What is the Lisa Boccard Fund?
The Lisa Boccard Breast Cancer Fund was founded in 2003 by Vincent and Terry Boccard in support of Vincent's sister Lisa and her fight with breast cancer. The mission of the Lisa Boccard Breast Cancer Fund is to provide funding for care that may otherwise be unattainable, for the women in our community to obtain screening mammograms and breast treatments if necessary.
We have been fortunate over the years to benefit from many Community Partners
. This has allowed us to screen nearly 1,200 women of which 60 have been identified with breast cancer. These women have received treatment and thankfully are still alive today. Together with our many partners, we hope to continue to educate, treat and heal many more women in our community.

Where will the services take place?
Services are provided at the Women's Diagnostic & Wellness Center at Broward Health Coral Springs. Our Center is composed of a highly experienced team of technologists and radiologists sensitive to a woman's needs. We offer the latest technology with a full-field digital mammography system. This new technology enables radiologists to detect and characterize suspicious or obscure lesions more precisely. For high risk patients, breast MRI is available to detect miniscule breast cancers that mammography or breast exams might miss.
How can I get involved and help the Fund?
We are very proud to be able to say that 100% of all donations go into the Fund to provide screenings and treatment to the women in our community. Broward Health Coral Springs covers all overhead costs for the Fund.
