Renuka's journey with Carolina Breast Friends (CBF) is rooted in a legacy of altruism. Inspired by her grandmother's and mother's longstanding dedication to charitable causes in India, Renuka's path intersected with CBF through a former volunteer. Stepping in when her friend couldn't commit, Renuka embarked on a remarkable five-year journey of service to breast cancer Survivors and Thrivers.

 

Initially engaging with CBF through in-person talks on Breast Tissue Lymphatics, Renuka's volunteerism adapted to the challenges posed by the pandemic. Upon the suggestion of the then Program Director, she transitioned seamlessly to online presentations, offering valuable insights and facilitating interactive Q&A sessions. Raising funds creatively, Renuka demonstrated her commitment by rallying her friends to contribute on her birthday, resulting in a generous donation of $250 to CBF.

 

For Renuka, volunteering for CBF transcends mere service; it's a deeply personal endeavor. As a massage therapist, she finds fulfillment in providing hands-on care and empowering patients with knowledge about self-care practices for their breast tissue. Witnessing the tangible impact of her efforts, Renuka's dedication shines through as patients leave CBF sessions feeling physically and emotionally rejuvenated.

 

As we celebrate Renuka's five years of unwavering commitment to Carolina Breast Friends, we extend our deepest gratitude for her time, talent, and compassionate service. She exemplifies the essence of volunteerism, embodying the spirit of support and solidarity that defines CBF's mission.
