Mama Mare Breast Cancer Foundation
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have sadly had to cancel all of our annual fundraising events. As a result, we also have had to cease all support programs for the foreseeable future.
These programs provide support services to breast cancer patients and their families.
Now, more than ever, your donations are much needed to keep our programs active!

Why Breast Cancer Patients & Survivors Need Support
1
High Cost of Treatment
The medical bills one can incur from breast cancer surgeries, treatments, etc. can be an enormous burden and extremely overwhelming—factors that can impair a survivor's full recovery. We want to help provide medical debt relief by providing a grant for nominated survivors who meet the program's qualifications.
2
Emotional Burden
We have partnered with Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, NJ to provide the Mama Mare Breast Cancer Foundation Healing & Education Center, which provides a serene area for patients and their families, a resource center with tablets for easy access to research and a boutique to provide wigs, turbans, prosthesis and other items needed by cancer patients. We are very proud to be raising funds to also provide chemo comfort bags to continue to provide comfort within healing, touching the lives of patients and families and carrying on the kindness and caring that is the legacy of Mary Ellen Pernice.
3
Quality of Life
Besides the grueling treatments, people forget that reminders of the cancer are everywhere. The appointments on the calendar, the scan films on the counter, the phone calls from nurses and insurance companies. We cannot take their cancer away, but we can take a world of pain and despair and give it light and hope. Our programs such as My Happy Place offer breast cancer patients the opportunity to escape the world of cancer and enjoy a real break.
