Beautiful Bras Fundraiser Raises $7,500
Thanks to your votes and the creativity of local businesses and individuals, the Simmons Cancer Institute is receiving a donation of $7,500 from BJ Grand Salon and Spa.
The salon's fifth annual Beautiful Bras fundraiser is hailed a success. Bras that received the most votes were also awarded a prize.
The funds will stay right here in central Illinois, and go toward the Look Good, Feel Better program.
"It will also allow us to do some additional things for them," Simmons Cancer Institute Executive Director Dr. Tom Robbins said. "For example, we are planning on having nutritional education for them, and that's particularly important for cancer patients to have the right nutritional information as they go through their treatment."
The Look Good, Feel Better program helps boost the self-esteem and quality of life of those going through cancer treatment.
