Bulldogs Battling Breast Cancer
Bulldogs Battling Breast Cancer was created with the focus of fighting breast cancer through early detection and providing assistance to women who don't have access to the resources that can prevent or fight the disease.
In October 2003, Teresa Abbott was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of Stage 3 Breast Cancer. After her 18 month battle with breast cancer, Teresa and her husband, Jay, decided they wanted to help other women fight and give back for all the blessings and support they received.
Since 2009, BBBC has donated over $204,000 to St. Mary’s for our breast health imaging program. Their funding supported the purchase of two digital mammography machines, that was credited to catch cancers early. It has also provided free mammography testing and the purchase of needed supplies.
