Nancy Borum is the founder of Bikers for Ta-Tas, a non-profit raising funds for women who are uninsured or underinsured for mammograms.
Funds are used to cover the cost of mammograms, educational material, comfort items for post surgical mastectomy patients and medical bills for women in need of treatment or prevention of breast cancer. Nancy started this organization ten years ago out of her love for a family member who lost their battle with this disease and for her Mom who was a survivor and now her sister is a breast cancer survivor.
Bikers for Ta-Tas has grown from its first year with 15 riders to over 1,300 riders and 1,800 participants last year and has earned to date over $267,000 to help women in need. All proceeds earned stay within Central Illinois. Bikers for Ta-Tas is an approximately 140-mile ride through Central Illinois but it is so much more. It is a terrific fund raiser and a way to build breast cancer awareness.
