Because She’s A Lady is a 501 c 3, non-profit organization dedicated to “addressing the special needs of breast cancer survivors and others who may need extended mammary support and are uninsured or cannot afford such items.”
The founders, Mariam Searcy and Kelly Freeman are certified fitters and owners of the All About Women’s Health Boutique of Farmington, MI and will proudly launch the newly formed non-profit organization on Sunday, September 24, 2017 at the S.O.U.L House, 32905 Grand River, Farmington, MI 48336, 2 pm-6 pm. The festivities will include performances by the Livonia Youth Symphony Horn Choir and the Livonia Symphony Brass Quintet.
Currently, “Because She’s A Lady” has two programs. In addition to the program that provides mastectomy needs to breast cancer survivors who are without means to acquire such items, the non-profit is also gearing up to outfit young ladies (ages 12-18) who are actively engaged in organized sports, with quality, supportive sports bras.
“The purpose of the Launch Party is to acquaint the community with the services provided by our “Because She’s A Lady’, non-profit and to raise funds to further our endeavors,” said Searcy, one of the program’s founders. Freeman added “Still, today, there are women who cannot afford mastectomy needs and for young active ladies, wearing a properly fitted and supportive sports bra could prevent discomfort and possible injury.”
An external breast prosthesis costs about $400.00. The average cost for a mastectomy bra is about $70.00. Quality sports bras cost an average of $70.00. Donations can be made at https://becauseshesalady.org/donate/.
Checks should be mailed to “Because She’s A Lady”, 33104 Grand River, Farmington, MI. The office of the non-profit is located within the All About Women’s Health Boutique.
Donations are tax deductible.
