Comments:
Caring In Our Lifetime was founded in 1997 as a means for the sales staff at Time Warner Cable in Myrtle Beach, SC, to assist one of its former co-workers who had been diagnosed with breast cancer. After the first year, Caring In Our Lifetime breast cancer charity auction was officially formed to assist local breast cancer survivors with financial needs. More than $250,000 has been raised over the years and the effort continues.
