In the District-(630), Maryland-(5,470), and Virginia-(7,450) a total of over 13,000 people will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year in our community. This is why WUSA9 partnered with our local IIIB’s Foundation to share information about early detection and a way that you can comfort those going through the process of surviving breast cancer.

Please click to donate any amount towards a Bosom Buddy Basket. Every time we reach $150 raised, a Bosom Buddy Basket filled with comfort items will be sent to a local Breast Cancer Patient who must go through a mastectomy. Together, let’s impact those in our local community who need our help. Thank you for your support!

2021 Still Standing Breast Cancer Awareness & Survivor Celebration was a Huge Success!

The IIIB’s Foundation wants to extend a Big Thank you to WUSA9’s Get Up DC! Team: Allison Seymour, Annie Yu, Michelle Logan and Tony Perkins along with Great Day Washington’s Kristen Berset plus all Special Guests who celebrated breast cancer Survivors on Friday, October 29th for the Virtual Still Standing Celebration…
