Steve and Emily Goudy started the Taking a Shot at Breast Cancer Calendar and Human Ribbon in 2010 after one of Emily’s closest friends shared that her sister was diagnosed with Stage 4 Breast Cancer. This news hit very close to home, as Emily’s sister was the same age and they had also been childhood friends. At that moment Emily decided she wanted to do more and brought that news to Steve and the idea for the calendar and human ribbon were born.
Over the past several years we have worked very closely with the St. Clair County Community Foundation donating to different community breast cancer funds.
In 2014, we were able to start the “Taking a Shot at Breast Cancer” Fund within the Community Foundation. With our own fund established we were able to donate $10,000 to the McLaren Port Huron Foundation to help jump start a new program for cancer patients in St. Clair County receiving treatment with incidental expenses.
In 2015, we were able to donate another $10,000 to the Lake Huron Foundations Pink Ribbon Fund to assist patients receiving treatment at Lake Huron Medical Center.
We are extremely grateful and humbled by the support of the community over the last several years and look forward to many more years of hard work and helping those in St. Clair County battle Breast Cancer. Since 2010 we have been able to raise just over $45,000 for Breast Cancer patients in our community.
