Silver Creek: Breast Cancer Partnerships
Silver Creek Makes A Splash by Supporting Breast Cancer Causes
Silver Creek supports the ongoing mission to fight breast cancer by donating 10% of all profits from the sales of its Natural Spring Water brand to breast cancer research and support organizations. Some of these organizations are Y-ME, The Susan G. Komen Foundation and The Breast Cancer Fund (TBCF).
The Y-me National Breast Cancer Organization
Y-me raises money for support and education of cancer patients and survivors. Y-me has chapters all over the country, and has an especially large chapter as well as its headquarters in Chicago. Each year Chicago hosts several fund- and awareness-raising events to benefit the Y-me organization. Silver Creek contributes funds and water to these events, including the Mother’s Day Race and the Annual Fashion Show.
The organization was founded in 1978 by two mastectomy patients, Mimi Kaplan and Ann Marcou, because they felt that the psychosocial needs of women like themselves wre not being met by existing services. Since then, Y-me has become the largest and most comprehensive breast cancer information and support program in the country.
Y-me currently has affiliates in Arizona, California, Connecticut Indiana, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Mexico, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, the District of Columbia, and Wisconsin.
