The 20th Annual Advocate Program is sponsored by Alamo Breast Cancer Foundation (ABCF), a non-profit 501[c]3 organization. This San Antonio-based grassroots advocacy, educational, and support organization was established for women and men with breast cancer and for those concerned about breast cancer issues. ABCF is active locally and nationally (as members of the National Breast Cancer Coalition) in their goal to eradicate breast cancer in our lifetime.
The 1st Annual Advocate Program was held in 1998, in conjunction with the 21st Annual San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, as an educational program specially designed to address the needs of patient advocates and those who support them. The program for 2017 will include Orientation, Dinner, Mentors Program, two Educational programs and Breast Cancer Update for the grant recipients. 30-40 travel grants are expected to be available for 2017, pending receipt of sufficient grant funds.
The administration of this program is handled entirely by Alamo Breast Cancer Foundation. Their 2017 proposal will be mailed to a select list in June, and we hope you will support their program in addition to the 40th Annual San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium.
