“Do not let cancer define you but let it inspire you to help others.” – Michelle Apple RD, LD –
As a registered dietitian who has made a career in helping with nutrition and wellness, Michelle Apple’s battle began in 2018 when she was diagnosed with metastatic stage 3 breast cancer. Everywhere she turned, kind words, offers to help, and sharing of success stories fueled her fight. Energized by the outpouring of encouragement, she created a nonprofit to share knowledge, give back, and inspire the warriors of the world.
The Apple Breast Cancer Warrior Foundation (ABC Warrior) is a leading local advocacy organization dedicated to creating awareness of breast care, prevention of breast cancer, and support for warriors in the journey of fighting breast cancer.
These brave women need your support for their next event: Comfort Bags Collections. Fighting cancer any time of year is difficult, but even more so during the holidays as many cancer fighters may be in the hospital away from their families or may not feel well enough to join traditional holiday events. ABC Warrior is collecting comfort bags to bring some reprieve to those who need a dose of optimism and hope. The bags, designed to provide comfort and warmth, will include items such as a blanket, lip balm, lotion, footies, games, books, puzzles, chocolates, and peppermint or lemon drops. The bags will be delivered to local cancer centers before the holidays in November at McLeod Health Oncology, Tideland Health Oncology, Conway Oncology, and Coastal Carolina Cancer Centers to bring a smile to all cancer patients as they go through this long journey.
