Who We Are and What We Do...
CURE MOMMY's BREAST CANCER is a non-profit charitable organization, formed in 2000 shortly after our founder; Carmela Short was diagnosed with the disease.
Our sole purpose is to provide financial assistance, moral support, and educational information to any man, woman or child in need of assistance while suffering the burdens of this disease as well as other forms of cancer.
Since the forming of Cure Mommy’s Breast Cancer, we have raised over $500,000. Since we are strictly run by volunteers, approximately 98˘ of every dollar we raise directly helps someone in need.
Some examples of how we have helped:
Paid Medical Insurance Premiums
Paid rent & utility bills of a patient unable to work during her treatment
Paid for a special bed for patient with cancer of the spine
Paid for home cleaning services for a cancer patient
Paid for transportation costs to special school for sick child
