Breast Cancer Awareness Fund

Decreasing advanced breast cancer for women in our community is the reason this fund was started. Over the last year, 57 women received a FREE mammogram paid from the Breast Cancer Awareness Fund made possible through the community's generosity and caring support.  

Anyone may donate to the Breast Cancer Awareness Fund to help provide free mammograms for women in our community by making a note "BCA Fund" on your check.  Tribute gifts are also an option.  

Yes!   I want to make a difference for patients at Titusville Area Hospital

    How it Started:  In 1996 the Hospital was approached by Mary Ann Dalessio, a retired military nurse, about donating money from the Green Acres Ladies Golf League.   The women wanted to increase awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer.  Every year since, volunteers, Green Acres Golf Course and the Kalkbrenner Family have coordinated an annual Breast Cancer Golf Tournament and donated proceeds to the Foundation.  Contributions initially focused on raising awareness and helping purchase equipment for the mammography suite at Titusville Area Hospital.  In 2009, the volunteers wanted to set up a fund to help people with the cost of a mammogram.  On September 15, 2009, the first patient was referred to the Breast Cancer Awareness (BCA) Fund and received a free mammogram.
