Programs: Turn Tulsa Pink, a project of Breast Impressions was held Oct. 22 - 29, 2011. We were successful in turning buildings pink, employees from companies all over the county wearing pink to work, and holding fundraising events. Ten local charities were highlighted for their work for women and children affected by cancer. Not just breast cancer but all cancers. To date over $46,000 was raised for those ten charities! We will be doing it again Oct. 20 - 27, 2011 and hope for even a greater response and greater results! Check out our Turn Tulsa Pink website at http://turntulsapink.org

Judi Grove with Breast Impressions contacted me after reading a newsarticle about my breast cancer. She asked if she could cast me for their fundraiser and I said yes. After all the things we go through with breast cancer, the casting lets you feel good to celebrate your body. That was just the beginning of a friendship and admiration that kept growing. Anytime Judi tells me about an event, if I can help either humanly or monetary I do. Without Judi's artistic enthusiasm, Breast Impressions would just be another organization. Judi's dedication shows me she eats, sleeps and lives Breast Impression. It is an honor to work with Judi Grove and Breast Impressions. Judy Eason McIntyre, Oklahoma State Senator District 11

My thanks to Senator Judy Eason McIntyre who truly is a warrior for breast cancer in Breast Impressions home state of Oklahoma. She is pictured above in our first Breast Impressions Survivor calendar where survivors were body painted and appeared in the 2008 calendar. Thank you Judy for all you do for women and men in Oklahoma!

I've been a BC survivor for almost 6 years and back in 2008 while playing roller derby for the KC Roller Warriors I had the opportunity to meet Judi and learn about Breast Impressions. My derby league loved working with BI to raise funds and awareness.

Breast Impressions loves meeting and working with young survivors like you Jessica! And hopefully by educating more young women about their risks, we can continue to save more lives!

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!!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

successfully completing 14 breast casts, which are now ready to be given to 14 local artists for completion!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

spending a whole weekend making breast casts!! We accomplished so much, had fun and feel that we have gotten this huge undertaking off on the right foot!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, FUN, accommodating.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

do so much to help women diagnosed with breast cancer. EMPOWER THEM!!
