Pink breast cancer ribbon held


in February, communities donated their love and support to Helping Hands for Manitobans with Breast Cancer, a charity committed to providing financial assistance to those receiving breast cancer treatment or follow-up care.

Misfortune, suffering, hardship, distress, setbacks - these are just a few of the many challenges faced by women undergoing breast cancer treatment or recovery. 

In 2005, a small group of Manitobans recognized this need was not being addressed by the health care system and decided to do something about it. In 2020, Helping Hands will have provided financial assistance for uninsured medical/treatment cost, transportation to/form appointments, parking at hospital/doctor's office, and other support care services including Lymphedema garments and wigs for breast cancer patients for 15 years. We’d like to take a moment to celebrate that.

"I wish to express my gratitude for your cheque to cover my transportation costs. Women lose so much in wages, their CPP contributions are lost, and so many out of the pocket expenses, but thanks to your organization I can pay this most important bill." Bonnie - Helping Hands for Manitobans with Breast Cancer Recipient 

From transportation costs and prescription drugs, to the myriad expenses that arise, patients are in desperate need of financial support. Not only for these out-of-pocket expenses, but to support the loss in wages and CPP contributions.

"You truly do understand how difficult life can get when a person gets sick.”- Myra, Helping Hands for Manitobans with Breast Cancer Recipient 

Helping Hands has become an invaluable guardian angel for recipients of their love and financial support. When treatment and recovery left patients and their families feeling physically and emotionally exhausted, Helping Hands greatly lightens the load, allowing those in need to focus on getting through treatment, supporting their family, and beginning to start a new life.

We at I AM LOVE Project are so full of love for this charity and encouraged to see our community support by joining the CHAIN OF LOVE: Self-Development Workshop - "Falling in Love with You" February fundraiser and purchasing the crystal charity bracelet. 

We at I AM LOVE Project are so full of gratitude for this charity and we are encouraged to see the community come together to assist those in need. Support them through our CHAIN OF LOVE: Self-Development Workshop - “Falling in Love with You” and by purchasing our crystal charity bracelet.

The impact of your support can shift the entire trajectory of a person’s life. When we are able to give with abundance, we hold space for others to do the same. When we generously support others, it comes back to us tenfold.

By supporting women in need, we support the global community of mothers, daughters, sisters and friends. When women are empowered, the collective whole can heal. When we heal each other, we heal ourselves.

Spread the love with I AM LOVE and Helping Hands by joining our workshop and purchasing one of our beautiful bracelets, and watch the abundance flow
