Mission

Our mission is to enhance services provided to those touched by breast cancer in our rural communities. In addition to helping with traditional support services and complementary care, we hope to address issues specific to our rural setting, including access and transportation, physical/emotional isolation, and communication gaps between providers.

If you would like to participate in one of our programs, or know someone who would, please contact a committee member or email us at the address below.

We welcome community participation and input. Please contact us with questions or suggestions.

Current Services of BCSSC

Be Strong

A cancer recovery program, in cooperation with The Wellness Center, BCSSC sponsors memberships for breast cancer survivors, allowing them to participate in all center activities, including gym access, pools and classes. Benefits Of Exercise For Cancer Survivors.

Counseling Program

A cancer diagnosis can be emotionally overwhelming for a family. An opportunity to explore issues and feelings may improve the experience for family members and patients. BCSSC funds up to 3 visits to approved local therapists and counselors for family, loved ones, and patients diagnosed with breast cancer.

Uncovered Medical Expense Assistance

BCSSC can provide some assistance with uncovered medical or prescription costs associated with breast cancer treatment. Access is simple - all we need is a copy of the bill for an uncovered service, up to $500.

Transportation cost assistance

American Cancer Society BCSSC can help with the cost of transportation to treatment (gas cards), up to $500.
