Get In The Ring!
The BarbaraCares Foundation is proud to announce the 2019 “Care2Fight” Health & Wellness Fair! This FREE one day fair will highlight local and state businesses and organizations that are committed to helping the community achieve a better quality of life. We are pleased to have a number of partners and sponsors that have teamed up with BarbaraCares to provide life changing screenings at the event to help saves lives.
The event will be during October to commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness Month; Texas Health will be onsite providing free mammograms to those that preregister. There will also be a host of other agencies available to provide valuable information to individuals wanting to get fit, remain healthy and learn ways to combat disease.
To bring the theme to life, we are excited to have a life-sized boxing ring at the facility available for all attendees to step in the ring for their own chance to literally knock out cancer! No boxing experience is necessary but we do ask that you bring your best swing to punch cancer once and for all!
The BarbaraCares Foundation serves to assist breast cancer patients and their families here in Texas. Our purpose: Address, educate, coordinate and provide aid and relief for breast cancer patients and their families as they journey the road toward complete and total healing. We focus on the next step(s) because giving up should never be an option!
How We Help!
We provide supplemental resources to those that qualify; including direct funding to patients in active treatment and grants for caretakers. We host free educational seminars, provide risk pamphlets and accountability groups for support. In addition, BarbaraCares provides access to state resources available. It’s our hope to alleviate some of the burdens often tied to a diagnosis. Counseling services are provided to those in need and we partner to supplement the costs to make sure patients have access to proper nutrition. BarbaraCares raises awareness by engaging the community; making others aware about our cause and the impact cancer has not only on the person affected but their family as well.
How You Help!
We are not able to do this alone. To maximize our impact, we strategically partner with local and state organizations to better serve the vast communities in Texas. We also seek individual donors like you to give so the foundation is able to meet the needs of those in dire need of assistance. There is life still to lived despite cancer and your financial support ensures BarbaraCares is able to reach those seeking our help.
