women from caring in our lifetime accept a plaque for the nonprofit of the month awardCaring In Our Lifetime - Fight Against Breast Cancer in Horry & Georgetown is our October Nonprofit of the Month sponsored by South Atlantic Bank.

The charity was founded in 1997 by the sales staff at what was then Time Warner Cable to financially help a former coworker who was diagnosed with breast cancer. The need to help breast cancer patients with medical bills quickly became evident and after a year, the nonprofit was officially formed.

Funds are raised throughout the year, but especially during the month of October, which is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The nonprofit is run by volunteers and about 95 percent of all funds raised go directly to help breast cancer survivors.

You can help the cause by supporting the nonprofit's events. Keep up-to-date by visiting their Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/caringinourlifetime/.

There also is currently space to serve on the nonprofit's board of directors. Connect with them in their group to learn more.
