MILTON, DE (January 4, 2016) – The Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition (DBCC) is pleased to announce that Fun and Festive Jewelry made a $500 donation to the Coalition on December 31 to support local breast cancer programs and services in Sussex County. “Fun and Festive” is a jewelry making store in the Milton Mercantile. The owner and Mayor of Milton, Marion Jones and her sister, Kathy Jones offered pink beaded bracelets for sale through the month of October for a donation. 100% of the proceeds of the pink bracelets were donated. Fun and Festive is located in the Milton Mercantile, 109 Union Street, Milton, DE. The proceeds will benefit DBCC’s programs that increase breast cancer awareness, promote the importance of early detection, provide access to mammograms and bilingual screening navigators, and offer support and resources to women and men in the local community who are newly diagnosed or facing a recurrence of breast cancer.
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.
