WILMINGTON, DE (January 25, 2018) — The Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition, Inc. (DBCC) will relocate its Wilmington office to the Community Service Building in February 2018. The new DBCC office will be located at 100 W. 10th Street, Suite 209, in Wilmington. Visitors will continue to park in the Community Service Building parking garage on 11th and Orange Street when visiting the new location. The Wilmington office phone number will remain the same, 302-778-1102. 

The Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition was founded in 1991 as a small group of volunteers and became a 501c(3) non-profit organization in 1997, serving to raise awareness of breast health issues in Delaware through outreach, education, and support to help facilitate the early detection and treatment of breast cancer. For over 25 years, DBCC has developed and implemented programs tailored to the unique needs of different populations, including young women with breast cancer, African-American women, Latinas, lesbians, and women with disabilities. DBCC has conducted many educational sessions for the general public through corporate and community organizations to train women to become advocates for their own breast health. In addition, DBCC has referred thousands of adults for free and low-cost cancer screenings, and has removed barriers to cancer screenings and treatment by providing interpretation, transportation, and support services.

Today, DBCC remains the only organization in the State of Delaware focused solely on breast health issues as they affect the women and men who live here. DBCC also has office locations in Dover and Rehoboth which remain unchanged.

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. For more information about the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition, call 866-312-DBCC (3222) or visit the website at http://www.debreastcancer.org.
