Embrace Your Sisters, founded in 2006, fills a unique niche of Breast Cancer services in the Finger Lakes area. We provide emergency financial assistance for people going through breast cancer treatment. Even with health care, many expenses are not covered. Help can be for mounting co-pays, travel expenses to get to treatment, mortgage/rent, utilities etc. Our goal is to take some financial burden off of the patient to allow them to focus on recovery.
We are an entirely volunteer board with no paid staff dependent completely on donations from the community. All money raised, stays here in the seven county Finger Lakes area which includes Ontario, Monroe, Livingston, Wayne, Seneca, Steuben, Allegany, Schuyler, Chemung, Tioga, Tompkins, Cayuga and Yates. EYS holds fundraising events throughout the year which are posted on the website EmbraceYourSisters.org, also on our Facebook page. We appreciate each and every person that volunteers and/or donates to us. We have given out over $500,000 in grants since then and the needs continue to grow. Each year requests for assistance becomes more, so does the need for us to raise more money as we don't want to have to turn away anyone.
We focus on: Human Services, Health
Where we are: Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Seneca, Wayne, Yates
