The Bank of New Hampshire supports many of the non-profit organizations in New Hampshire.  Recently, the Bank of NH awarded the New Hampshire Breast Cancer Coalition a grant of $2,500 to provide critical assistance to breast cancer patients struggling to meet financial obligations as a result of their diagnosis.  Typical Support Services Fund requests are for rent or mortgage, child care, medical co-pays, transportation and other necessities of daily life.

NHBCC gratefully acknowledges the Bank of New Hampshire for supporting our work and mission!  Seen in the photo below are Nancy Ryan, President, NHBCC and Leslie Simpson, Assistant Vice President, Rochester Branch.

Many of us wonder if exposure to some home care and personal care products increases the risk for breast cancer.  A study published this month (June 2015) in the Journal of Clincial Endocrinology and Metabolism suggests that women exposed in utero to the pesticide DDT may have a nearly fourfold increase in the risk of developing the disease.  According to the authors of the study, “This prospective human study links measured DDT exposure in utero to risk of breast cancer.  Experimental studies are essential to confirm results and discover causal mechanisms.  Findings support classification of DDT as an endocrine disruptor, a predictor of breast cancer, and a marker of high risk.”

Macy’s Grant Provides Support for New Hampshire Breast Cancer Patients

NHBCC extends its deepest thanks to Macy’s for providing a $3,000 grant for our Support Services Fund. The Support Services Fund is a financial resource for low-income and uninsured patients being treated in New Hampshire. We cover the essential needs for daily living so patients can focus on getting well.

Thank you, Macy’s, for making a meaningful difference in the lives of breast cancer patients in New Hampshire!



Fran Visco:  “Our health decisions should be based on our personal values and a high level of scientific evidence of benefit that far outweighs the harm we risk with any intervention. Because there always, always is harm.”  Difficult decisions come with a breast cancer diagnosis.
