The Coronavirus pandemic designed for the total annihilation of the whole human species. It has not only slaughtered the economy, education but also severed the health of the people with its deathly attack. The breast cancer coalition is no exception. It suffered extensive financial losses due to discontinued fundraisers over the year, resulting in lesser staff and cutbacks.
- DBCC executive director, Francesca Vogel said, “ while Covid 19 has stopped many aspects of our lives, the resolve of Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition has not stopped. Our commitment to supporting breast cancer survivors is stronger than ever”.
- Since 2007, BluePrints for the Community, an offshoot created by the Delaware community foundation has committed more than $17 million to serve the uninsured, distressed, underserved, and unhealthy people, providing them their full.
- Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition has acknowledged that the ravages of the pandemic have unduly raided the minority communities in receiving the breast cancer screening and survivorship support they are in so much need. Due to the fear of affecting by the virus, the screening and diagnosis have been suspended. Breast cancer patients are suffering from jobless, income loss, untreated growth of breast cancer, and stress from prolonged isolation. This grant would surely benefit them in the forthcoming months.
