On October 13, we will welcome hundreds of attendees to our PA Breast Cancer Coalition Conference in Harrisburg for a day of learning and networking. Many of our guests will be there, thanks to the Cary Massa Memorial Scholarship Fund.

Cary was a wife, a mother, a friend, a fighter and a shining light to those around her. She lost her battle with breast cancer in 2006, but Cary’s family, friends and fellow members of the ABC Support Group have chosen to preserve her memory through the Cary Massa Scholarship Fund. Since its establishment, the fund has allowed hundreds of women to attend the PA Breast Cancer Coalition Conference, free of charge.

Cary’s husband, Dr. Robert Massa and her dear friend Rosalyn Evans share Cary’s story and explain why they felt it so important to carry on her legacy in this way. We are grateful they have chosen to celebrate Cary’s life by giving to survivors across Pennsylvania.
