Member Initiated Events

We encourage our members to initiate events. We offer financial support for those events because we understand how isolating a breast cancer diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship can be.


Event details will be communicated to BAYS members before the event with a way to RSVP. Not a BAYS member? Contact Us.

* These events are where BAYS members have a role and/or are invited to attend.
