The organization was founded in 2010 by military combat veteran, Anisa Palmer, who lost her mother to breast cancer. We provide economic support, prevention education, and health & wellness services to our community members affected by breast cancer.

Alarming facts: “One woman will die of breast cancer every 13 minutes in the U.S. and every 19 seconds, someone in the world is diagnosed with breast cancer.” Your contribution helps us in our life saving programs as we continue to “support the fighters” who are diagnosed with breast cancer and spread prevention tips and education to the communities. A man’s lifetime risk of breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000.

Please reach the Executive Director, Anisa Palmer, for additional information if needed at Anisa.Palmer@IWillSurviveInc.org and be sure to visit us on the web and like our facebook page, connect with us on instagram, and follow us on twitter.#aNightofFashoin #IWillSurviveInc @IWillSurviveInc

Anisa Palmer speaks with Health Professional Radio

Standard

I like to have hot topic discussions to bring not only awareness of certain topics to people who may not get a chance to have the opportunity, to have that discussion, but to also increase my knowledge. I do not know everything. I learn from some of the youngest children I come in counter with when mentoring and I am honored.

What I really have a problem with is when people share misguided information or when they knowingly share misleading information. These people lose credibility fast for me, but for others, others that refuse to do their own research, tend to stay in the misguided path. A cloudy path or a path that never seems to be lighted with truth nor enlightened with logic.

Let us always seek knowledge. Let us always share knowledge and let us never forget, with knowledge comes power. Let us be reminded from the footsteps of great leaders and inspirational leaders around the world. Let us grow to continue to be coaches, mentors, leaders, inspirational people and more. Who is with me? This is a call to action. A call for change. A pledge to do better. To be better. Everyday. I am counting on you. Please count on me to do the same.

In Service,

Anisa Palmer

How to Manage Hair Loss with Breast Cancer?

Standard

According to the Mayo Clinic, “both men and women report hair loss as one of the side effects they fear most after being diagnosed with cancer.” Below are the five w’s on losing hair and tips to overcome so you can focus on surviving.

Who– anyone going through chemotherapy from children to adults. Chemotherapy is often recommended from most conventional doctors as a way to treat malignant tumors. Some also add radiation in the treatments which can tend to have a longer process for the hair to regrow.

What– hair loss is also called alopecia but not all people lose hair because of chemotherapy. Some people can lose hair because it is a simple aging process or other factors.

When– this can vary from person to person as well as the strength of the immune system and level of chemotherapy that weakens the immune system.

Where- you can lose all of the hair on every inch of your body.(Ex: arm pit, eye lashes, eyebrows, back, chest, legs, arms, pubic areas, head)

Why– hair loss can occur because of various levels or dosages of chemicals or drugs from chemotherapy.

Now that you know some of the basics on hair loss whether you are dealing with it now, going to be dealing with it in the future, or know someone who will be dealing with it, you can help.

Self image is an important factor that also goes hand in hand with regards to hair loss. There are several phenomenal people, women specifically, who have rocked the “beautifully bald” look.

Do not feel the need to have to buy a wig or wear a scarf all the time. If you would like to, that is also as well. Sometimes your scalp needs to breathe. When wigs are kept on for long periods of time, sometimes the scalp is not able to breathe allowing for a longer time for hair regrowth.

If you would like to have a wig and unable to afford one, I Will Survive, Inc. has some wigs for breast cancer pre-survivors in our program. If you would like to donate unused wigs please do so as well and also very important, please consider donating to our program to buy new wigs that our clients can enjoy. Recently requested was a short curly wig and we do not have any.

Your donation is tax deductible to the full extent of the law. For more information, please contact us at 404-483-8503 or email at contact@iwillsurviveinc.org

“April Showers Bring May Flowers”

Standard

Transitioning from April to May was great for I Will Survive, Inc. We had our amazing #IWSribboncuttingceremony on April 18, 2015 and Mayor Pittman proclaimed the day to now be known as the “I Will Survive” day. What an honor to all those who are battling breast cancer and all those who survived. Mothers, fathers, grandmothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, brothers, daughters, sons… a special moment to honor those who lost the fight against breast cancer as well. Karen Palmer, was born on April 18, 1952 and gave birth to 5 children before the tender age of 38 when she had a final lung failure due to the malignant tumor spreading.

Rain was in the forecast and our new building (donated for one year) was not large enough to bring everyone inside for the ceremony. We opened with Pastor Cail and the rain moved out of the clouds. God shed light through the rays of the sun and the gloomy day became bright. It was a joyous day. $523 dollars was raised to help fund our programs and we hope to have our Office Manager and Receptionist hired soon to help us run our programs out of a building we can now call home.

Show your mothers love, not only on Mother’s day coming up, but cherish them everyday. We do not know how long they have on this earth. Kiss them, hug them, tell them that you love them, and appreciate them. For I, Anisa Palmer, founder of I Will Survive, Inc., nonprofit organization for breast cancer awareness through education and funding in lower-income communities, wish that I spent more time doing that in the short amount of years that I had my dear mother, Karen Palmer, by my side.

And rain on our future mothers so they can blossom into magnificent women. Inspire them to be community leaders and women of virtue. Give them knowledge to help them succeed. Mentor them. Teach them. Lead them. And support them as we continue to “Support the Fighters”.

Amanda Schiavo

NEW YORK (TheStreet) –Mother’s Day became an official U.S holiday in 1914, after the day’s founder Anna Jarvis spent four years petitioning the government, in order to get it to officially recognize mothers and all that they do.

Since that time the holiday has become a worldwide tradition in which children and adults gather together to celebrate the woman that gave them life, inspired them, supported them no matter what and protected them growing up.

Sometimes it can be hard to tell your mom just how much you love and appreciate her. If you are looking for the perfect saying to show your mom some love and gratitude check out the following list of 10 inspirational quotes to share with your mother on her special day.
