Tennessee Breast Cancer Coalitionhttp://www.tbcc.org
The Tennessee Breast Cancer Coalition (TBCC) is a statewide, grassroots non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for individuals undergoing treatment for breast cancer. Our mission is to be the foremost advocate and provider for Tennesseans facing breast cancer through individual assistance, education, and legislative action. One hundred percent of the proceeds stay in the state of Tennessee. Our primary focus is individual assistance for breast cancer patients through our established Emergency Access Fund (EAF). The EAF provides financial assistance to individuals undergoing breast cancer treatment. The EAF pays necessities such as rent, mortgage payments, utilities, medical bills and insurance premiums of those who have become financially burdened due to loss of income and the inability to work while in treatment.
