REHOBOTH BEACH, DE (March 7, 2018) — The Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition, Inc. (DBCC) is pleased to invite breast cancer survivors and their families to attend two upcoming Great Escape TM programs this spring. Great Escape is a family friendly program designed for children whose mother or other close family member has been affected by breast cancer. The program provides fun and free social events and the opportunity for survivors, spouses, and children to meet other families who were also affected by breast cancer. 

The first Great Escape event will be held at CAMP Rehoboth’s Broadwalk on the Boardwalk on Sunday, April 15. From 9:00 am to 11:00 am families are welcome to walk the boardwalk in honor of all cancer survivors. Coffee and music are provided and the walk begins at 10AM. Attendees should meet at 37 Rehoboth Ave., Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971.

The second Great Escape event will be held at the Fishing Pier Pavilion at Cape Henlopen State Park on Saturday, May 19th. Guests are invited to seine on the bay to collect fish and crabs. The event will be held from 10:00 am to 11:30 am.

Both programs are free to participate. To RSVP please contact Connie Holdridge at 302-212-2947 or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

About DBCC

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.
