Our History

As the reason became clearer they knew they had to do what no one else was doing. 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 establish, 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.

As the hearts of these two friends turned fear into faith their courage began to speak for itself. There is something fierce in the heart of a woman when all she loves is threatened. As cancer tried daily to terrorize them into giving up; strength arose as from the ashes and they battled together. The strength passing between them birthed Lump to Laughter. (About L2L’s name-Renee would continually say, “We need to help these women get from the lump to the laughter so they don’t give up”)

Our Branding: God led Renee and Connie to Patty Brady, a graphic designer who, after helping them design a logo for Lump to Laughter, doodled a female character beside the logo on the same page. For some reason she just thought it was cute and went along with the logo. It took only seconds for Renee and Connie to realize they and their stories would be represented by illustrated characters. And this first one would be named Grace. Over the next few weeks, Patty designed illustrated characters named, Hope and Faith and a community of Other characters who would be part of their journey on the website.

Grace will empower you to hold on to your Faith, and Hope will rise up to meet you. You are not alone; your world may feel out of control. You have more options than you know and never forget you are a victorious over comer. You will live and not die. From the diagnosis to the tattoo you will find someone, not only holding your hand, but also leading the way, Grace, Hope and Faith will be your guides and your support. They desire each woman to look upward, get in touch with the God that created them, find their point of purpose and listen for the beat of God's heart. They believe you just may find yourself in one of the characters. Grace, Hope & Faith will get you through this.
