About BCA-CV

Breast Cancer Awareness–Cumberland Valley, Inc. is an organization composed of breast cancer survivors and individuals concerned about this disease. We know the anxiety and questions a diagnosis of breast cancer can cause, and we are here to help, to share our experience and knowledge. Some of the most valuable information and emotional support comes from those who have faced the same experience.
