Lump to Laughter was created by two friends, Renee Ballard, and Connie Hill, who walked through the journey of breast cancer together. Early in the process, it was decided they were turning this trial into triumph. There was no mistake in the timing of this disease hitting each woman within 6 weeks of the other. That alone convinced them they had to do something with this experience. As the reason became clearer they knew they had to provide emotional and spiritual support to women diagnosed with breast cancer. To do this they would pour out their heart and souls and share their emotional stories about their own journey through breast cancer. Exposing the emotions of a woman undergoing breast cancer assisted women with their own diagnosis and other women began sharing their inspirational stories. A website and Share Your Story forum was established, support groups, hope packages were created to send inspirational and faith centered items for those newly diagnosed and finally the creation of the Angel Fund, to provide financial relief to those in active treatment who had a need. With each program added over the years, one common theme is present; Sharing Hope and God’s love to those diagnosed.
