BHCS Breast Cancer Awareness
Over 2,100 women screened and 100 identified to have cancer.
The Broward Health Foundation has many ways you can help show your support in the fight against breast cancer. The Broward Health Foundation is a wholly owned separate entity from Broward Health, with donated funds helping to support breast cancer services and other health services within Broward Health.
Visit the Broward Health Foundation’s website at www.browardhealthfoundation.org, where you’ll find these and other opportunities to help.
Lisa Boccard Breast Cancer 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. A women’s ability to receive a free breast treatment is not conditioned on her ordering any other item or service from Broward Health, or its Medical Staff.
The Lisa Boccard Fund has been fortunate over the years to benefit from many Community Partners. This has allowed us to screen over 2000 women of which over 90 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.
To be eligible, women must be Broward County residents. Each situation is assessed individually and eligibility depends on income and/or lack of insurance. Contact the Women's Diagnostic & Wellness Center at 954-346-5722 and mention the Lisa Boccard Breast Cancer Fund to make an appointment or for more information.
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.
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.
For more information, call Community Education Center at 954-344-3344 or Lisa Boccard at 305-773-5172.
