About

Lynda and Dave CharlesWhat inspired the event?

In 1989, Joyce Wetter lost her fight against breast cancer.  Despite months of treatment, surgeries and determination, this horrific disease took her at an early age of just 49. To this day, I clearly remember her fighting battle, her will to live and also the financial means necessary to get her the help she required. When you see someone suffer greatly from a disease, then hold their hand as they pass on, it is life changing. My mother is the real light that leads my path in the journey to help other women.

In March of 2009, our sister was diagnosed with breast cancer. As a single woman, who had just started a new job, her treatments made her so weak and ill she could not work. She didn’t have income, and then, didn’t have insurance.  Despite the progression of her cancer, there was hope she would survive the disease. But how could she survive without financial help? Within weeks of our sisters diagnosis, our assistant at our office was also diagnosed. So Help The Fight began.

Mission Statement

Help The Fight is a non-profit organization that provides supportive funding for those diagnosed with breast cancer. We call this gap funding, which helps patients with bills such as personal/household bills, medical treatment bills, daycare, insurance payments and much more. Help The Fight prides itself on helping the people. Financial assistance is also available for those needing the necessary screening process for early detection, as early detection is the key to the survival of breast cancer. Help The Fight is a 501(c)(3) organization, EIN#27-0729960.

We’re Here to Help

We have recently released our 2013 funding request form! Funding from Help The Fight is for anyone currently receiving breast cancer treatment, and for those needing the necessary screening process to detect breast cancer. Funding recipients will receive phone acknowledgement after their form is received by Help The Fight, and funds can typically be expected within two weeks. More details can be obtained by calling Lynda at (717) 371-3299.
