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

Breast Impressions is so much more than sculptures and artwork. It has networked survivors, like myself, across the country. It had given women strength, hope and empowerment. It has also given us a moment, frozen in time, that forever represents our struggles and perserverance. We have made many new frindships and support through Judi and all her dedication and hard work. Hats off to Breast Impressions, Keep up the great work!

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

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.

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

networking with like-minded individuals to further increase awareness of and support for women diagnosed with breast cancer.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

None are needed.

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

the energy and commentment to help women affected by breast cancer.

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

Professional, vibrant, positive, encouraging.

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

positively impact the lives of women affected by breast cancer on a national level.

Ways to make it better...

I can't imagine any improvements.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

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.
