YVONNE MCCALLA SCHOLARSHIP FOUNDATION INCORPORATED
My name is Debra Marshall and I am President and founder of YMF Inc. I started YMF Inc. as a result of my mom, Yvonne McCalla passing away of breast cancer.
Since inception, I have heard numerous testimonials from ladies that attended one of our luncheon/educational seminars, indicating that they are now taking responsibility for their breast health by performing monthly self-breast exams. Several individuals now participate in annual mammograms as a result of YMF Inc. One person was diagnosed with breast cancer; however, it was caught at an early stage and she has a great prognosis. Additionally, several women have had scares but as a result of information provided by YMF Inc., followed the proper steps with their physician and are cancer free.
If we can help to raise awareness and help to decrease the mortality rate for ALL women, then we have fulfilled our calling. There is so much more work for us to do and we need the help of the community to do what God has called us to do.
