“We work all year for this one night – to present grants to the most deserving breast health and breast cancer programs in the state.” said Kimberly Goff, Executive Director of It’s The Journey, Inc. “We want to ensure that these organizations can continue to provide services from basic clinical exams to hereditary screening and follow-up treatment for breast cancer. We are proud that our funds remain focused on local needs that make a difference in Georgia communities.”
