CBCF – Atlantic Region awards funding to five Community Health projects

CBCF – Atlantic Region is proud to announce that we have awarded over $126,000 in funding, through the generosity of our donors and supporters, to the following Community Health projects:

  • Organizers of the Annual Newfoundland and Labrador Breast Cancer Retreat have received $13,125.80 in support of their retreat, happening May 2-5, 2014 in St. John’s. This retreat addresses the various needs of breast cancer patients and survivors who live throughout Newfoundland and Labrador. Approximately 180 women attend the retreat each year. For more information, please contact Paula at 709-368-0008 or via email.

  • The New Brunswick Breast Cancer Network Inc. has received $22,350 to host the All my Parts and Pieces Breast Cancer Retreats. Seven one-day retreats and one two-day retreat will be held throughout New Brunswick – reaching a total of 190 women. The retreats will offer physical, psychological and spiritual wellness speakers and activities. For more information, please contact Linda at 506-696-7604.

  • The Tri County Women’s Centre has received $6,160 to host Encore: Woman to Woman - Yes We Can. This program is a mix of light aquatic and land-based exercises tailored for breast cancer survivors. In addition to the exercise, participants may attend information sessions on relevant topics.

  • The Women Alike Breast Cancer Support Group has received $10,000 to host a two-day retreat for breast cancer survivors in Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. This retreat provides the opportunity for women to interact and learn from different workshops and to develop the skills needed to move forward and feel supported. For more information, please contact Joanne at 902-752-7600 Ext. 4922.

  • The Health Care Foundation in St. John's, NL has received $75,000 towards the purchase of the most advanced and highest performing breast specimen radiology system. This equipment will improve the standard of care to patients undergoing surgery excision or core breast biopsy procedures. Having this system in place will mean a reduction in the length of surgical procedures, more accurate assessment of the specimen, reduced time required for the pathology report and final assessment, the highest image quality and an overall improved standard of care.
