About the Wisconsin Breast Cancer Coalition:
Since 1994, the Wisconsin Breast Cancer Coalition has been standing up and speaking out about breast cancer through legislation, public education, and collaboration with other organizations. We focus on policy changes that impact the breast cancer community, and our sister breast cancer organizations look to us to have their backs. From prevention and risk reduction, through access to screening and treatment, to appropriate funding for breast cancer research, we make sure that policies lead us towards an end to the disease. Join us and go “Beyond the Pink Ribbon™” to real action that saves lives. Visit to learn more about our priorities and achievements.

About Breast Cancer Recovery:
For 20 years, the Breast Cancer Recovery (BCR) organization has never wavered from its unique mission of helping breast cancer survivors heal emotionally by offering retreats designed to both inspire and comfort. These retreats are created and conducted by survivors for survivors and are for women at all stages of breast cancer – newly diagnosed, in treatment, and many years finished with treatment. We’ve had women ages 21 to 80 attend. The retreats are held in locations of natural beauty in the belief that healing can be found in nature too.

BCR hosts an annual education program, Sharing the Knowledge. This program brings together experts to share their knowledge of the latest advances in medical care and emotional health with breast cancer survivors and their families.
