Welcome to BCNWNY ...
In our vision statement and tagline, we use the phrase "from diagnosis to survivorship ..." and that says so much about what the Breast Cancer Network of Western New York is about. BCN support begins when someone gets their initial diagnosis and the fear and panic kicks in. What do I do? Where do I turn? Who can help me figure all this out? We have programs and fellowship for those with a recent breast cancer diagnosis and offer counseling and guidance as that diagnosis becomes treatment and treatment becomes survivorship. The BCN staff is 100% volunteer and comprised mostly of breast cancer survivors. BCN offers support and education that truly goes from diagnosis through survivorship and offers a variety of programs and services that are available and applicable to the entire breast cancer community including spouses, friends and family. We are local and every dollar donated to us is used to help people of Western New York.
The programs, services, and support we offer are vital and important but that's not all BCN does. As a breast cancer organization, we are committed to the demise of the disease. We no longer want to hear that 40,000 women in the United States are killed by breast cancer every year or that another 230,000 will be newly diagnosed this year or that 1 of 8 women in the US will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. BCN is committed to changing those numbers. We hope that through advocacy, education, prevention, and raising funds that can be donated to metastatic breast cancer research, we can be part of the solution. Know that when you partner with The Breast Cancer Network of Western New York , you are joining hundreds of local women who have traveled your path before you, you are supported by proven programs and professionals, and you are actively involved in the mission to take back your health and defeat breast cancer once and for all.
As a grassroots, community based Breast Cancer Organization, our mission is to support individuals with breast cancer, survivors, their families and friends. We are a diverse group of volunteers and survivors dedicated to providing Education, Advocacy, Collaboration and Support.
