SUZY'S STORY¡­

     Suzy McGrane was a local photographer who was diagnosed in her early twenties with
     breast cancer. While battling cancer in Arizona near her family, her friends from SC
     gathered in Columbia to find a way to help with the financial expenses related to her
     treatment. The friends put together Save Our Suzy, SOS, a wine tasting event in Five
     Points. That night new and old friends gathered together for one incredible evening;
     all with the same goal, to save their friend.

     After completing her treatment, Suzy returned to Columbia a new person, with a new
     goal in sight. While working with a local cancer center, Suzy was able to raise funds for
     breast cancer patients. SOS events continued and thousands of dollars were raised.
     Each time, Suzy had new patient stories to share with her friends. She would help them
     all, in any way she could.

     In the fall of 2004, the cancer returned and again SOS became an effort to Save Our
     Suzy. Events were held in Columbia and Charleston (Suzy's second home) raising money
     to help fight the battle. In less than one year cancer would claim Suzy's life, but not her
     spirit.

     Save Our Suzy became what is now known as Share Our Suzy, SOS. Our goal is to allow
     patients to focus solely on recovery and not the financial stress brought on during this
     very difficult battle
. The foundation picks up where Suzy left off and aids those with
     bridging the financial gap from diagnosis to remission. Funds raised are used to provide
     assistance to those with every day needs such as wigs, prosthetics, childcare, gas cards,
     utility bill assistance, medication assistance and more. We help cover the critical areas
     that insurance companies do not.

     The people we serve are more than just patients: they are mothers, grandmothers, sisters
     and daughters
. They have children, spouses and responsibilities. Fighting cancer is
     about more than having chemo and radiation treatments. It affects all aspects of life. It
     is amazing what a wig can do for a patient's self esteem. A prosthetic bra can make all
     the difference to a recovering breast cancer patient. Having family there to hold a
     hand during treatment makes the battle bearable. Knowing that the electricity bill will
     be paid is a big relief. SOS, a 501(c)(3) provides these types of assistance to people
     who would otherwise have to do without
.
