Breast Cancer Network announces new program for metastatic patients


Fri, Aug 24th 2018 07:00 am
The Breast Cancer Network of WNY (BCN) has developed a new program to benefit women living with metastatic breast cancer. The metastatic TLC tote program is a free informational resource packet that contains pamphlets, books, comfort items, sample products and relevant information for patients in Western New York who have been diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. This program also includes an ongoing membership to the Breast Cancer Network of WNY and access to all of its programs and services.
The metastatic TLC tote program furthers BCN's commitment to women living with metastatic breast cancer. In addition to the totes, BCN also offers support groups, maintains an online resource page, and donates annually to metastatic research. Metastatic breast cancer is a stage IV disease that causes more than 40,000 deaths in the U.S. each year. It occurs when breast cancer cells spread to other organs of the body, most commonly liver, lungs, bones and brain.
The Breast Cancer Network of WNY, founded in 1988, is dedicated to the education, support and advocacy for all WNY breast cancer patients and survivors. This volunteer-driven organization, located at 3297 Walden Ave., Depew, presents a full schedule of support groups, restorative health classes, education programs and outreach for survivors and newly diagnosed patients. BCN is a local organization and keeps 100 percent of all donations it receives in Western New York.
For further information on obtaining a metastatic TLC tote, contact Marcia Heaney, chairman of the advocacy committee, at 716-688-9177 or email [email protected]. For information about the programs and services of the Breast Cancer Network of WNY, call 716-706-0060 or visit www.bcnwny.org.
