FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
Dear Friends in Prevention,
I extend my sincerest gratitude and appreciation to all who made donations in 2013. Your support helps us continue our work toward preventing breast cancer for future generations. I have been continuously inspired by the support we have received. So much was accomplished in 2013, and here are some of the highlights:
While reflecting on the past year, I cannot help but feel excitement looking toward the new projects we will launch in 2014. We look forward to launching a new program, From Industry to Home: Reducing Toxic Exposures. With educational materials designed to promote doctor-patient discussions concerning the link between health and toxic chemical exposures, this program will direct our reach into the medical community and provide much needed information about reducing toxic exposures in daily life. Be sure to read Dr. Raney’s thoughts on the program below.
Your support and the work of our board, staff, interns, and volunteers helped make our education and advocacy efforts successful in 2013. Gratefully, we look forward to your continued support in 2014 to truly make breast cancer prevention a reality.
Warm wishes for a happy New Year,
Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition
