GOD'S LOVE WE DELIVER RECEIVES $25,000 GRANT FROM PFIZER AND THE AVON FOUNDATION FOR WOMEN TO SUPPORT PATIENTS LIVING WITH METASTATIC BREAST CANCER

 

-- God's Love is One of 23 Organizations Nationwide to Receive Funding; Grant Focuses on Enhancing Patient Support and Efforts to Increase Public Understanding of the Disease --


 God's Love We Deliver is proud to announce that it has been chosen as one of 23 grant recipients for the Avon-Pfizer Metastatic Breast Cancer Grants Program: Identify-Amplify-Unify. The program, run by the Pfizer Inc. and the Avon Foundation for Women, granted a total of $1 million to 23 organizations nationwide to support and educate more than 5,000 metastatic breast cancer patients, their caregivers, and their communities. 

 

God's Love received $25,000 for our Breast Cancer Program to support our work providing 20,000 nutritious meals to 75 metastatic breast cancer (MBC) patients, their children and their senior caregivers this year. With this grant, God's Love will expand weekly meal service from 10 meals a week to 21 meals per week, so that MBC clients will receive meals to cover all 7 days of the week. God's Love will target enrollment of metastatic breast cancer clients from the most marginalized communities through outreach activities, including community presentations, networking meetings, health fairs, and community events.

 

"God's Love We Deliver is honored to be partners with the Avon Foundation and Pfizer," said God's Love President and CEO Karen Pearl. "With this year's generous grant, we will be able to provide people living with metastatic breast cancer as well as their children and senior caregivers with the nourishment they require to get through difficult treatments and regain their strength. We will also be able to provide them with the nutrition counseling and education resources they need to achieve optimal health while living with this severe illness."

 

Metastatic breast cancer is the most advanced stage of breast cancer and occurs when cancer spreads beyond the breast to other parts of the body, including the bones, lungs, liver and brain. Nearly three in 10 women who have had early breast cancer will eventually develop metastatic disease. There are no cures currently available, and continuous treatment is needed to control the spread of the disease and its symptoms.   

 

"To date, the majority of public attention on and funding for breast cancer has centered on early-stage disease such as screening strategies and survivorship  not on late-stage diagnosis. As a result, the Avon-Pfizer Metastatic Grants Program was established to address the gaps in support available to women and men living with metastatic disease, and to create  new services  for metastatic patients so they do not have to face this disease alone," said Marc Hurlbert, executive director of the Avon Foundation for Women Breast Cancer Crusade.  "Our hope is that one day all patients can access the unique care and support services they need, regardless of their ability to pay."

 

The Avon-Pfizer Metastatic Breast Cancer Grants Program was created in June 2014 to support advocacy, academic and other nonprofit organizations that provide information and services to help people with metastatic breast cancer navigate the medical and emotional challenges associated with their disease.

 

"Pfizer is proud to join the Avon Foundation in supporting these 23 important projects and the organizations driving them," said Maya Martinez-Davis, regional president, North America, Pfizer Oncology.  "With the public breast cancer conversation focused primarily on early breast cancer, there is a need to foster greater understanding of metastatic disease and increased support for metastatic patients and their caregivers.  Our hope is that the projects being funded by the Avon-Pfizer Metastatic Breast Cancer Grants Program will make a meaningful difference to the metastatic breast cancer community."
