Breast Cancer Fight Inspires Foundation to Help Women

There is no good time to get cancer, but there are some times that are particularly bad. Danielle Beverly, one of our 2012 Patients of Courage, was just 3 weeks away from giving birth to her first baby when she learned she had breast cancer-for the third time. Well, Beverly survived to be a great mom and, as the wife of a former NFL player, she's leveraging her position to help other women fighting breast cancer. The Eric R. Beverly Family Foundation takes care of the economic and social needs of families of uninsured or underinsured breast cancer patients. Their foundation assists with treatment-related costs like co-pays, prescriptions, transportation and childcare.

The 2012 Patients of Courage series highlights breast reconstruction patients who are now making a difference in the fight against breast cancer.
