The FBCF is currently offering education grants for Florida organizations  that focus on education in one on one, small group settings or virtual technology to reach as many people as possible. The FBCF requires each grantee to conduct a minimum of two educational sessions during the grant period and each grantee is encouraged to provide or connect with a partner(s) organization(s) to deliver a variety of support resources as defined below.

 Support Resources:

  • Diagnostic testing
  • Medical treatments
  • Financial assistance
  • Emotional support for patients, their families, caregivers, and survivors
  • Transportation services
  • Home care services
  • Child care services
  • Nutritional guidance
  • Complementary therapies (e.g. yoga, acupuncture, massage, etc.
  • Prostheses, wigs, lymphedema sleeve, etc.

 2020 Priority Areas: (Must choose at least one priority area):

Educate women in the areas where they need to become proactive advocates for their own breast health through Educational Workshops (i.e. pre-diagnosis, urgency after diagnosis, types of chemo, types of surgery, etc.)

  1. Provide education to breast cancer survivors, their families, and advocates on life after or with cancer, including the “transition phase” from active treatment to survivorship.
  2. Provide education on breast health to young women and men with a focus on middle school, high school, and college ages.
  3. Create and provide a method of education on late stage breast cancer diagnosis that will help reduce the percentage of these diagnoses in the areas that exceed the state of Florida average.
