Local Metastatic Breast Cancer Research-Support

download (2)

Can you help to save lives? We are seeking donations for metastatic breast cancer research locally. It is exceptional work! All across the United States year in and year out, in every county, women (and some men) are dying of breast cancer. Research money is being spent on treatments. Let’s find the root cause of why breast cancer patients are dying. Just in our county alone 29 women die a year. Multiple this by other counties, and it blows your mind away.

If you can make a donation for this cause, we will send you a tax exempt receipt. We are a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization.

Send checks (any amount) to: Circle of Hope, 5204 Otsego St., Duluth, MN 55804. Put that it is for m. research in the corner. We will send you a tax exempt receipt. If we can use your name or business, let us know.

You can make a donation online at: http://www.circleofhopeduluth.org. Please state that it is for m. research. We will still send you a receipt. Can we use your name or business when we make the donation at the end of October?

Questions: peggy@duluthcircleofhope.org or call 218-464-1624.

11899860_613759352099281_6784398028935818627_n (1)

 

This is the money donated by The Color Dash to Circle of Hope and where it went in 2014. Circle of Hope is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit committed to helping breast cancer patients first. The organization is run by volunteers. They are a grass roots volunteer Board of Directors.There is a chair, vice chair, past chair, treasurer, secretary, and community representatives.  Peggy Anderson is the coordinator of Circle of Hope. http://www.circleofhopeduluth.org

If you have breast cancer and want a feel good box, need help with your breast cancer medical bills or daily living expenses, contact Circle of Hope at: peggy@circleofhopeduluth.org. Area guidelines apply (northern MN/WI). The feel good boxes are for breast and gynecological cancer patients only.

Circle of Hope has many missions. In September and October they are collecting donations for local metastatic breast cancer research. You may donate money to the organization and get a tax exempt receipt. Only 501 (c) 3 organizations can give these receipts. Ask for the tax exempt number.

Circle of Hope has many announcements to make in September and October. Stay tuned for more good works locally.

Sidelines: Circle of Hope Board members did a booth in Art in the Bayfront Park in August. Children made bracelets for themselves, made cards for patients, and loved the booth.

One of the Circle of Hope teams, The Many Faces of Breast Cancer won bronze metals at the dragon boat races. It was their best rowing year ever! Next year it is going to be a Country Western theme for food and for a fall concert! Survivors should contact Peggy.
