a sculpture could be seen as extremely accurate. Or you have those abstract pieces that take a lot of imagination and creativity. The same could be said for the art that a person wears on their body. It's still art, just a different canvas and medium.

People are expressing their love for art more often. My sister was the first of our family to get a tattoo on a trip to Vegas. It's a gorgeous tattoo and I enjoy looking at is as well. She took all the courage she had to do that in her twenties. I admire her bravery, but I just couldn't bring myself to be willing to do such a drastic thing.

There is a lot of worry for me that go into a tattoo. How painful will it be sticking a needle in your skin for hours on end? What happens if I don't like it or the tattoo artist was not as skilled as I thought they would be? This would be on my body for life. Could I stand to see it on a daily basis? Oh, the worry I put myself through...

OUR FAVORITE PROJECTS
Mammograms for Women in Need
Mammograms are one of the best methods to catch breast cancer before it's too late. In fact, if the disease is caught early enough, the five-year survival rate is 96%. But many women in the United States lack health insurance that covers the full cost of mammograms, and cannot afford to pay for them out-of-pocket. Donations through this Gift That Gives More™ help fund free mammograms for low-income, uninsured, and working women. Thank you!

Help close the healthcare gap by bringing early detection to those who cannot afford it.
