I will be volunteering at the annual Johnny Cake Festival in West Kingston Saturday and Sunday, October 19th and 20th from 10-5 each day on behalf of the RI Breast Cancer Coalition. The Festival has chosen the RI Breast Cancer Coalition as one of the charities they will be supporting through the sale of johnny cakes over the two day event We are so pleased to be the recipient of these donations and to be able to spread the word about what the RI Breast Cancer Coalition does for men and women in Rhode Island who have been affected by this disease.

I am a 21 year survivor of the disease and have been involved with the organization for many years. The RI Breast Cancer Coalition is an all volunteer organization and a 501c3 non-profit. RIBCC organized in 1992 and has provided resources, education and support to over 20K women and men since. They provide prescription assistance, wigs, prostheses, lymphedema sleeves, and advocate for women on issues like employment, finances, treatment costs. Our mission is to ensure that every woman in RI has access to quality health care, most especially mammography screening and treatment if cancer is diagnosed regardless of her ability to pay. Visit our web site for more information about the organization.

Stop by the festival and say hello and support your community!
