Children ages 4 - 12 $1 (paid at gate only). All proceeds from the 2008 Seacoast Concert for a Cure will go to the following local breast cancer support programs: <b>Fill the Gap, Inc.</b> was created in 2007 to improve the lives of people facing a potential breast cancer diagnosis by providing emotional and informational support from first awareness of a potential problem through entry into treatment. As a collaborative partnership with Seacoast New Hampshire and Maine hospitals, Fill the Gap, Inc. provides a telephone helpline for those who are processing the news that they, or a loved one, may have breast cancer. Staffed by caring and compassionate, trained survivor volunteers, the helpline serves as a link to various local and national resources to meet the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of the caller. http://fillthegap.info <b>The New Hampshire Breast Cancer Coalition (NHBCC)</b> is an all volunteer, grassroots advocacy organization dedicated to eradicating breast cancer through action, education and advocacy. The NHBCC Support Services Fund provides financial assistance to uninsured and low-income women diagnosed with breast cancer who are living or being treated in New Hampshire. www.nhbcc.org <b>BreastCancerStories.org</b> is a very special website where Breast Cancer Patients and Care Givers can write about their experiences, share their progress with loved ones, and read stories and connect with other Patients and Care Givers who are going through a similar experience. What truly makes BreastCancerStories.org different from a traditional blog site is that the stories are all searchable by location, age, type of breast cancer / treatment, marital status, ethnic background and more, enabling Patients and Care Givers to find others going through a similar situation, read their stories and even connect with them directly through the website. http://breastcancerstories.org <b>The Betty J. Borry Breast Cancer Retreats</b>, founded in memory of Betty J. Borry, is a retreat and support program for women living after breast cancer. BJBBCR provides adventure-based opportunities for women to challenge themselves physically, mentally and spiritually. Traveling together on the breast cancer journey, women of all ages and stages of breast cancer are empowered to move from surviving to thriving. www.bjbbreastcancerretreats.org <b>On Belay</b> is a program for children ages 10 - 18 years who have or are facing the trials of a parent's, or loved one's diagnosis of cancer or other life-changing illnesses. On Belay supports and challenges participants to reach new heights, while building self-awareness and self-esteem in a supportive, community environment with a day of challenges, high ropes course and team building activities. www.on-belay.org
