FOR THREE SISTERS
The Carey Foundation started donating to For Three Sisters in 2014. The Carey Foundation’s funds are being used for a unique program called “Road to Resources”, which guides the newly diagnosed through the mountains of paperwork and assists them in finding support as they begin life and live with breast cancer. This support can range from groceries to helping them keep their home. We also donate The Tutu Project postcards for their Bundles of Love program.
About: For 3 Sisters was started in 2011 by retired Montgomery County, Maryland career firefighter, Marshall Moneymaker, and his wife, Shannon Moneymaker after Marshall lost three older sisters to breast cancer. Overwhelmed with grief, Marshall started sharing his story and expressed an interest in doing more for the breast cancer community. In support and gratitude of Marshall’s awareness and outreach efforts, Marshall’s fire department shift mates surprised Marshall with pink firefighter gear. Friends and local media dubbed him “The Pink Fireman” and, in honor and memory of his three sisters, For 3 Sisters was born.
The Carey Foundation started donating to CancerCare in 2013. Carey Foundation’s funds are being used for wigs, travel to treatment, compression garments, mastectomy bras and childcare help.

THE BREAST CANCER FUNDRAISER
The Carey Foundation began donating to THE Breast Cancer Fundraiser in 2015. Carey Foundation’s funds are being used for their WeCare Program, which provides care packages to newly diagnosed patients in economically disadvantaged areas. They also fund integrative care such as massage therapy, acupuncture, and other ancillary services.
About: The mission of THE Breast Cancer Fundraiser is to preserve the dignity of breast cancer patients and their loved ones by supporting their unmet needs through funding value added services. What was once a backyard gathering was never intended to become a nationwide non-profit foundation, but this organization is a true “grass-roots” movement led by ambassadors all over the U.S. Without the countless hours of service from both volunteers and Kapture’s event producers, their lavish fundraising cocktail parties would not be what they are – a vessel for young philanthropic giving. Furthermore, it is because of every individual’s financial contribution and the generous support of their sponsors, that they can take care of women and men in need of special services, which may not be covered by insurance.
