The Georgia Breast Cancer annual retreat is scheduled for January 20, 2018. We are always excited about this Board requirement so we can plan out all the exciting things Georgia Breast Cancer will be doing for 2018.
This year, the Georgia Breast Cancer plans on working more with patients, and funding medical and diagnostic testing for women and men who have had abnormal mammograms and need additional testing. We will also be working with lymphadema patients, and working towards providing them with the sleeves they so badly need.
In addition to the good work we have planned, we are going to increase our Board presence by adding new Board members, and have our Board visit the community more often. We will also be building new partnerships so we can spread awareness, and help raise funds to assist more patients with transportation, tests, groceries, and whatever else they need to relieve some of the stress they have.
Georgia Breast Cancer will also continue its advocacy this year with a visit to the State Capital. We are working with Pfizer to help facilitate a luncheon, and support various bills that can help breast cancer patients.
Lastly, we will be scheduling more fundraisers this year and are always looking for donations of gift cards, cash and silent auction items. Feel free to contact Jennie Palmer, our Executive Director if you can help.
2018 is going to be GREAT!
Sheryl Cherico, President
