Book club to meet
As the countdown continues, today highlights the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition for its help in fighting against breast cancer.
More than 150,000 people are diagnosed with breast cancer every year. The mission of the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition mission is to empower the community by raising awareness of breast health issues through outreach, education and support services, in order to facilitate the early detection and treatment of breast cancer. DBCC remains the only organization in the state of Delaware focused solely on breast health issues as they affect the women and men who live here.
