Each of the last five Octobers, the Chicago Wolves and their fans have teamed up to raise money for A Silver Lining Foundation.Dr. Sandy Goldberg, who founded ASLF in 2002 shortly after starting her own successful battle against breast cancer, treasures each and every dollar because it means people who cannot afford breast health testing will receive mammograms and diagnostic care as well as access to breast cancer surgery and treatment.
“This money is a godsend,” Dr. Sandy said. “An absolute godsend.”
This Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which features the Wolves’ Breast Cancer Awareness Day event on Sunday, Oct. 25, at Allstate Arena, finds A Silver Lining Foundation and Illinois residents more in need of dollars than ever.
