July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2021

Growing and Reaching More

See inside for exciting news about the launch of our new Mobile Resource Center!

Thanks to You!

Our Mission Bay Area Cancer Connections supports anyone affected by breast or ovarian cancer, with personalized services that inform and empower.

Guiding Principles 1

We place the needs of our clients first.

2 We empower clients by providing education that helps them make informed decisions. 3 We provide personalized services directly and through partnerships, across the continuum of care. 4 We value the experience, knowledge, and involvement of volunteers, cancer survivors, their families, and caregivers. 5 We are committed to providing our services free of charge.


“ Thank you, BACC. Your classes and special

programs were like a life support, especially during the pandemic isolation. Thank you for helping me to

live with, through, and beyond cancer.


“ BACC has provided a wide range of services that have assisted me in my ovarian cancer


journey. The variety of offerings and the kindness and generosity of the staff have made me feel a

part of this special community.

“BACC saved my life so many times. They supported me through all steps of my cancer journey. I am so

grateful for their services.


Dear Friends, This past year has certainly been marked with hardship and struggle. But what we’ve seen throughout the Bay Area Cancer Connections (BACC) community has been nothing short of inspiring. Our experiences have underscored how interconnected we are as a community, how much we depend on each other, and how resilient we are when we work together. This was a record year for BACC. In response to the significant challenges of the pandemic, BACC pushed even harder to address the new cancer supportive care needs of our clients. New and different services were created, including a groundbreaking Mobile Resource Center. All our accomplishments are a testament to the commitment and compassion of our board, donors, volunteers, and our staff. It hasn’t always been easy. We’ve had to adjust our processes and make difficult decisions. We’ve asked more from our supporters than ever before. But the result of all that effort is undeniable. In this report, we share with you the highlights of this past year. As we look back, we consider ourselves so fortunate – fortunate to be a part of an extraordinary organization built on a solid foundation, fortunate to have an incredible team dedicated to our important mission, and fortunate to see, every day, the good in humanity in the form of BACC community members’ readiness to help one another. As we continue to grow our programs and expand our service area, we remain committed to our vision for the community we serve — that this be a place where all cancer patients have the information, support, and access to resources necessary for them to feel nourished and empowered, both physically and emotionally. The pandemic has demonstrated that nothing is certain, but seeing our work laid out in this report highlights one clear message: BACC is strong and has proven that it is possible to overcome uncertainty by being creative, adaptable, and ready to find solutions to the challenges of our ever-changing world. Thank you for being on this journey with us. We hope you feel an overwhelming sense of pride as you read about all the wonderful accomplishments YOU have made possible. With heartfelt gratitude,

Meeting a Greater Need for Personalized Education With so much information available in today’s world, and layering COVID-19 and other health concerns on top of cancer, requests for help have continually increased. BACC’s Personalized Cancer Information and Education specialists fulfilled 263 requests, providing the expertise to help our clients understand and process the information needed to make the best decisions they can.

“ The statistics and information I received were invaluable

and really helped me navigate difficult decisions I was facing

regarding treatment and then monitoring.

New and Expanded Programs! Even in these difficult times, we expanded our programming to meet our clients’ needs!

our many wellness offerings. Charis Pontis, M.B.A., CPT, CET, a Certified Personal Trainer with training in working with cancer patients, helps our clients develop individualized programs to incorporate more movement for increased energy and strength, and decreased stress. Our Young Women's Breast Cancer Support Group was expanded to weekly meetings in order to meet the needs of the growing group of women attending regularly.


Program Highlights

1,966 clients served (13.5% increase)


Annual Cancer Conference goes virtual! We increased attendance by 67% when we made BACC's one-of-a-kind conference accessible virtually! It was our 17th year hosting this special day and nothing stopped us from bringing together renowned speakers, people in treatment and post-treatment, caregivers, and health professionals. We welcomed more than 400 participants this year. Educational sessions covered a wide range of topics These included cancer survivorship and health disparities in the age of COVID-19, updates in the treatment of breast and ovarian cancer, understanding cannabis, and cooking for your microbiome. Attendees greatly appreciated that we bookended the day with talks on the power of self-compassion and on finding meaning amidst free fall. Here’s what our conference attendees shared about the day: “With the pandemic shining more light on the disparities faced by vulnerable populations and

BACC Launches Mobile Resource Center Changing the Face of Cancer Supportive Care We have been dedicated for decades to meeting people where they are emotionally. Now, we can literally meet people where they are physically and geographically to reduce the barriers to access for everyone.


t our Spring Breakfast in March 2021, we were

thrilled to share that we had

purchased our “Little Blue Bus,” with plans to renovate it, and work with community partners to launch our Mobile Resource Center later this year. We’re excited to be piloting the Mobile Resource Center (MRC) with Zuckerberg San Francisco General (ZSFG) Hospital. In November, the MRC began going to ZSFG at the same time as their regularly scheduled Breast Clinic. Patients at the hospital who were previously worried about how they could afford to get a wig or a prosthesis, or were experiencing difficulty navigating resources online, are now getting what they need all in one place. We look forward to the increased impact we know we can make for clients in underserved areas and rural communities. We also partnered with Cancer Patients Alliance, Healing Partners of the Central Coast, and the CSVS Sanborn Clinic in Salinas to bring the MRC to Monterey County and will be forming various partnerships in the months to come that will enable us to effectively and efficiently deliver BACC’s free services to more people in need. BACC is focusing on scalable mobile services—starting with our boutique and informational services and scaling up to larger mobile units for in-person support groups

“ The Boutique provides so many services and items to those of us fighting this battle, and the people that staff the Boutique are so

kind and make the process so easy, the only thing that could make

it easier is if the Boutique were closer to the central valley.


“ We're thrilled to know that the new Mobile Resource Center will allow BACC to expand its reach to new

clients and new neighborhoods, helping to ensure those who need our help can get it. We love being a part of this amazing organization and are proud to support all the

good work this mobile center will do!

Working Toward More Inclusive and Equitable Cancer Supportive Care BACC has always worked hard to give our clients, volunteers, and staff a place they feel cared for, respected, and safe to be their true selves. We strive to take an active role in making cancer supportive care inclusive and equitable, and provide an environment that honors, encourages, and respects diversity.

Meeting Urgent Financial Needs of our Clients This was our first full year administering the Breast & Ovarian Cancer Emergency Fund (BOCEF), carrying on BCEF’s legacy of helping people with expenses to keep them safely in their home and able to get the medical care they need.

“ BACC staff is knowledgeable, compassionate, and supportive. When I came for

ciative of the BOCEF grant. It helped me pay for part of my medical bill when I most needed it since I had used all my savings during my cancer treatments, and my State Disability Insurance was not enough to cover my cancer treatments.

BACC helped me feel I was not alone during this challenging journey.

Increasing Access to Screening and Navigation

238 people




BACC continues to provide critical assistance to ensure that cancer early detection services are accessible to our low-income, uninsured, or underinsured community members. 238 people received 555 services, including clinical breast exams, mammograms, ultrasounds, PAP tests, and follow-up appointments. All clients received personalized help to navigate the medical system, including assistance in their native language, to ensure any barriers to care were addressed.

“ I thank BACC and donors for helping us get our breast cancer screenings for free, especially since we do not have health

insurance, and the tests are expensive. Thanks a lot.
