Martina McBride’s Fan Club Raises $25,000
Martina McBride has always been pretty vocal about her support of breast cancer research funding. She released single “I’m Gonna Love You Through It” on Republic Nashville as a way of showing her support to cancer victims and their families. That’s why her fan club decided to raise $25,000 for a grant in Martina’s name over the month of October – which has been titled Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Several of her own fan club members are breast cancer survivors and took this challenge to heart, alongside the “Team Martina” fans.
“Team Martina” has been actively pr0moting and raising funds through multiple fundraisers for this grant, which will be named after Martina with the T.J. Martell Foundation. The grant has been chosen to benefit the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center in Nashville.
Martina shared with NBC:
“I’ve got a group called ‘Team Martina’ which I’m really proud of, and they have a grant for T.J. Martell in my name!”
“Team Martina” isn’t done yet! They’re continuing their fundraising in their favorite superstar’s name.
