Mission: The mission of the Tennessee Breast Cancer Coalition is to be the foremost advocate and provider for Tennesseans facing breast cancer through individual assistance, research and legislative action
Programs: The Emergency Access Fund provides financial assistance to men and women in financial need due to inability to work and/or mounting medical expenses incurred while undergoing treatment of breast cancer. This fund has provided assistance in preventing evictions, paying utilities, insurance and medical necessities. The fund is designed to partner with other established community agencies to provide quick turn around funding.
TBCC is truly an organization apart from most others in that it is "grass roots" which means all money collected remains in the state. Volunteers are a vital part of what TBCC accomplishes as is the generousity of all supporters. From the largest fund raiser, the Celebration of Life TBCC Classic golf tournament held in August to the garage sale proceeds given in honor of a breast cancer survivor, every dime is welcomed and wisely spent. This disease doesn't want to go away but the quality of life for those who battle is enhanced by all that TBCC provides to the communities in Tennessee.
