About the Give Back Grant program

The KAB Give Back Grant directly supports BIPOC women who are breast cancer survivors or have been diagnosed with breast cancer. 

Different communities are disproportionately impacted by breast cancer and other diseases in different ways. These issues need to be addressed and talked about in order to incite change. This grant program directs 100% of GBG fundraising efforts to BIPOC women who are in need of financial support during their breast cancer journey. The funds can be used for medical treatment, alternative care, financial support, business support, and essential self-care.
