Pat HeadshotWe made history, again. The PBCC celebrated 20 years of education, outreach and advocacy last week with a rally in the State Capitol Rotunda. The event kicked off a special presentation of 67 Women, 67 Counties: Facing Breast Cancer in Pennsylvania, the PBCC’s photo exhibit which will be on display in the Rotunda through May 17. 32 women, all in pink, stood on the Capitol steps to represent the 32 women diagnosed with breast cancer in Pennsylvania every day. PA Secretary of Health Michael Wolf spoke of the importance of the exhibit and its impact on early screening awareness and Central PA Photo Exhibit Participants Debbie Freer and Alice Sanders shared their inspiring stories. Both the State House of Representatives and State Senate passed resolutions proclaiming May 7, 2013 “PA Breast Cancer Coalition Day” in honor of our 20th Anniversary year.

The special 20th Anniversary reception is just the beginning of the events we have in store to celebrate this milestone. Mark your calendars now to join us for special events happening this fall. On October 1, join us back at the Capitol to “Color It Pink” at the East Wing fountain. Come out to the Harrisburg Hilton on Monday, October 14 for the “Pink Party” evening reception honoring our Grassroots Partners and kicking off our 20th Anniversary Conference. On October 15, you’re invited to the PA Breast Cancer Coalition Conference. Help us celebrate 20 years of working to find a cure for breast cancer now… so our daughters won’t have to.
