Breast cancer hits close to home for the Swinney family. Kathleen lost her older sister to breast cancer and thanks to breakthrough research and early detection, both Kathleen and her younger sister discovered that they carry the BRCA gene mutation, making the risk of the disease very close to her. The Swinney’s believe that the research and early detection very well may have saved the lives of both Kathleen and her younger sister and they dream of a day when no one suffers from this disease. They are passionate about helping to find a cure, while hopefully making things a little easier for the families who are currently in the battle with this disease.
1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with the disease over the course of her lifetime. According to SCDHEC, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among women in South Carolina and it is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths among women in the state. Our objective is to raise funds annually for breast cancer research and prevention, with an emphasis on local hospitals, university research programs, and organizations providing medical screening, testing, and support to local upstate residents. Since 2009, the All In Foundation has raised and donated over $850,000 to breast cancer prevention, technology, and research.
