BEYOND THE HOSPITAL

Besides the physical challenges that come with a cancer, there are often emotional and financial ones, too. I’mpact One Breast Cancer Foundation offers women help with essential—but often missing—resources needed during treatment, recovery, and beyond. Elizabeth Ayers-Cluff was inspired by her own breast cancer journey. Even with all the information out there, it was surprisingly difficult to find supplemental resources to help. She founded I’mpact so other women would have the help they need. I’mpact One’s network of advocates offers women emotional support, education, and awareness through a free hotline. They guide breast cancer sufferers through various challenges—like understanding insurance coverage. And when needed, they connect women to partner organizations that can help with their unique situation, like financing treatment for those who are underinsured. Post-treatment, I’mpact One provides prosthetics, bras, wigs, and post-surgical garments to women who can’t afford them. A donation provides these brave women with vital services that help on their path to recovery.

    My name is Elizabeth Ayers Cluff, founder of I'mpact One Breast Cancer Foundation. Our mission is to alleviate the financial and emotional burden experienced during expensive breast cancer treatment and recovery. We will provide prosthetics, bras, wigs, and post surgical garments. I’mpact One will also help provide emotional support, education, awareness and external resources for you and your loved one’s during this journey. I am honored to share our story on The Grommet.

    How have you seen things change in women’s health services since you went through your breast cancer journey?

    Awareness is getting better in the health industry but because of the change in health care and the change in age for a mammogram I believe that women will have to be their own advocate. If they feel something isn't right with their body or notice changes in their breast they will have to really communicate with their health care provider because a lot of these services need family history to get covered for additional services.

    We have helped women who would normally not have every been able to afford these vital essentials that are provided. Sending women wigs has been a huge blessing to many of these breast cancer fighters. We recently sent a wig to a 30 year old breast cancer fighter that is in treatment and needs to pay for treatment so providing her a wig allowed her to put some of her money towards the bills of chemotherapy.

    Challenges are to keep the volunteers and be able to get the proper help you need to keep the foundation going. Because we have worked hard getting the product donated to our foundation the next challenge will be raising money to ship these boxes to each women in need.

    Was this a business you saw yourself building when you got started? And was it something you felt that you were equipped to do or did you learn as you went along?

    I did see myself building this non-profit on my own. But in order to be equipped I knew that fundraising would be a huge part making it a success so I had to tap into my resources and business colleges that I knew.
