BACC – Development Manager

Bay Area Cancer Connections (BACC) supports people touched by breast or ovarian cancer by providing comprehensive, personalized services in an atmosphere of warmth and compassion. BACC is unique in its ability to tailor its services to each client, offering a combination of high-quality medical information, practical help and emotional support in a non-institutional setting. BACC complements the medical care that patients receive from their physicians and provides a safety net for low income, uninsured young women and men of any age at risk for breast cancer. Its programs aim to ensure that each person is connected with the resources that best serve his or her needs. BACC recognizes that every person touched by cancer experiences the illness differently and, therefore, continually adapts its programs and services to serve a broad range of needs. All services are provided free of charge.
