Runway for a Cure DC
Bursting With Promise, Inc. donated to the Runway for a Cure DC’s effort to provide much-needed custom masks to cancer survivors and health care personnel during the COVID-19 pandemic. Runway for a Cure DC provides financial assistance to pay for 3D mammograms for patients who are uninsured or underinsured in underserved communities in Washington, DC. They help survivors who struggle to pay for household finances while they are paying the high cost of prescribed medication. Their annual fashion event supports efforts to educate women under 50, in particular, of the importance of early detection because the death rate of women in this demographic has continued to rise, and Breast Cancer is the second leading cause of death in women next to lung cancer
