JJ Yeley is honored to partner with UBCF to provide public awareness and raise exposure for UBCF services.

The work that UBCF does to empower those affected by breast cancer is nothing less than extraordinary. The support they offer to women and their families brings relief and hope during the most trying time of their lives." Yeley has been personally impacted by breast cancer and shared, "When my mother-in-law was fighting her battle with breast cancer, we saw how devastating it can be and just how important UBCF's work is to the community. I look forward to running UBCF's car #23 this October in the 'Drive for the Cure 250 presented by Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina' and bringing maximum awareness to the incredible work of the Foundation."
UBCF Executive Director, Ms. Stephanie Mastroianni said, "Since 2016, UBCF has cultivated our relationship with the amazing NASCAR community.

This gives us all hope, and we all need some hope right now."
UBCF's mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of those affected by breast cancer. Seven programs are offered to women, men and families nationwide.
