The success of our programs and ability to assist women in Connecticut depends on the generosity of our donors. We thank you for support and continued dedication to the Linda Clemens Breast Cancer Foundation.
LCBCF donated funds to Griffin Hospital to purchase this minimally invasive biopsy machine. This is utilized on a regular basis to assist in the diagnosis of breast cancer.
Each year the foundation sponsors families of women who are undergoing treatment. Many women are unable to prepare for the holidays due to being in treatment. The foundation fulfills the families wish list in hope to bring holiday cheer.
Throughout the year we distribute bags to hospitals and infusion centers across the communities of Connecticut. Each bag contains items that are useful during treatment.
The foundation has established two mammogram programs at local hospitals. This program provides mammograms for women who are uninsured or under insured.
Lymphodema is often a side effect of breast cancer. Compression garments assist in the treatment, but the garments are expensive. This program allows women access to the garments if they are uninsured or under insured.
Through an application process or social worker/nurse case manager referrals, financial assistance for food and medication is provided to underinsured and uninsured women undergoing therapy or in remission.
Requests are received from social workers, nurses and various medical staff. The requests are reviewed and evaluated to determine on a case by case basis. The assistance provided to women has aided women across Connecticut.
