Proceeds from the Shining Light Awards will benefit DBCC’s programs that increase breast cancer awareness, promote the importance of early detection, provide access to mammograms and cervical cancer screenings, and provide support and resources to women and men in the local community who are newly diagnosed or facing a recurrence of breast cancer.
