The aim of the Children Education Fund is to ensure that children orphaned by Breast cancer have access to education.
Many of our breast cancer patients are single parents who are abandoned by their spouses after their diagnosis. Many of them are mothers of young children and the patients find themselves with the heavy responsibility of supporting their family and their treatment expenses. What is most heartbreaking is when these mothers die and leave children to fend for themselves. BCIEA and survivors have established an education fund that will fund raise for school fees and school supplies of children who lose their mothers to breast cancer. We currently have 9 young children under 12 years of age who need this support.
One of our Survivors has gracoiusly chosen to support two siblings and we are immensely grateful.
Nothing can compare to the fear experienced when sitting in the doctor’s office and hearing the word cancer.
