Don’t Be A Chump! Check For a Lump! with Founder and CEO, Holly Rose and Business Development Manager, Desire’e Hardge
Don’t be a Chump! Check for a Lump! is celebrating 8 years as a proud Arizona Local 501c3 Non-profit. Their mission is to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer through education, prevention, direct assistance with free wigs, mammograms and treatment in Arizona.
CEO Holly Rose founded the organization after her long and intensive battle with breast cancer at the age of 38. She witnessed and experienced the lack of support and information on breast cancer and breast health in general, which brought about depression coupled with hopelessness and isolation, at the most vulnerable time in her life. With two small kiddos and a husband, Holly vowed to herself that she was not going to allow this cancer to consumer her life, nor take her from her babies. From her trials and tribulations birthed Don’t be a Chump! Check for a Lump! in 2010. For Holly it’s about empowering women and young girls to take charge of their lives through education, prevention and awareness. Also, to help support those who are battling breast cancer, and to let them know that they are not alone and they do not have to go through it alone. That is why Don’t be a Chump! Check for a Lump! goes out into communities and offers free mammograms, education and prevention, custom wigs and direct assistance. Because they believe that one’s health is priceless, and women should never have to choose between health or mortgage/rent etc., and awareness is power.
Together we can make a difference in the fight against breast cancer!
