“BCC Rally is proud and gratified to support the important programs that have been selected for grants to provide essential breast health services this year. There is a rigorous selection process in place for grant applicants and Komen Charlotte continues to be a very good steward of the funds that BCC Rally raises for our community.”
– Marcia Myers Gainer, BCC Rally board president 2014-2016
According to current statistics, 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will develop breast cancer in their lifetime, which means this disease touches every family in some way. Programs like BCC Rally have helped Susan G. Komen to become the largest private funder of community-based breast health education, screening and treatment programs in the United States.
An Independent Grant Review Panel recommended projects based on breast health needs identified in Komen Charlotte’s Community Profile. For the period of April 1, 2017 through March 31, 2018.
