The average national cost of a mammogram is $266. If we can raise that much, we could potentially save a life by helping someone detect breast cancer at an early stage.
About Marizzle Fo Shizzle
In October 2011, the Breast Cancer Can Stick It! Team participated in their first breast cancer awareness walk.
In 2012, in addition to participating in its second breast cancer awareness walk, further fundraising activities began in the form of Metal Shop drummer's "Crash Gordon's Breast Cancer Can Stick It! Fundraiser".
In 2013, the decision was made to turn Breast Cancer Can Stick It! into a fully functioning nonprofit foundation. The Breast Cancer Can Stick It! Foundation's mission is to raise awareness and funds for a cure by orchestrating energetic, unique, music-minded events that ROCK to ultimately STICK IT to breast cancer.
Since 2010, April's efforts have raised a combined over $80,000.
