Hannaford Supermarket Check-Out Benefits NHBCC!

The New Hampshire Breast Cancer Coalition, an all volunteer, nonprofit statewide advocacy organization committed to supporting and advocating for New Hampshire breast cancer patients, will receive point-of-sale donations from all New Hampshire Hannaford stores during the month of October, 2017.

During October, whenever you shop at New Hampshire Hannaford Supermarkets, you can donate $2 or $5 at check-out to the NHBCC Support Services Fund. This fund assists New Hampshire breast cancer patients struggling with everyday expenses such as utility bills, rent, and gasoline – expenses most of us take for granted.  Thank you to Hannaford shoppers and to everyone who donates at Hannaford check-out counters throughout the month of October!

On Sunday, June 25th, over 50 motorcyclists enjoyed a beautiful day while raising funds for the New Hampshire Breast Cancer Coalition Support Services Fund.  Thanks to all the sponsors, including Hannaford and Shaw’s Supermarkets for providing water and goodies for the water stop at Seacoast Harley Davidson in North Hampton, NH.

Photos from the event include volunteers Amanda Simpson (NHBCC Board member) and Anne Drawdy.   Phil Miles (ride escort for many years), Debra Thompson and Jack Thompson (ride organizer) pose for a photo.  Finally, two shots of the ride pace car, with a photo of Laurie, who we lost to breast cancer in 2012.


Breast cancer strikes approximately 1,000 New Hampshire women each year. These women and their families often find themselves in dire economic straits resulting from job loss, expensive medical treatments and high deductibles. The New Hampshire Breast Cancer Coalition Support Services Fund provides financial support to women who are struggling to pay the critical expenses of daily living, such as rent, utilities, car repair and medical co-pays, so they can focus on getting well.

You can help!

NHBCC invites businesses, companies and individuals to sponsor a New Hampshire woman in need. NHBCC will generously acknowledge your donation and you will make a meaningful difference in the life of a New Hampshire breast cancer patient.

May 20 to May 23, 2017:  Four members of the New Hampshire Breast Cancer Coalition attended the National Breast Cancer Coalition Annual Leadership Summit.  Nancy Ryan, Deb Smith, Amanda Simpson and Jackie Staiti attended plenaries, workshops and breakout sessions to hear the latest in breast cancer public policy, science and learn how the political climate in our country affects our mission and strategies.

Then Jackie and Nancy headed to Capitol Hill on May 23rd to meet with NH’s members of Congress and/or their staff.  Senators Jeanne Shaheen and Maggie Hassan and Congresswomen Annie Kuster and Carol Shea-Porter are fighting every minute to preserve the benefits of our current health care system and work to improve access to quality health care for all.  All four Members support funding for breast cancer research;  Rep. Kuster and Rep. Shea-Porter went the extra step to sign a Dear Colleague letter to House appropriators to maintain the Department of Defense Peer-Reviewed Breast Cancer Research Program.  Stay tuned for more.  It is very active in Washington, DC!

“River of Life” Kickoff of summer-long event at Nashua’s Millyard Technology Park near the Broad Street Parkway:  Saturday, May 13, 2017

This summer, breast cancer survivor and advocate Carolyn Choate of Nashua, NH, will embark on a unique and challenging kayak voyage to raise funds for breast cancer research. Carolyn’s trek is in honor of Dr. Angela Brodie, the woman whose work led to the discovery of aromatase inhibitors, a drug for women with estrogen-positive breast cancer, at the University of Maryland School of Medicine

Choate’s mission is to raise $500,000 to support an endowment being established as Dr. Brodie retires that will continue her research lab and further scientific research.

For details and a link to support Carolyn’s extraordinary adventure, please read this article in New Hampshire’s Manchester Union Leader:
