Breast Cancer Supportive Care Foundation (BCSCF) was established in 2003 and is a federally registered charity, located here in Calgary. The mission of BCSCF is to enable breast cancer patients to thrive from diagnosis through treatment and beyond. Led by a health care team specializing in breast cancer care, BCSCF provides community based programs to support the recovery of breast cancer patients with the psychosocial issues, and delayed physical side effects arising from having had cancer, surgery and treatment.
Funds raised through the 2009 Oilympics Hockey Tournament will go directly to supporting breast cancer patients return to full and vibrant lives in their families and communities.
Brown Bagging for Calgary's Kids (BB4CK) was established as a lunch program in 1990 under the name of the Brown Bagging for Calgary Street Kids Society. Following recent findings by the Feeding Calgary's Children Initiative - that almost 30,000 children and youth in Calgary go hungry while in school - the mandate has changed to include all children and youth, whether on the streets or in school.
