October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

We have developed some beautiful breast cancer awareness leggings to support survivors, previvors, and their loved ones.   In honor of Breast Cancer Month we are featuring Anne Neustadter and the Shirley Mae Fund.  We will be donating a percentage of every sale of a breast cancer legging this month to the Fund.  Please read Anne's story below...

 

October is breast cancer awareness month and everyone has a story --- including me.  The Shirley Mae Breast Cancer Assistance Fund is a charity that my brother, Roy Goldberg, started in 2000 in honor of our mother who is now a 16 year survivor. I have been working with the fund for 16 years, helping patients who are uninsured or underinsured with medications, prostheses, and other items to help them focus on healing.  I've always had tons of empathy for those going through breast cancer treatment, but it is really different when you are faced with it first hand. In 2014 on my birthday weekend I was told that I had breast cancer. We have it all over my family (oddly mostly on my father’s side not my mother’s) so I was on a track to be watched.  I had an MRI and the doctors saw a change from previous MRIs.  My mammograms have always been negative, but this time the MRI showed something very small that they wanted to watch. I do not come from the watching philosophy, so I went for a biopsy and lucky me it was cancer.  It was always my feeling that if anything was to show up I wouldn't hesitate to remove my breasts.  So 2 weeks later I had a double mastectomy and now I am a 1 year survivor!  I am fortunate that I had insurance, a vigilant medical team, and an amazing support system through family and friends.  I have seen the financial burdens fighting cancer can cause, and the Shirley Mae Fund is there for those who may not have such support.
