The Bridge Breast Network
For every $1 donated to Bridge Breast Network, the equivalent of ten dollars in medical care can be provided. Our medical partners either donate their services or provide them at a substantial discount; allowing BBN to direct 95% of our dollars to client care. As a result, BBN can provide early-stage breast cancer treatment for nearly $22,000.
