JOIN THE FIGHT AGAINST BREAST CANCER.  Our Mission is to provide  education, advocacy and support for people involved with breast cancer. You do not have to be a breast cancer survivor to join. Membership is open to all--all ages, all stages, men and women, survivors or supporters.


















The BCNWNY, Inc. 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 a 501 (c)(3) organization 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, Book Club, lending library, 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
