C.A.R.E. needs a medical mobile bus to save more women!

Elizabeth - Nurse, animal rescuer, and survivor!

My name is Elizabeth McCarthy a stage 3 ovarian cancer survivor. In 2006 I went for my regular check up to only find out within a few days I would need a radical hysterectomy. I had a 12.7lb tumor on my left ovary. A single exam saved my life.

The first day I started my chemo treatments I knew I had to make a difference.

So I founded a grassroots 501c(3) organization called Cancer Awareness & Reproductive Education (C.A.R.E.) in 2006 to raise money for women who cannot afford yearly pelvic exams and to provide a support network for women who are going through chemo and radiation therapies. The network is there to teach women about the foods, makeup and daily products they can no longer use while going through treatments and to provide the newly diagnosed with mentors who are survivors. These were the keys to my survival and I want to help others with the support and education they will need to make it.

Through charity events, C.A.R.E. has been able to raise funds to provide exams for many here in the greater Orlando area. In the Central Florida area alone we’ve helped 1,217 women with exams (2011-2012).

In 2013 our goal is to raise funds for a mobile medical bus to go into low income communities to provide yearly exams. The money raised through this campaign will help us purchase a used mobile medical bus, fuel, insurance and storage cost for a year. We project with this mobile medical bus we could service hundreds more in 2013. Our past experience has shown that the greatest barrier to these life saving exams is transportation. Therefore we plan to bring the services to those who need it most.

Any donation is welcomed. There are certain amounts that we will provide “perks” for your contribution but those are optional.

Thank you and please share with others! Elizabeth
