Survivors, advocates, health care providers, business and community leaders will be gathering in Harrisburg for the 2011 PA Breast Cancer Coalition Annual Conference on Tuesday, October 11 – and we want YOU to be there, too! Online early bird registration rates now available. If you are unable to register due to the cost, we have travel grant and scholarship applications available online as well to provide assistance to you so that you may attend.

Those who register now can save with our Early Bird Registration for one at $65 or our Bring a Friend Registration for two at $100! Conference registration is your ticket to all of the events of the day including speakers, workshops, exhibit hall vendors, the Pink Ribbon luncheon and more. Workshops offered will feature topics designed to appeal to a wide range of audiences, regardless of how their lives have been touched by breast cancer. Topics include Leadership, Advocacy, and Education; Advances in Treatment; Research and Clinical Trials; Breast Cancer Survivorship; The Mind/Body Connection; and Caring for the Caregiver.

A number of conference scholarships are provided each year through the Cary Massa Memorial Scholarship Fund. To memorialize Cary, an active member of the ABC’S support group of Carlisle and a dedicated PBCC Annual Conference volunteer, friends and family worked with the PBCC to create the fund to provide a means for those who wish to attend the conference but would be unable to do so because of their financial situation. Applications for travel grants, full scholarships, and partial scholarships are now available. Travel grant applications are due August 5. Scholarship applications are due September 30.

Don’t miss out on this exciting day! Join us on Tuesday, October 11 for the 2011 PA Breast Cancer Coalition Annual Conference!

     My name is Nancy. Recently You sent me a big box of all kinds of stuff. It had a beautiful hat and scarf that was knit by a woman named Emma. When I opened it I started to cry. It was the only time I felt like someone was there to hear me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your organization is truly powerful. Thank you again!
