Donate

While many of us are privileged enough to have access to information and resources about genetic testing and preventative surgeries, there is a huge section of the general population without the means to pay for these expensive procedures - or even access to this information. Here are a few quality places to donate, improving the lives of women and families across the nation:


The Martha Haley Fund

Martha Haley is a three-time breast cancer survivor currently fighting metastatic disease, and more recently Diabetes, without health insurance. She runs a support group for low-income African American women, and tirelessly answers the calls of newly diagnosed women. Martha and LeaLea (her now 25 year old daughter) work endlessly to help their community and support their family. This summer, they went months without gas or electricity as they could not pay for those bills and Martha's medications simultaneously. Martha is a poet and a warrior and she needs our help.

Linda Pedraza Memorial Scholarship Fund

National Gene Test Fund

The National Gene Test Fund provides a resource to encourage discussion, action and funding of genetic testing for those people who are at high risk for genetically transmitted diseases and are willing to take preventative measures, but cannot afford the prohibitive costs of such testing. The National Gene Test Fund is a non-profit, 501©(3) organization.
