Wishing you a Happy and Healthy Holiday Season

The Bridge Breast Network Board of Directors, staff and clients

On behalf of all of us at the Bridge Breast Network, please accept my sincere gratitude for your generosity and continued support of our program.  Thanks to friends like you, more than 1,100 North Texas women received life-saving breast cancer detection and treatment services this year.  Your generosity provided hope for mothers, daughters, children and families as they struggle with hearing the words, “you have breast cancer”.

The Bridge Breast Network strives to continue making an impact on the community and lives of the less fortunate in the year to come. We hope you will join us in this effort and consider making a gift today that could save someone’s life.  Please donate today.

Angels of the Bridge Breast Network – a Story

I come from a state where there is no help. Your neighbors ignore you. Everyone keeps to themselves. Moving to Texas was like moving to another country, but the old mentality was still with me.

I was volunteering with a nonprofit raising money for breast cancer research, and I was given things to post periodically. One of them was the importance of the self-check. I had never done one before, so to not be a hypocrite, I did.

I found a lump.    Read More

Far from home, Nepali Immigrant Faces Breast Cancer

Dallas Morning News - Oct 6 - It started as a small lump, nothing too alarming.

But this spring, when it started to grow, Nalina Shah began to worry. The 29-year old Nepali immigrant hadn’t been to the doctor since she was a little girl. She had an hourly job at a spa giving waxes and facials, but no health insurance. And being so young, why would she need a mammogram?     Read the Full Article

A Selfie for Service

Sept 10 - Many of us do not realize our own strength until we are faced with an obstacle so great, so seemingly insurmountable, that we are forced to dig deep and reveal our superhuman might to the world.

Sheila Taylor, VP of The Bridge Breast Network Board of Directors, understands this process all too well. This is why Family Dollar is recognizing this Lewisville, Texas native as the Show Off Your Selfie winner, a contest aimed at finding and highlighting one of EBONY’s most inspirational readers.

Build a Bridge, Save a Life

I met you and was inspired by you when you came to my Wylie Rotary Club last year. I have shared information about The Bridge to several people.

And... I was diagnosed with Stage 0 breast cancer in April. My annual mammogram caught it and I have to say the radiologist at the Baylor Garland Breast Center went above and beyond anything I have seen to get an accurate diagnosis for me. My films went to seven different specialists around the country. I had my surgery on May 27th and today I ring the bell at my cancer center signifying that today is my last radiation treatment!

I am blessed to have awesome insurance and this whole event cost me $2000, which I had the funds for on my Flexible Spending Account. Your organization blesses so many women with your services. I want to encourage you and your staff as I cannot imagine going through cancer without resources. Keep up the good work and know that you are adding jewels to your heavenly crowns each and every day!

I received a letter that my examination indicated need for further evaluation… What if I had cancer... and then how could I get further testing when I did not have insurance or much money... I had been laid off from my job a year prior and had only been able to find a part time job. Barbara Quast, the Oncology Nurse Navigator… let me know about your program… In the end the testing came back with good news. Thank you so much Bridge Breast Network and thank you so much Barbara Quast.
