Our mission is to support, educate, and advocate for individuals with breast cancer, breast cancer survivors and family and friend co-survivors. We are dedicated to ending breast cancer and the deaths it causes.
According to the New York State Cancer Registry, over 1,400 new cases of breast cancer are diagnosed annually in western New York. While we would love for that number to be reduced to zero, the reality is each year there are more breast cancer survivors in need of support and understanding. Our goal is to create and offer programming designed to educate and support individuals who have been impacted by a breast cancer diagnosis.
Who We Are
Our next Education Series Seminar will be held on Tuesday, June13. The topic is "Household Chemicals and Cleaning to Avoid" and will be presented by Jeanette Koncikowski of Breast Cancer Action.
The program is free and open to BCN members and non-members. Light refreshments will be served at 6:00 PM followed by announcements and the presentation. There will be a breast cancer support group conducted immediately after the seminar. If you plan to attend, please register below or RSVP to info@bcnwny or call 716-706-0060. Hope to see you there.
Thanks in part to funding received by the New York State Department of Health, we are presenting a 10 part Breast Cancer Survivor Wellness Seminar Series. The next seminar is all about Nutrition Strategies for Breast Cancer Survivors and will be presented by noted nutritionist Mary Jo Parker. Please plan on attending at our facility on June 1 at 6:30 PM. This is a FREE event for all breast cancer survivors. Light refreshments will be offered.
