Kristy Lasch Miracle Foundation
Updated On: Aug 28, 2012

The Kristy Lasch Miracle Foundation

 

For Kristy...
Kristy Leigh Lasch was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was only twenty-two years old.  Throughout her ordeal, she remained positive, energetic, and strong, even when faced with limited resources.

Before she died, Kristy envisioned creating an organization to help younger breast cancer patients. She knew too well how financially cumbersome the disease could become, and the unique challenges of having the disease at such a young age. The Kristy Lasch Miracle Foundation was created in her memory, and honors her dream.

After a valiant struggle, she passed away October 3, 2004, at the tender, young age of twenty-six.


Our Vision
Our vision is to create a world in which our current services are no longer necessary.


Our Mission
The Kristy Lasch Miracle Foundation is committed to providing financial assistance to women under 30 living with breast cancer.


We could sure use some help...
Since founding the Kristy Lasch Miracle Foundation in 2005, we have been able to help a number of young women living with breast cancer with their medical related finances. We’ve also been able to grant them the exact amount that they asked for. With the Foundation’s name getting out there more, we have been contacted by more and more young women.

We aren’t a huge organization, yet. We only do one big fundraiser a year. That’s worked for us as a Foundation in previous years but the ratio of requests to donations has become daunting.

So many young women under 30 are being inflicted by this horrible disease and calling us. I’m so afraid that we won’t be able to meet their financial needs and hope that by visiting Kristy's site today, you can help by making a donation.
