NH Breast Cancer Coalition: Helping those who need it most




Q. How is NHBCC different from a medical organization?

A. NHBCC is a statewide, grassroots, all-volunteer organization whose mission is to advocate for and provide assistance to New Hampshire breast cancer patients. Through our Support Services Fund, we provide critical financial assistance to patients struggling to pay the expenses of daily living. As a member organization of the National Breast Cancer Coalition, we fight to end breast cancer for all.

Q. What is Breast Cancer Deadline 2020®?

A. NBCC launched Breast Cancer Deadline 2020® to renew our sense of urgency to end breast cancer. This strategic plan focuses on how to prevent breast cancer in the first place and how to prevent people from dying from the disease. Breast Cancer Deadline 2020® comprises a scientific component, legislation (The Accelerating the End of Breast Cancer Act) and grassroots mobilization.
