MILTON, DE (April 9, 2014)— The Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition (DBCC) will host a “Nurture with Nature” event for breast cancer survivors on Monday, April 21 at 3 pm at Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge in Milton. DBCC’s “Nurture with Nature” program is a series that allows breast cancer survivors to come together and experience nature by hiking, kayaking, biking, horseback riding or simply walking through a forest or alongside a beach. These outings occur approximately once a month throughout the state.
The Shutterbugs for Nature and Photography beginner program is free and designed to connect survivors with photography skills in nature. The program will feature a tutorial session and opportunity to take photographs in the outdoors. Participants will be provided with a camera but can also bring their own. Attendees will leave with a printed picture and photographs will also be displayed in the Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center and their website.

Those attending should meet at the Refuge office in Milton located at 11978 Turkle Pond Road in Milton by 3pm. Transportation is also available from DBCC’s Dover office. The program runs until 5pm. The event is open to all breast cancer survivors and no experience is necessary. There is no cost for admission but you must register by April 18. To register, please contact Lois Wilkinson of DBCC at 302-672-6435 or send an email to .(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 and their research efforts by helping to facilitate participation in local clinical trials.
