At the PA Breast Cancer Coalition, we turn awareness into action. To us it has never been about just wearing pink – it has been about gathering advocates, survivors and healthcare professionals together each October for the PBCC Conference, assisting those who have breast cancer and qualify for free treatment with getting the treatment they need and deserve, establishing the Refunds for Research program to give taxpayers a way to fund research happening here in Pennsylvania.
It has been about creating an insurance guidebook to help women navigate complex insurance issues and bringing our 67 Women, 67 Counties exhibit to communities throughout the state; motivating state legislators to enact legislation to improve the lives of breast cancer survivors. This is just a snap shot of what we do. In everything we do – whether it is answering a phone call or email or driving around the state in our pink van – we turn awareness into action. We hope to inspire you to turn awareness into action in your community as well.
