REHOBOTH BEACH, DE (April 27, 2016)–The Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition (DBCC) hosted an event for a small group of breast cancer survivors on Monday, April 25 at Brandywine Assisted Living in Rehoboth Beach. This was the second event held at Brandywine Assisted Living recently, and the Coalition is very grateful for the donation of space for their programs. This month’s event was a Scrapbooking Workshop for breast cancer survivors.
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.
