LEWES, DE (August 30, 2016)–The Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition (DBCC) will host a free event for breast cancer survivors on Thursday, September 22 from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. at Painting with a Twist in Lewes. This networking workshop is part of the “Sussex Survivor Social” series and is open to newly diagnosed patients as well as survivors of breast cancer. Attendees meet regularly to socialize, learn a craft, volunteer with an event or get educated about a health topic.
The Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition is a 501(c)(3) organization offering statewide programs and services of education, outreach, and early detection and treatment of breast cancer. Its mission is to create a community where every person diagnosed with breast cancer is a survivor, and fear and doubt are replaced with knowledge and hope.
Headquartered in Wilmington with offices in Sussex and Kent Counties, DBCC’s programs reach diverse communities to deliver messages that address their unique concerns about breast cancer and early detection. Recognizing the barriers of language, culture, and economics, DBCC trains community advocates to educate and encourage women to take responsibility for breast health. DBCC helps women with low incomes or those with little or no insurance to receive free or reduced-cost care. DBCC also supports the National Breast Cancer Coalition’s advocacy efforts to end breast cancer. All funds raised for DBCC support programs in Delaware and the neighboring areas in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and New Jersey.
