Message from the President
My biological mother died when I was 4 months old which caused my siblings and I to live in different homes throughout the neighborhood. I was so grateful that one of my sisters lived directly across the street from me and we were able to "grow up together." In the home where she lived was another little girl named Irene. Irene and I thus became "sisters" at the age of 8 and were inseparable from that time forward.
In our mid 40's, after having bonded even closer and raising our children as cousins, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. The healthiest person in the world - from my viewpoint - but nonetheless, Irene's diagnosis subsequently lead to her passing in December of 1990.
In the years to follow, my daughter discovered the beautiful gift of breast prosthetics when she was personally fitted for a bra. Wanting EVERY Breast Cancer Survivor as well as women born with Asymmetrical Breasts to have this gift, our family began a nonprofit organization - BFRIN. Our organization's mission, "to help low-income individuals and families in need," embodies the love we had for Irene and helps community members along their journey with services not otherwise readily available to them. Every person we help is treated just as if she WERE my sister.
Our focus is on EDUCATION. BFRIN educates community members and medical professionals alike. We are committed to serve the humanities; low-income individuals in particular, with the help they need and at the time they need it.
