Albie Aware…?

Blues for Life is a celebration of  life, and benefits Ablie Aware Breast Cancer Foundation.

Created in memory of Albie Carson, who succumbed to breast cancer on July 4, 2002. Albie was a 50-year resident of Sacramento where she attended school, raised a family, and made a career in the real estate community.

In honor of Albie, it is our goal to raise money to help others in the community who face their own battles with this disease.  The foundation and all involved foster AWARENESS: “Albie Aware” sounds like “I’ll be aware” and that’s our purpose: To make people aware of cancer PREVENTION methods through nutrition and exercise, to encourage self-examination and a follow-up doctor’s appointment for early DETECTION, to be aware of the diagnostic testing available to determine the best TREATMENT for breast cancer and the early detection of a recurrence, and to provide financial assistance when these tests are not covered by the insurance provider.

Albie Aware isn’t just a foundation… but a changer … and a saver… of lives.  Join us at Blues For Life, and find out more at AlbieAware.org.
