Seattle, WA, December 30, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Michelle’s Place will receive a $1,000 “Hope For Holidays” grant from GreaterGood Network's The Breast Cancer Site.
Founded in 2001, Michelle’s Place serves as a resource center for women dealing with breast cancer. It is named for Michelle Watson, who died at age 26 following a long battle with breast cancer. Watson wanted other women to be able to easily find the resources and support that they needed.
The ten-year-old center in Temecula, CA, provides free resources to women and their families including a breast health assistance program to ensure breast cancer is caught in its early stages. The center also provides assistance to women in the form of comfort items (wigs, scarves, prostheses), a lending library, educational seminars, weekly meditation and exercise classes, lymphedema management, free and low-cost diagnostic breast health services, temporary financial support, and support groups for women and children.
Michelle’s Place was nominated for the “Hope For Holidays” grant by Freida Hall. Her photograph titled Grandma's Girls was selected by visitors at The Breast Cancer Site to be featured on the homepage and in a free ecard available now at www.TheBreastCancerSite.com.
