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.
