Ensuring that women with breast cancer have access to treatment has been critically important to the PBCC. Through the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s Breast and Cervical Cancer Prevention and Treatment Program, free treatment is available to uninsured and underinsured women in Pennsylvania. In March, the PBCC will provide a free online course for all interested in learning more about the program, with 2 free credits available to nurses and social workers. Would you or a nurse, social worker, or advocate you know benefit from taking the course?

If you or someone you know may be interested in taking this free course, please let us know! We would love to put you on our list to receive more information once registration is open. While nurses and social workers are eligible to receive credit by taking the course, anyone who would like to learn more about the program and how it can benefit women in Pennsylvania is welcome to enroll.

Knowledge is power. Empower yourself with information that can help save the lives of uninsured and underinsured women battling breast cancer in Pennsylvania. Email Jennifer for more information today.

We Take Our Mission Seriously

It’s the PA Breast Cancer Coalition’s mission to give breast cancer survivors a voice within our Commonwealth. We believe we are that voice in the medical, legislative, insurance and corporate communities.

Since 1993, we have dedicated ourselves to finding a cure for breast cancer. Our many acclaimed statewide outreach efforts, along with our grassroots partners raise thousands of dollars for research each year. The money raised goes to people like Dr. Craig Meyers, a researcher at the Penn State College of Medicine. Dr. Meyers recently discovered a nondisease-causing virus that successfully kills breast cancer cells in the laboratory. With the help of our outreach efforts and grassroots partners we can give him the funding he needs to one day conduct human trials that will hopefully lead to a cure to breast cancer.

We believe that anyone can help make a difference in the lives of those fighting breast cancer and their families. It’s the creativity and talents of people like you that can truly make a difference. We know that the only way to end breast cancer is to find a cure and believe with your help we can do so.

My battle with breast cancer ignites my resolve to make certain that our generation is the last to ever fear breast cancer. As a mother and grandmother, I thank you for joining the PBCC’s efforts to find a cure now… so our daughters and granddaughters won’t have to.
