"After a bad day with chemo I came home and opened your letter approving me for financial aid. I fell to my knees and started crying and thanking God and BCFO for answering my prayers. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart”.
"Thank you so very much for all the work and support that you do for all of us that are going through difficult times faced with cancer. Your organization is truly a blessing. I am so grateful and thankful for all the help BCFO has given me”.
"It is such a blessing to have a local organization like yours that is willing to help a family like ours. The kind of financial aid that BCFO has given my family has truly blessed us and taken so much stress off our lives. Words cannot express how much my family is grateful for all you have done”.
Organizations like the Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks (BCFO) exist solely to bring hope, assistance and resources to those families in our region who have been impacted by breast cancer. Hiland Dairy knows the importance of being a good neighbor and an active community member, so we actively support local and regional causes, events, and organizations that seek to help make our communities better places to live.
That’s why we are proud to continue the "Hiland for Pink" breast cancer awareness campaign for the seventh consecutive year. With "Hiland for Pink," we partner with BCFO to help raise awareness and funds to support families impacted by breast cancer. Here’s how our customers can participate and help support "Hiland for Pink” and BCFO.
Hiland Dairy will donate 5 cents for each YoPhoria Smoothie, Lactose Free Milk and Iced Coffee sold, and 20 cents for every 4-quart pail of ice cream sold between July 1 and September 30.*
"Like" our Facebook page — for every new Facebook fan, Hiland will donate $1 toward breast cancer awareness.*
*For product purchases during the promotional period of July 1 through Sept. 30, 2022 — including 20 cents for each Hiland Dairy 4-quart ice cream pail sold; 5 cents for each Hiland YoPhoria Smoothie, Lactose Free Milk and Iced Coffee sold; and $1 for every new Facebook fan on the Hiland Dairy Facebook page — Hiland Dairy will make a donation to the Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks (up to $25,000).
The Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks (BCFO) is the only local organization providing nonmedical financial support to those facing hardships due to breast cancer. BCFO provides community education, mentoring programs and support groups, as well as assistance with free screening mammography. But it does much more than that.
BCFO also pays rents/mortgages, utilities and car payments so those suffering from breast cancer can focus on treatment instead of financial hardship. It even helps pay for auto repairs, so patients can get to and from medical appointments. And, for those who are newly diagnosed, BCFO hosts a mentoring program that pairs new patients with breast cancer survivors.
BCFO helps patients' children, too, offering financial assistance with school clothing and supplies, orthodontic continuation, eyeglasses, and more. For additional information, please visit BCFO.org.
