“We have partnered with the Breast Cancer Coalition for the past 19 years because the coalition gives people with cancer the help, support, and compassion they need when they need it the most. A community is only as strong as those willing to do their part to help those within it. Knowing our sponsorship plays an important role in supporting and empowering those who have received a breast or gynecologic diagnosis is truly meaningful.”
Jim Redmond, Regional VP, Communications and Community Investment, Excellus BlueCross BlueShield
“You have cancer.” Those are words no one wants to hear. And that is why the Coalition exists. We educate, nurture, empower and listen to those who have had to be on the receiving end of those dreadful words. Founded 21 years ago as a resource for those in our community, the Breast Cancer Coalition supports individuals touched by breast and gynecologic cancer, and advances breast cancer research.
Being involved in our annual events provides your employees and customers the opportunity to make a real impact in the lives of so many right here in our community. 100% of the proceeds are invested into our local and regional offerings:
Free Services and Programs:
Support and educational programs are offered free of charge to anyone who has been diagnosed with breast or gynecologic cancer.
Since 2003, the Coalition has awarded more than $850,000 to researchers in Upstate and Western New York for projects that yield significant medical breakthroughs in the causes and prevention of breast cancer, prevention of metastasis and cure.
The Coalition advocates and lends support to breast cancer relevant bills and public policies with local, state, and national officials.
