If you’ve walked through downtown Princeton within the past few weeks, you may have noticed some pink bows displayed inside and outside of local businesses. Those bows are part of the Breast Cancer Resource Center’s mission to “paint the town pink” in October to honor women and families going through breast cancer, and remind them that their fellow Princetonians stand in solidarity with them. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but at the BCRC, every day is dedicated to supporting and empowering breast cancer patients and survivors.
The Breast Cancer Resource Center of YWCA Princeton is a unique, non-clinical environment that offers support for breast cancer patients, survivors, and family members. Whether you need to throw some right hooks at Director PaulaFlory’s office punching bag, channel your creativity in a healing arts workshop, or speak freely in a safe space, the compassionate and professional staff at the BCRC are here for you. All of the programs offered by the BCRC are free of charge, which includes transportation to treatment, a fitting boutique for wigs, bras, and prosthesis, head shaving parties, and workshops dedicated to mental and physical health. The center is located on a peaceful nature preserve and operates in a beautifully renovated home that feels like you are visiting a friend. At the BCRC, you are treated like family by staff who are dedicated to enabling you to live with, through, and beyond breast cancer.
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we hope that you will consider making a donation to the Breast Cancer Resource Center to keep these important programs accessible to women in need.
