The BCRC, at 55 Hitchcock Way, provides educational programs and serves the special support needs of women facing breast cancer diagnosis and treatment, or breast health challenges.

In addition to a free lending library providing resource information, the center hosts community lectures, peer counseling, support groups, and offers integrative therapies and wellness programs, all free to its clients.

The BCRC is funded solely through its fundraising events and devoted donor base.
