Support Breast Cancer Awareness Month by Patronizing our Pink Partners!
In honor of October as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Breast Cancer Assistance Group of Monterey County (BCAG) is once again partnering with local businesses to raise funds and awareness to enable BCAG to help local breast cancer patients experiencing financial hardship due to their diagnosis and treatment.
One hundred percent of every dollar donated through BCAG's “Pink Partner” promotions with local businesses will go to help breast cancer patients with food, housing, utilities, transportation, and other daily-living costs. During the past year BCAG awarded more than $116,000 to 77 local women.
BCAG is encouraging the public to show their support for helping the local community by patronizing the following businesses, participating in their special events and purchasing “Pink Partner” merchandise.

Please visit our website to learn more about BCAG and how you can help to support our cause.

Fighting the fight, staying strong and positive has been made easier because of organizations such as yours. I hope to one day give in return and help others such as myself.
