Get Involved-Spotlight: The Breast Cancer Resource Center
The Breast Cancer Resource Centers of Texas (BCRC) is a centralized source of information, education and support that empowers those affected by breast cancer to navigate through diagnosis, treatment, recovery and beyond as active, knowledgeable participants in their healthcare. Since 1995, the BCRC (a 501c3 organization) has been answering questions, offering hope and providing hands-on support to thousands of women in our community who have heard the life-altering words, “You have breast cancer”.
