A.W.A.R.E. 5K & Fun Run Photos

A.W.A.R.E. helps over 200 patients a year with:

  • hats
  • wigs
  • medications
  • mastectomy products
  • gift cards
  • gas cards
  • grocery cards

Helping also to boost moral, self esteem and sense of worth.

What a patient with cancer said:

“Thank you so much for all you do to make a journey through cancer a little easier. Thank you for the gas, and gift card and for money towards my wig, as well as my bag of goodies. Your group is wonderful for doing all of this. Thank you from a cancer ‘Thriver’.”

“I have received one of your gifts during the most difficult time of my life. I cannot wait to get a hold of my health and join your group events. I never imagined there was support like this.”

“Thank you so much for helping me buy my wig! At times like these, such kindness does ease the burdens of fighting cancer. I am also so proud of all BVRMC does for people, as I see it for the first hand. Thank you so much!”

The money raised is used throughout the year to assist those who are receiving cancer treatments in purchasing wigs, prosthesis, personal cancer recovery items, medical expenses, gas or groceries.
