Let light shine out of the darkness.

2 Corinthians 4:6

Who We Are

“B the Light” is a 501(c)(3) charity founded by Amber Melby in honor of her aunt, Brenda Plinke, who was an 18-year, Stage 4, breast cancer survivor. Brenda, or simply “B” as she was known to her family and friends, lived each day to the fullest and was a light to all who knew her.

During Amber’s own cancer diagnosis and treatment in 2016, Brenda’s grace and courage served as an shining example to her niece. Amber was also amazed by the generosity of loved ones and strangers alike. Their kindness helped Amber and her family through many trying days, and she promised that she would pay that spirit forward to help others in some small way during their darkest days.

“B the Light” strives to honor Brenda’s legacy by providing random acts of kindness and shining a little light for those struggling through a time of darkness.

Are you ready to be a light for someone?
