Together, We Face Breast Cancer

Dear Friends,
Our breast cancer journeys brought us together and those experiences brought us to the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition where we work together to address the often overwhelming challenges of breast cancer.

Breast cancer is not just a challenge for those newly diagnosed—it is a challenge for all of us. DBCC is honored to be Delaware’s most trusted breast cancer resource, but our staff and board members cannot meet these challenges without each of you.

DBCC is very fortunate to have dedicated leaders in our community who volunteer and raise awareness and funds. This year’s cover shows just a few of those dedicated leaders—representing survivors, doctors, advocates, volunteers, board members and partners.

DBCC is a statewide organization with offices in New Castle, Kent and Sussex counties. Our outreach and programs also serve our neighbors in Pennsylvania, Maryland and New Jersey.

DBCC helps those who need our help the most. Our staff is there to help, on a personal level, those going through a breast cancer journey. They are highly trained in the science of breast cancer and work closely with doctors and medical researchers. They are advocates and an effective voice for all those in Delaware who are impacted by breast cancer.

DBCC doesn’t receive any funds from any national breast cancer organization. We are funded by community partnerships, grants and individual donations from people like you. We are proud to be an organization supported by the local community that we serve. All the money that we raise stays in the community. 

Please contact us if we can be of help to you. Let others know that we are right here to help. And please join us in the fight against breast cancer.

Warm regards.
