Judi Grove is one amazing lady! She is an inspiration to me and so many others, working tirelessly to help raise money and awareness for breast cancer! I am SO thankful to call her my friend and for her creative visions with all she does with Breast Impressions! From the casting of roller derby girls all over the country to her survivor calendar she puts together each year and her fashion show at Woodland Hills Mall and our "breast cancer awareness day" at the state capital, she is one truly amazing, inspirational woman and I love her dearly and will continue to be one of her biggest supporters!
Judy Grove is a wonderful woman with a wonderful heart. Her uniuqe way of approaching breast cancer awareness is exciting. I love the way she came up with this idea. Sine my team started doing this it has become wide spread in the roller derby community and that is a wonderful thing.
Breast Impressions does a fantastic job in fundraising and awareness of breast cancer. Such an amazing Team that is truly making a difference...one person at a time. Keep up the great work!
I had the pleasure of meeting Judi Grove, founder of Breast Impressions, in early April. She donated her time and casts for an auction that I am helping to organize this October of 2010. This auction will raise proceeds to benefit YSC, (Young Survival Coalition) an international organization dedicated to working with survivors, caregivers and the medical, research, advocacy and legislative communities to increase the quality and quantity of life for women diagnosed with breast cancer ages 40 and under. Judi tirelessly worked two long days creating these castings with a constant smile and a wonderful attitude of charity. She is truly a generous soul and I am honored to have worked alongside Breast Impressions!
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 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!
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.
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.
