2021 Against the Tide Event Results

Dear Friend,

The spirit you showed by participating in our virtual Against the Tide event inspires us to continue moving forward despite all the challenges we face!

All of us who have experienced cancer ourselves, or supported a loved one through their journey, know that there are times when we can feel as if we are swimming against the tide.  We at Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition (MBCC) are dedicated to eliminating the environmental causes of breast cancer so that future generations will not have to struggle with cancer’s life-changing effects.  Our Against the Tide events provide vital funding for community education and policy advocacy about the toxic substances that have been linked to breast and other cancers, and ill-health.  Quite simply, we could not do this work without you!!

You can also mail your pledges or donations directly to:
PO Box 202
Franklin, MA 02038.

We are deeply grateful that you continue to work with us toward our goal of cancer prevention.

With heartfelt thanks and enduring appreciation,

Cheryl Osimo Signature
