to the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation!

Chances are you or someone you know has been affected by breast cancer.  The story of Gloria Gemma is centered in love—love of family, love for others and most of all, love of life.  The Foundation is rooted in family values, and it is a place for people to find resources and support.  We understand that breast cancer is as much an emotional disease as it is a physical one.  We also understand that awareness and education promotes early detection, which is the best protection.

It is our sincere desire to help everyone who has been touched by breast cancer, and our passion is born out of our personal experiences with this disease.  We are here to help you through your breast cancer journey with love, support, information, and resources.  Whether you are newly diagnosed, a survivor or you’ve lost a love one to this terrible disease, the staff and volunteers of the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation are here for you.  We are committed to helping you restore mind, body and spirit through healing arts programs, education and support.

To learn more on how we can assist you and your loved ones through breast cancer, please call 401-861-HERO (4376) or email us at info@gloriagemma.org.
