Hero: “No one should face breast cancer alone” is a guiding principle of To Celebrate Life Breast Cancer Foundation, a nonprofit based in Kentfield. This volunteer-based organization recently awarded $300,000 in grants to 16 Bay Area agencies, five in Marin, that provide services to underserved populations with breast health issues. The group began in 1996, when several Marin breast cancer survivors held a small fundraiser, which evolved into a large annual gala. Over the past 20 years, the foundation has granted more than $4.5 million dollars and assisted 20,000 individuals. “We are making a difference in the day-to-day care of those living with the challenges of breast cancer,” said Jane Pallas, board president. Thank you to the heroes at To Celebrate Life Breast Cancer Foundation for their lifesaving work.
