I am a two time breast cancer survivor, my sister is a ovarian cancer survivor, I am from Oklahoma, I met Judi Grove of Breast Impressions not long after my second diagnosis, I asked her about the breast casts she does, were the money was going, I learned it goes 100% to a Breast Cancer Educating, Financial Charity of choice by what ever group she is breast casting and having a auction for at the time. I also learned that 100% had gone to Tulsa Project Woman by one of the Roller Derby Girl Teams she had casted, Tulsa Project Woman is also a non-profit organization in Tulsa, Oklahoma so this would be near and dear to me, they educate women young and old about breast health, they offer free mammograms to women with no insurance and low income they also help provide for the cost of treatment should a woman be diagnosis with breast cancer. Breast Impressions is not just making a locally impact they are making a State to State impact and a impact on young women as well as older woman and I am Very Proud of Judi and Breast Impressions for what they have been able so far to accomplish starting out as just a small local charity, I am also Proud to call Judi my friend. Personal Impact with Breast Impressions ~ 1. I was part of a Survivor Breast Casting Auction; funds went to Tulsa Project Woman. 2. I have met so many wonderful women survivors, women still battling cancer, also some very dear women who have lost their battle with cancer. 3. First & Second Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Day at the Oklahoma State Capital building (making a State Impact) 4. Judi of Breast Impressions was the first woman to help me find my confidence as a woman on my road back from recovery of breast cancer, she is not only friend she is a giver, I call her my sister.

I met the founder (Judi Grove) the first year she started this non profit, I love and appreciate all she does.. she goes above and beyond, spreading awareness and raising money that benifits local organizations such as the YSC and organizations that service survivors and familys of survivors. Judi works non stop, not only does Breast impressions cast breast, calenders for fundraisers but Breast Impressions has also started a Breast Cancer Awareness Day at Oklahoma's State Capital..two years in a row! Breast Impressions you ROCK..thank you for all you do..<3

I met the founder of Breast Impressions (Judi Grove) in Indianapolis where the local roller derby team raised over 5,000 dollars for the Young Survivor's Coalition. The event was well attended and had wonderful information available for Breast Cancer Awarenesss. This successful non profit has a unique way of spreading the word through Art. Breast casts of Roller Girls are turned into beautiful works of art painted by local artists, auctioned off at the event and 100% of the proceeds are given in full to the local charity chosen by those holding the event. This sets Breast Impressions apart from any other non profit for breast cancer. I highly recommend them to any group, female sports team, or organization wanting to do something unique in your community. Founder Judi Grove is an incrediable,hard working, dedicated advocate and spokes person for Breast Cancer Awareness all around the world. She has unselfishly given her time,knowledge, and love to others for a fight she strongly believes in. Breast Impressions has also worked with The Simon Malls Corporation,The Pink Fire Trucks,Tulsa Project Woman,Sound Affect,Mutual Omaha's "A-ha" Moments, and recently was featured on CNN news for her efforts to raise awareness in Oklahoma at The Capitol.CNN shared Breast Impression's fight for awareness and education among hundreds of Survivors,Co-Survivors,and Congress at the courthouse. Breast Impression's founder Judi Grove also provided and produced a touching and magical video of Oklahoma Survivors who have died (or are surviving the battle of Breast Cancer) in their local districts connecting them to their individual Congressmen to promote awareness. Hats off to Breast Impression's for making a difference in the fight against Breast Cancer Awareness - and thank-you to Judi Grove!

Some quiet giving moments later become electric sparks that take you many different directions. As an author/artist/sculptor it was a moment in time that became life changing, mind boggling, earth shattering as to the effect it would have like the pebble in the pond. Judi and Nancy with Breast Impressions ignited a flame for women that will burn gloriously, brightly and forever in our health, and in our happiness ,spurring us onward to new heights, taking care of ourselves and remembering that when you give it is astounding the gifts you get in return. Truly each one who has been a part of this project has magnified her life for the sake of all women....and yes, we are worth it!!! Dream big, go for the brass ring, for we ARE the dreammakers!

Breast Impressions is a wonderful organization that donates it's fund raising proceeds to help women in Oklahoma that have breast cancer and do not have health insurance receive the medical care they need and deserve. She is very dedicated in her efforts of raising awareness of this horrible disease and for women to take control of learning how to detect the disease and how to fight it.

I have helped Judi in many of her events, including all of her galas that she's had over the last four years, the Awareness Day at the Capitol this past April and with a couple of her gallery showings prior to the galas.

Great Grass Roots organization that spend all of their money and time raising awareness of the need and availability for early detection and screening for breast cancer. This group raises money to provide screening for those who are not covered by Health Insurance. Although started in Oklahoma it is branching out and involving all different members of communities in several states in the US.

As founder of a non-profit organization myself, also supporting women affected by breast cancer, I am amazed and grateful for the impact Breast Impressions has had in the Tulsa area, and even beyond. She has not only personally encouraged women diagnosed with breast cancer, but she has greatly increased public awareness and the importance of early detection. Judi, the founder, is such a positive inspiring person, and her energy is contagious and empowering.

Continued funding to allow them to continue their worthwhile and life-impacting efforts.

One thing I'd also say is that...

the passion of the founder seems to be immeasurable in it's depth, and women of all ages, ethnicity, income levels will be positively affected by the efforts of this organization.

Breast impressions is a wonderful organization bringing awareness and beauty to an important cause. The artistry of these projects is genuinely one of a kind and a brilliantly unique way to help raise donations! I am very proud to have been apart of this project for our Roller Derby team and highly encourage anyone and everyone to be involved with Breast Impressions! Whether you're a volunteer, a casting subject or donating this is one organization you don't want to miss out on!

Breast Impressions is a unique organization with a fabulous mission. As a survivor and an advocate I know that breast cancer organizations have become a dime a dozen. Breast Impressions, though, breaks the mold and raises the bar. Judi Grove is passionate, motivated and very inclusive. I have participated in a several events that she has put on for Breast Impressions both as a participant and an attendee. My experiences have always been positive. I have always felt appreciated as a volunteer and honored as a survivor.

Our derby league has just started the process of making breast casts, which will be finished by local artists and then will be auctioned at our final bout of the season, with the proceeds going to our local Breast Cancer Coalition. I can not say enough about how wonderful Judi Grove, of Breast Impressions, Inc. has been to work with. She spent a very long weekend making 14 breast casts last weekend and has given us a good deal of guidance and information on how to proceed with this project! She is wonderful to work with; very professional and full of helpful tips and knowledge on how to make this charity bout as profitable as possible. Judi will be helping us through this entire process and will return in November to assist us with the auction! Haivng Judi's guidance has helped make this HUGE project seem so much more manageable and FUN!!
