When Patrycja talked to her health team at UM Hospital about finding a patient to give her wedding dress to, they told her about the Brides Project.
“As soon as I talked to Barb – I think I got more excited than she was! It’s just such a great idea,” she says. “Now, I’m trying to recruit people everywhere to give dresses – my friends, at work. I tell them, you may as well do something with it, this way, you get value and the new brides get value, too.”
Diagnosed with cancer in February of 2006, Patrycja really understands the importance of a group like the Cancer Community Support of Greater Ann Arbor, and what The Brides Project is doing.
“Ultimately, the people are great, I like the fact that 100% of profits go to support – it’s just pure. Everything goes to helping other people,” she says. “I was fortunate enough to be able to finish school, get a good job, and get a really great dress. And I just want somebody else to feel the way that I felt in it.”
