Two years ago Leesburg resident, Holly, was diagnosed with breast cancer. A mother of five with a full-time job, Holly’s insurance initially indicated she was covered for the operation, but shortly before the scheduled procedure her claim was denied. Like many women, Holly now found herself without insurance and in need of a life-saving operation.
Holly contacted The Cherry Blossom Breast Cancer Foundation, who immediately went to work on her behalf, stepped in with financial aid and secured the needed operation.
Holly’s family has been in the Christmas tree business for thirty years, selling trees in the Herndon area. The family’s desire was to thank The Cherry Blossom Breast Cancer Foundation for saving Holly’s life with a yearly fundraiser for their cause. Last year, the family approached the leadership at the Brambleton community to sell trees. The Brambleton Town Center was elated to sponsor a tree-sales fundraiser with all proceeds
going to the Cherry Blossom Breast Cancer Foundation. The first year of Christmas For The Cause was a great success with proceeds of $3,200.00 going to the foundation.
Tree sales are again set up at the Brambleton Town Center, with all proceeds once again going to our foundation, so please stop buy and support a great cause.

As the single largest donation yet made to our organization, a very generous friend of Cherry Blossom has given us $50,000 to further our local work. The funds will quickly be awarded to provide better access to mammography for local women. This is the second large donation made by this donor to the Cherry Blossom Breast Cancer Foundation for its local effort to detect, treat, educate, and eliminate breast cancer.
