Cheryl Osimo, MBCC's Executive stated, "I feel so honored to invite everyone to support MBCC's mission of breast cancer prevention in person once again after meeting so many dedicated supporters throughout the years. Funds raised for Against the Tide are used to continue & expand our unique programs to prevent breast cancer. We collaborate with research organizations, both local & national & academic professionals, to identify & educate about toxic chemicals in our environment that may cause breast & other cancers. We make our webinars & educational modules available free. We also advocate for changes to public policy in order to eliminate these chemicals from the places where we work & live. We strive to change the legacy of breast cancer for future generations. People from all over New England & the country come to the Cape to support MBCC's work & the athletic components offered at Against the Tide & you can too!”
