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.

Breast Cancer Survivor, Nancy Mann said she really enjoyed herself at the program. “Now I know how people can get addicted to scrapbooking”, Nancy added. This event was part of the “Sussex Survivor Social” series, organized by DBCC as a social activity for breast cancer survivors. Through these events, survivors meet monthly to learn, volunteer, and socialize.  For more information or a schedule of upcoming events, please contact Connie Holdridge at 302-644-6844 or email .(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 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.
