REHOBOTH BEACH, DE (January 5, 2018) — The Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition, Inc. (DBCC) is pleased to invite breast cancer survivors and their families to attend the Great Escape TM program at Escape Rehoboth on Sunday, January 21 from 2-4pm. Escape Rehoboth is a fun, interactive game taking place at 20245 Bay Vista Rd., Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971.
The Patricia Shea Dillon Fund Great Escape is a program for children whose mother or other close family member has been affected by breast cancer. Family events bring parents, children and/or other close family members together for fun and free social events. The program provides the opportunity for survivors, spouses, and children to meet other families who were also affected by breast cancer. Scholarships and educational materials are also provided as needed.
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 vision 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 and those with little or no insurance to receive free or reduced-cost care.
DBCC also supports the National Breast Cancer Coalition and their research efforts by helping to facilitate participation in local clinical trials. All funds raised for DBCC support programs in Delaware and the neighboring areas in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and New Jersey.
