The Connie J. Goodale Breast Cancer Foundation is unique South Florida organization whose mission is to raise money to assist women suffering from breast cancer who cannot afford medical treatments and other expenses. We seek to lighten the burden of breast cancer on these women and their families.
We are immensely grateful to our sponsors and supporters who have made and continue to make our mission possible. We invite you to read on to learn about exciting events, updates and how you can help The Connie Foundation help local survivors in your area! Individuals wishing to receive assistance are encouraged to submit an application.In 1999, friends of Connie created the Foundation in her honor. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in the 1995, at the age of 41. The cancer spread to her bones and she had a bone marrow transplant in 1997 at Duke University. She passed away on August 12, 2001, leaving her husband and two daughters. During her life, Connie’s friendly and genuine demeanor had a profound effect on everyone she met. At Connie’s suggestion, the Connie J. Goodale Cancer Foundation’s goals are to assist local families affected by breast cancer and in dealing with problems relating to this disease. We provide financial assistance to breast cancer patients for certain expenses. We are the only foundation in the South Florida area that gives direct aid to local breast cancer patients in Palm Beach County. The Foundation has raised over $160,000 that has been donated to local women with breast cancer.
Here is the difference the Connie Foundation has made for just one recent breast cancer survivor: "Words cannot express just how grateful I am for the support of the Connie Foundation. You have brought me and my family a peace of mind that is beyond words. The burden of having medical bills and trying to keep up with the cost of life in general is almost as devastating as the cancer diagnosis. I commend your Foundation on what you do and are all about. May God bless each one of you and lead you to the so many more people in need.
