Letter from the PresidentAs the Breast Cancer Alliance mission statement makes clear, our job is toprovide funding that will one day help doctors eliminate breast cancer as athreat to women’s health. That includes supporting cutting edge research,training breast surgeons in the latest techniques that advance care andimprove outcomes, and providing outreach and education services so thatunderserved women in our area have access to detection and treatment that cansave their lives.To assemble the resources that enable our mission, we rely on our many generousdonors, each of whom has a personal reason to support the fight against breastcancer. Some have had the disease themselves and know firsthand the fear,disruption and sheer physical toll that comes along with a diagnosis. Some knowbreast cancer through relatives, friends or co-workers and have witnessed thestruggle that goes along with overcoming this disease.People choose to support us in a variety of ways. Some give directly, through largeindividual gifts that underwrite a research grant or through small checks givenin honor of someone they know. Some people enjoy attending festive occasions,celebrating the opportunity to help others while embracing the accomplishmentthat comes with donating to the BCA’s many successes. Still others participatein BCA-sponsored or community events, preferring to take part in inspirationalor educational activities that focus on the disease and how it affects the peoplein our towns and neighborhoods. And many of our friends patronize shoppingevents and special sales given by our corporate and retail partners thatbenefit the BCA.Raising funds is one part of what we do every year. The more difficult part isdeciding how to invest those funds. Where will they do the most good? Is it betterto invest in research that potentially benefits all women or should we devoteour resources to breast health care for underserved women in our community?There is no right answer, but the BCA attempts to do a bit of both. We typicallydesignate 75% of the funds we raise for research grants and surgery fellowships.The remainder supports education and outreach services at local organizations.“We look forward tobroadening our reachand our impact.”This review of 2011 offers a look at how we raised critical funds and howwe allocated them. In 2011 the research grant expense included those grantsapproved by the board of directors in 2011 that were paid in January of 2012 andincreased the expense by approximately $437, 500. In future years the researchgrant expense will consist of those grants approved by the board of directors inthe current fiscal years. We are proud of our accomplishments last year, and withyour continued help, we look forward to broadening our reach, and our impact,in 2012 and beyond.Thank you for your continued support.Debbie Black, President1


Raising Fundsto Find a CureIn 2011, our friends and sponsors hosted several events, large and small, tobenefit the Breast Cancer Alliance. Here is a look at the social and educationalgatherings that encouraged donations to the BCA and allowed us to continuepursuing a cure for breast cancer.In the spring, the BCA Junior Committee, made up of area high school students,hosted its seventh annual fashion show and silent auction at Richards of Greenwich.The event, a fun look at the season’s upcoming styles, is the teen group’s topfundraiser, raising money to support breast cancer outreach and case managerialservices for underserved women at the Hospital of Saint Raphael in New Haven,CT. The Junior Committee also gathered more than 100 teens and adults to workout at their first-ever “Spin to Win” event at Sportsplex in Stamford.Junior FashionShow at Richardsof Greenwich2


2011 highlightsMen in Pink Partyat The Loading Dockin Stamford (L)Hands Acrossthe Avenue Walk (R)The entire community got involved in supporting our cause in May throughthe sixth annual Breast Cancer Alliance “Hands Across the Avenue” walk downGreenwich Avenue, led by Grand Marshal Dr. Dickerman Hollister, Jr. Beginningand ending in the Richards parking lot, the walk is a fun and celebratory way forfriends and families to honor breast cancer survivors, to remember those theylost, and to promote breast health.In the summer, we handed the planning over to our new “Men in Pink Committee,”who organized an evening of dining and dancing at The Loading Dock in Stamford.Dubbed “The Pink Party,” the social gathering was a rousing success, attractingmore than 250 people, united in their mission to raise awareness of breast cancerand provide funds to find a cure. Greenwich First Selectman Peter Tesei evenissued a proclamation declaring June 16th “Men in Pink Day.”The fall featured several events, including the annual BCA flag raising at GreenwichTown Hall to remind the community of our cause and to kick off Breast CancerAwareness month. This year’s flag was raised by long time supporters Paulaand Bob Burton and featured a presentation by Dr. Barbara Ward of GreenwichHospital, who spoke about new advances in the surgical treatment of breastcancer. The BCA also hosted a women’s golf tournament that combined fun andfundraising, and we were honored at several coffee and cocktail gatherings atvolunteers’ homes.3


6 th AnnualHands Acrossthe AvenueHats Off to HealthBenefit Luncheonand Fashion ShowThe highlight of our yearly fundraising efforts is our October Benefit Luncheon andFashion Show, sponsored by Mitchells/Richards and held at the Hyatt RegencyGreenwich. The 2011 show, Hats Off to Health, co-chaired by Patricia Burns andAmanda Davis, was attended by more than 700 guests, who all came to supportour mission. Attendees heard guest speaker and breast cancer survivor CokieRoberts, commentator and analyst for ABC News and National Public Radio,address the continuing need for active involvement in breast cancer advocacy.Throughout the year, many local retailers and other organizations supported ouractivities as well. McArdle’s hosted its twelfth annual Sales Days in April andNoble Salon once again supported the BCA through its “A Noble Cause” monthlongevent.Countless other groups raised funds for the BCA through sales events andpromotions - we thank you all for your tireless efforts in support of our mission.4


putting ourmoney to workIn 2011, the BCA awarded five research grants, two breast surgery fellowshipsand eleven education and outreach grants.The research grants funded innovative research projects at leading cancerresearch institutions in Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania.The studies we selected looked at whether scientists can find markers forpredicting which breast cancers will spread, whether they can find triggers thatcause breast cancer recurrence, and whether doctors can come up with betterbreast reconstruction techniques.Our breast surgery fellowships provided two physicians with an extra yearof specialized training to improve the quality of breast cancer surgery andreconstruction and to eventually help build a base of experienced breastsurgeons throughout this country. It is our hope that over time, women who needbreast surgery will have the benefit of seeing surgeons with the special skills andknowledge to provide the most up to date, highest quality care.“A Noble Cause” (L)McArdle’sSale Days (R)We funded a variety of educational efforts, including breast cancer resourcenotebooks geared toward patients at local hospital breast centers and printedinformation on breast cancer basics available in several languages. We supportedthe annual Breast Cancer Awareness Day program at the Greenwich YWCA.We provided financial support to programs at several hospitals and communityservice centers. Those programs offer free screening mammograms, ultrasoundsand follow up care when breast cancer is detected. They support mobilemammography services to reach people in their communities when they cannoteasily get to medical centers. Our funds also help pay for patient navigators toguide people through the unfamiliar medical processes. And finally, our moneyoften helps patients obtain ancillary services associated with a breast cancerdiagnosis, including transportation, child care, exercise programs, supportgroups, and language translation. Those services can often make the differencebetween someone getting the care she needs or going without.5


We choose our grant recipients through a very careful vettingprocess, supported by our knowledgeable Grants Committeeand our Independent External Review Committee. We want themoney we give to work efficiently and fund studies with promisein the areas of detection, treatment, or prevention. Similarly, weexpect the outreach programs we fund to measurably improvebreast care in our community. We are proud of the selections wemade in 2011 and we hope they will advance our understanding ofthis disease, move us closer to a cure, and ensure that women in ourcommunity are empowered to take charge of their breast health.BCA Flag RaisingCeremony atGreenwich Town HallFor a complete list of the grants we funded in 2011,please see the inside cover of this Annual Report.BCA LadiesGolf Outing6
