Breast Cancer Network of WNY

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.
