OUR STORY

B the Light is a 501(c)3, started in 2016 in honor of Brenda Plinke, or Aunt “B” (pictured right) as she was known to family and friends.

 

Aunt B battled metastatic breast cancer for 18 years before she passed away in 2018 at the age of 58. She lived by the motto “Never Give Up Hope” and inspired all who knew her.

B the Light seeks to honor Aunt B’s legacy by coordinating ways for survivors to connect with others and with resources of support, in a variety of ways, both during or after treatment.

HOW WE CONNECT SURVIVORS

The physical, emotional, and financial stresses of this diagnosis are devastating. Women who endure chemotherapy and radiation for breast cancer often suffer from anxiety, depression, and PTSD following treatment. In many cases, they have had their identities as women robbed from them.

 

According to the American Psychological Association, “When one member of a family has cancer, the whole family is affected.”

Our current offerings include

Whether a survivor needs social groups or wellness partners, or even family support, your contribution will allow a survivor a variety of support and connection options for they and their family on a healing journey back to feeling whole again.
