The 12th Annual Lesbians & Friends Dance

The 12th Annual Lesbians & Friends Dance fundraising event for
Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition
(MBCC) was a huge success.
The dance party
included music by DJ Ann Rogers, complimentary
hors d’oeuvres &
a cash bar. A silent auction raised lots of $$ with
many fabulous items
like weekend getaways & more! Deborah
Shields, Executive
Director of MBCC, states “It is empowering &
uplifting to know that
MBCC & all of its supporters are contributing
towards a healthier
future; one in which our partners, friends,
mothers & daughters will
not have to fear that they will be
diagnosed with breast cancer.”

Please join us in MBCC’s NOT One More campaign- Not One More
Woman & Not One More Generation should be affected by breast
cancer. According to the Center for Disease Control, a woman living
in the U.S. is estimated to have a 1 in 7 chance of developing breast
cancer in her lifetime, as compared to that of a 1 in 11 chance in
1975. And Massachusetts has one of the highest breast cancer
incidence rates in the country. Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition
is a statewide grassroots advocacy organization that challenges all
obstacles to the eradication of breast cancer. MBCC educates &
advocates for policies & programs that will remove the cause of
breast
cancer from our environment from our environment so that
not one
more person will face this disease. Your support though the
dance
makes these programs possible. Updates to Come...:)
