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...:)For More Info &
