B the Light + The Well
B the Light is a 501(c)3, started in 2016 in honor of Brenda Plinke, or Aunt “B”, as she was known to family and friends.
Aunt B battled metastatic breast cancer for 18 years before she passed away in 2018 at the age of 58. She lived by the motto “Never Give Up Hope” and inspired all who knew her.
B the Light seeks to honor Aunt B’s legacy by coordinating “HOPE Getaways” during or after treatment. Our motto is “Offering HOPE to breast cancer survivors, one getaway at a time.”
During the COVID-19 pandemic, B the Light is providing assistance to survivors in a variety of ways. Some include financial assistance, help with medical equipment not covered by insurance and access to alternative therapies (massage, counseling, acupuncture).
