CHR's Charity of the Month: Gloria Gemma The Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation in Pawtucket, RI is CHR's October charity of the month. 

 

The foundation was established in 2004 in loving memory of Gloria Gemma, a beloved wife and mother of nine, after she lost her two year battle with the horrible disease. Since then, the foundation holds fast to its mission of helping women and men detect breast tumors early to ultimately save lives. In 2008, Gloria's eldest daughter, Maria, opened a Resource and Wellness Center allowing the public to come in for education and much needed help. Eighty-eight cents of every dollar donated goes to raising breast cancer awareness, enhancing the quality of life for breast cancer patients, and increasing breast health education.
