About Brides Against Breast Cancer
Brides Against Breast Cancer contributes to programs for cancer patients, their families and caregivers. Our outreach and educational efforts during our “Nationwide Tour of Gowns” bridal shows around the country help ensure that people impacted by cancer have the resources and information they need in their battle with cancer.
Brides Against Breast Cancer is a wholly owned affiliate of the Health Support Network, headquartered in Sarasota, FL. Health Suport Network offers free information, programs and services to cancer patients, caregivers and family members, while connecting them with others who are undergoing a similar experience.
The revenue generated by Brides Against Breast Cancer makes it possible to deliver free information and services to thousands of children and adults impacted by cancer – both on Florida’s Suncoast as well as across the country. Brides Against Breast Cancer will contribute $2 million dollars to help people impacted by cancer this year.
Our goal in the coming year is to make free Health Support Network programs and services available to anyone, anywhere through a nationwide online network called the Health Support Network Online. Health Support Network is in the process of producing more than 150 cancer related online programs annually. These online programs will include exercise, nutrition, meditation, education and caregiver support. The program content is supported by evidence based scientific research. Health Support Network has the expertise, experience and leadership positioned to deliver unmatched video content to an online network of affiliates.
To help achieve the goals of Health Support Network, Brides Against Breast Cancer has implemented the “I DO” campaign, led by our national ambassador Singer/Songwriter Margo Rey, a breast cancer survivor, and her husband, Comedian Ron White. Click here for “I DO” campaign details.
Our more than 150 yearly bridal shows provide brides-to-be with an opportunity to find their dream gown at an incredible savings, while contributing to services that provide education, information and outreach to men, women and children affected by cancer. Show sales include hundreds of new, name brand and designer gowns, as well as lovingly worn gowns in various styles and sizes, and we offer a convenient layaway plan. Most gown prices range from $99 to $799 with designers gowns valued up to $3,900. If you have already said "I Do," please consider donating your gown to Brides Against Breast Cancer, and your donation is tax deductible.
The worldwide support of designers, manufacturers, bridal shops and individual donations make possible our Nationwide Tour of Gowns sales. More than half the gowns presented during each event are new designer gowns that arrive directly from designers, manufacturers and bridal retailers.
