A Special Thank You to Corporate Sponsors
BCN would like to send a very special THANK YOU to all the companies and organizations who made donations or had fundraisers for us during the past year or so. Our programs and mission depend on the generosity of local individuals and businesses and without their help, we would not be able to adequately support the breast cancer community.
Here is a partial listing of the “Friends of Breast Cancer Network.”
Why BCN? Because Your Donations Stay in Western New York
We are an all-volunteer organization with one paid, part time employee, our Executive Director. Our organization is comprised mainly of local breast cancer survivors. The donations we receive are used to help the breast cancer community of Western New York cope with the illness "From diagnosis through Survivorship," and to advocate for the research and eventual cure of metastatic breast cancer. We are funded entirely by the generosity of local individuals, corporations, and organizations that share our commitment against breast cancer.
When you choose where your donation dollars go, please consider that BCN is a local, grassroots organization. We use 100% of our funds here, to help Western New Yorkers who are afflicted with breast cancer. And because we are an all-volunteer organization we don't have the high administrative costs that the large national breast cancer organizations have. Know that when you donate to BCN, you are contributing to support groups,eEducational programs, financial assistance, an informational TLC Tote program to encourage the newly diagnosed, restorative Health Exercise Classes, and a beautiful facility of networking, education, and hope.
