The Lyon Cares Foundation announced today that Albie Aware is the recipient of a $5,000 grant. Their mission is to assist with life-saving diagnostic testing, patient advocacy, prevention education, and compassionate support to local individuals facing or fighting breast cancer.

Operated by Lyon Real Estate, the Lyon Cares Foundation offers time, talent, and treasure to local nonprofits that make their communities a better place. Funds are raised through escrow and payroll contributions by Lyon agents and staff in addition to Lyon’s annual Golf Tournament.

“With this grant, Albie Aware can provide immediate support to anyone facing a breast cancer diagnosis. Specifically, these funds will be used to pay for screening and diagnostic tests, advocacy and medical co-pay assistance,” said Cindy Love, Executive Director of Albie Aware. “Albie Aware is honored to have been selected and supported by the Lyon’s Sierra Oaks Office and values this new community partnership.”         

“It gives us great pride to give this grant to Albie Aware,” said Lyon Real Estate president Pat Shea. “They are doing very important work.”
