Sensational In SurvivalSM is a non-profit organization established to support patients and survivors who have been afflicted by breast cancer. By providing loving guidance, funding, care and knowledge, we help them regain their dignity and self-esteem as well as emotional and physical beauty.
Founded in 2005 by breast cancer survivor, Andrea Caruso, Sensational In SurvivalSM was created by her desire to bring a strong and triumphant face to the fight of this disease. We hope to give anyone in this battle the armor and tools to face the hurdles involved in treatment and, ultimately, recovery, while maintaining their strength and self image, which can be so brutally attacked during this time.
Our management team consists of an executive director working closely with a board of directors and officers toward our goals. Ultimately, the work will be divided among committees and teams assigned according to task necessity. Staff will need to be added at management, committee and team levels and will be decided upon by the executive director and board of directors.
Sensational In SurvivalSM was founded to meet a growing need in those diagnosed with breast cancer. Our goals include connecting service providers with those in need of help in areas such as appliance and car repair, wig and prosthesis needs, utilities and other day to day essentials. Many victims are exactly that - victims - due to a "falling through the cracks" of traditional support, making up the over 40,000 women that die from this disease each year. We intend to help bridge these cracks by creating new avenues to reach those needing assistance. We intend to provide an immediate response to financial concerns on an individual basis. Sensational In SurvivalSM organizes and produces projects such as calendars, and entertainment and social events as a means to raise the money needed to financially help those going through the breast cancer battle. And we have many more fun ideas up our sleeves!We realize that the organization and execution of events, an internet Web site, funding research, education and prevention, and providing financial support to those afflicted is a costly endeavor. We will fund these endeavors by engaging in vigorous fundraising efforts. These efforts will include athletic events, direct fundraising dinners, products, calendars, and receipt of direct donations of money and services.
