A Daughter’s Gratitude

“My mom found BCRC as this incredible support group for her. Family can offer so much, yet you need to step outside and be with a group of people who are also going through this horrible time in their life. To be able to walk into a door with bright faces and uplifting spirits, you come in feeling low and walk out feeling better having connected with other people going through what you are going through.”
– Dariel Sidney, Vice President, Global Philanthropy and Ethos, Athena Cosmetics Inc.

A Lasting Gift

During the pandemic, the Breast Cancer Resource Center was forced to dip into its $250,000 in reserves to maintain operations. In order to ensure the BCRC can plan for the future and its services remain available to all who can benefit from its programs, is to build a BCRC endowment.
Your financial support and family legacy will directly reverberate through time and affect those who will be dealing with this disease in the future to find support and heal from the inside out.
