Ringing in the New Year with Renewed Hope for a Cure

Posted By on January 16th, 2012 at 8:57 am | 6 comments.

2011 was yet another incredible year for the PA Breast Cancer Coalition. We sent 497 Friends Like Me Care Packages to newly diagnosed women across the state. Our 67 Women, 67 Counties: Facing Breast Cancer in Pennsylvania traveling photo exhibit visited 5 communities and touched the lives of thousands of individuals. 151 teams and 16 single batters stepped up to the plate for the Take a Swing Against Breast Cancer home run derby in July.

Over 60 women were assisted by our patient advocacy efforts.  Nearly 1,000 breast cancer survivors, advocates, health care professionals, and community and corporate leaders attended the PA Breast Cancer Coalition Conference in October. $100,000 was given to Dr. Craig Meyers at the Penn State College of Medicine to further his promising research into a virus that kills breast cancer cells that could potentially lead us to a cure. Grassroots Partners raised over $425,000 to enable us to continue our efforts on behalf of women and their families.

In 2012, we remain committed to representing, supporting and serving breast cancer survivors and their families in Pennsylvania. We renew our commitment to the goal of finding a cure for breast cancer now…so our daughters won’t have to.  Please join us!

  1. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is fantastic blog. An excellent read. I’ll definitely be back.

  2. Hi! I’ve been reading your site for a while now and finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out from Austin Tx! Just wanted to say keep up the excellent job!

  3. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

  4. I absolutely love your blog.. Very nice colors & theme. Did you build this amazing site yourself? Please reply back as I’m looking to create my own personal site and would love to learn where you got this from or just what the theme is named. Kudos!

  5. Thanks for every other wonderful article. The place else may anybody get that type of information in such an ideal way of writing? I have a presentation subsequent week, and I’m at the look for such info.

  6. I imagined these The best wow gold sales on Australia ended up amazing at to begin with. I even now love them, but I see the top starting to unfold even though I by no means unbutton the straps. I can see the elastic about the buttons becoming extra loose even though (as I said before) I rarely unbutton them. I think they’re a lot more style, and extra awesome then the classic The best wow gold sales on Australia (We have three tall pairs, so I’d know), and they’re also a lot more elegant in my opinion. The classic is much better for endurance due to the fact I’ve had a tall chestnut pair for two years that hasn’t ripped or something, and that i bring them quite often. *The pair of The best wow gold sales on Australia I am reviewing is TALL GREY BAILEY BUTTON.
