The IIIBs Foundation - Bosom Buddy Baskets

The IIIBs Foundation - Bosom Buddy Baskets We are a 501(C)(3) Non Profit dedicated to providing comfort baskets to women going though the breast cancer journey. The baskets contain items personalized to their needs & are given to hospitals, doctors & individuals via our website.
The IIIB’s Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to comforting women going through the pain associated with breast cancer surgery and treatment now. The IIIB’s, stands for Bosom Buddy Baskets. Our baskets are personally designed by breast cancer survivor & IIIB’s founder Carolyn Cole-Rodenburg, and hand assembled by the IIIB’s team. We are celebrating our 10th anniversary of providing thousands of Bosom Buddy Baskets as gifts to breast cancer survivors to ensure that no woman faces breast cancer alone. Our list of hospitals is growing everyday and We Need Your Help! We are currently providing Bosom Buddy Baskets to Virginia Hospitals including Inova Loudoun, Inova Fair Oaks, Virginia Hospital Center in Arlington, Reston Hospital, Prince William Hospital, Fauquier Hospital and The Cancer Center at Lake Manassas in Gainesville. We have also shipped hundreds of baskets to nearly every state nationally and 2 countries! Won’t you Help to Keep the Candle Glowing Too!

Our Founder (Carolyn) Story: Carolyn Cole-Rodenburg, a 11-year breast cancer survivor, is the Founder & President of The IIIB's Foundation, a highly recognized and respected breast cancer charity. She is an exemplary model of someone who has personal knowledge of the physical and emotional effects of breast cancer. Carolyn is determined to fully live her life dedicated to comforting and educating other survivors, their family and friends. She is a dynamic professional who easily communicates with all intellectual levels and shares her knowledge and compassion openly in an attempt to better educate about important issues faced by women following a breast cancer diagnosis. Carolyn's passion is to help women! One month following her wedding of April 12, 2002, at the age of 42, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a double mastectomy. She survived the life threatening disease as a result of her 1st mammogram she had due to the encourgement of friends. Her diagnosis and survival ignited a passion in her to devote her life to educate women about early detection and to provide resources and comforting items needed during the breast cancer process. She found that there were many people raising money for large corporations to help find the cure, but she felt the lack of support, emotional healing and comfort for those women who may not have time to wait for a cure. Eight years ago, Carolyn turned her personal tragedy into a triumph. In 2004, she was inspired by a dream to create The IIIB's Foundation. She left her lucrative corporate position in order to provide women with resources to help them through their breast cancer journey and to let them know they are not alone. Carolyn has a Bachelor of Science Degree from Radford University with many years in successful corporate positions and through her leadership, The IIIB's Foundation has received numerous recognitions and is considered a voice of comfort and hope in the breast cancer community. Carolyn's personal experience and connection to her community allows her to provide advice, helpful information and education awareness of breast cancer. Carolyn's life is dedicated to promoting recovery after breast cancer surgery. She receives correspondence every day from women thanking her for her product creativity and usefulness, personal insight, providing dignity and hope; and addressing their immediate recovery needs. Many women express gratitude that they did not feel alone during this difficult time and many just thank her for her passion to their 'cause.' Carolyn has been married to her husband, Mark, for more than 10 years. They have one daughter; Stacy, one son; Steven and four Husky Dogs; Shadow, Sierra, Sapphire and Savanna.

Mission: The IIIB’s Foundation helps to comfort women through the pain associated with breast cancer surgery and treatment. We are celebrating our 10th Anniversary of providing Thousands of Bosom Buddy Baskets as gifts to breast cancer survivors to ensure that no woman faces breast cancer alone.

Since then over 61,000 Grassroots unsung heroes have been recognized with Jefferson Awards - and each of their stories has inspired others to serve. Through celebration, we multiply good.
