Breast Impressions, Inc.
Our mission is to increase breast cancer awareness and fund raising to support breast cancer education, prevention and treatment. We donate breast casting kits to women who have recently been diagnosed with breast cancer, to make a memory prior to surgery.
RAISING BREAST CANCER AWARENESS THROUGH ART
Judi Grove, was in the insurance industry for over 23 years. In January, 2007 she faced a breast cancer scare. She wanted to make a cast of her breasts in case the diagnosis indicated a mastectomy was necessary. Needing the materials to do this, She contacted Nancy Coryell, owner of Anticipation Ultrasound Studio in Tulsa, OK, who sold "belly casting kits" to pregnant women. When they met they agreed there was a need to raise awareness in their own community and beyond. Together they started Breast Impressions.
Breast Impressions first mission was to offer breast casting kits to women who have been recently diagnosed with breast cancer and would like to make a "memory" of their own breast prior to surgery. Since their inception well over 200 breast casting kits have been sent free of charge to women across the world.
Now Breast Impressions is working with leagues of the Women's Flat Track Roller Derby Association to raise awareness and fund raise for their local breast cancer programs, clinics and support groups in cities across the United States!
Always looking for new ways to reach women and men, Judi welcomes invitations to speak with churches, civic groups, and sports organizations to help save lives through early detection.
