CANCER. Specifically, breast Cancer.
We have all been touched by this insidious disease. According to the National Cancer Institute (www.cancer.com), breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in the U.S.
Sacramento is fortunate to be home to a remarkable organization- the Albie Aware Breast Cancer Foundation. CCAN is proud to bring Doug Carson, who Founded Albie Aware in memory of Albie Carson, wife and breast cancer victim, to share the story and the efforts of this wonderful local resource.
Albie Aware- Our Mission: "Provide assistance for life-saving diagnostic testing, patient advocacy, prevention education and compassionate support to local individuals facing or fighting breast cancer."
Albie Aware- Who We Help: "Sacramento’s leading breast cancer foundation, we provide immediate support to ANYONE facing a breast cancer diagnosis, going through treatment or living as a survivor. We assist with a very broad range of people and situations. Whether or not you have medical insurance, we can help with the cost of receiving diagnostic testing for breast cancer. You may need a referral for a plastic surgeon, oncologist or a second opinion. You may need questions answered about breast cancer and your treatment options. We welcome you and your family to meet with us at our Albie Aware Office to help you begin your journey, sort through your test results, look into treatment options or pick up some turbans and receive a hug. We are here for you."
Whether you have somehow been impacted by cancer, or might know someone who will be, please join us to learn how this Foundation assists those who are afflicted, and perhaps as importantly, how we might be able to assist the Foundation.
Please share with your neighbors and friends, but most importantly, please add this to your calendar now and join us for an informative evening.
