JOIN THE FIGHT AGAINST BREAST CANCER. Our Mission is to provide education, advocacy and support for people involved with breast cancer.
2014 marks 20 years since the BCNWNY, Inc. was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) organization. The group began in 1988 as an offshoot of the Breast Health Advisory Committee at Roswell Park Memorial Institute. The original members, all breast cancer survivors, wished to form a group of volunteers to support and educate survivors and their families. Since then our membership has grown and our programs have greatly expanded. In 2010, a five year lease for our meeting place was the generous donation of James Caroll in memory of his late wife, Carolyn.
We are funded by the members' dues, fundraisers, grants and your generous donations. Our officers and board are all volunteers. Membership is open to all; you do not have to be a breast cancer survivor to become a member. Click here to join.
We provide monthly education programs, support groups, classes in Tai Chi, Yoga, Exercise, Zumba, Art and Book Club, lending library and computer center, TLC Totes for newly diagnosed, financial assistance, advocacy activities, annual education days, and social activities.
We are located at 3297 Walden Ave., Depew, NY 14043,
and are staffed by volunteers Monday, Wednesday and
Friday, 10am-3pm. Phone: 716-706-0060
