“People facing breast cancer or cancer concerns need extra support during this era of COVID-19. The National Breast Cancer Foundation recognized this issue early in the pandemic and has partnered with BGHP to help as many women as possible get needed breast cancer screening, diagnosis and treatment. Cancer does not stop happening because of COVID-19, so BGHP’s patient navigators continue to do everything we can to help women get timely access to care. Thank you to everyone who supports the work of the National Breast Cancer Foundation—you make a huge difference in the lives of women!” — Rose Gale-Zoellick, Executive Director
