About StringsforaCURE


Life is about chapters and we will be entering a new chapter for the StringsforaCURE® Foundation.

For the past 9 3/4 years, the StringsforaCURE Foundation has helped over 2,068 breast cancer patients, distributing over $462,150 to these patients through our programs. In August 2020, after we celebrate 10 years of serving the breast cancer community, it is with a heavy heart that our founder Elisa Guida, along with StringsforaCURE board members, Patti Larson, Brenda Berchtold and Donna Rose Sherrange, have made the difficult decision to dissolve our 501(c)(3) charitable organization. We are NOT closing StringsforaCURE due to a lack of funds. We are not a Covid Casualty, this decision was made over a year ago, long before the Covid-19 pandemic.

By the time we dissolve the 501(c)(3), we will have been in existence for 10 years and will have provided over $460,000 to breast cancer patients and their families, through our many financial assistance programs both locally and nationally. This is really a time to celebrate what this small breast cancer charity has accomplished during those 10 years!

We would like to thank everyone who has supported our mission over the years. Without you, we would not have been able to help so many breast cancer patients. Everyone who has been involved with the StringsforaCURE Foundation should be very proud of what we have been able to accomplish over the years. This is a time to celebrate! Like everything in life, we have to do what is best, because it is time to do so.
