The Vail Breast Cancer Awareness Group strives to ease the financial and emotional burdens endured by those in Eagle County who are battling breast cancer. Over the past 25 years, the Vail Breast Cancer Awareness Group – all volunteers - has raised more than $1 million because of the generosity of the Eagle County community. Each person diagnosed receives $500 for a “Day to Play” as well as a “Shine on Bag” filled with such things as a robe, books creams and soaps to bring some joy going through treatment.
Our donations to the Sonnenalp Breast & Diagnostic Imaging Center at the Shaw Regional Cancer Center includes funds for the purchase of various diagnostic equipment including a PET scanner, a stereotactic table for its radiation department, a 3D tomography machine and a GE Whole Breast Automated Ultra Sound System. Additional donations have supported the cancer caring house, “Jack’s Place,” a GAP Fund for those who need additional diagnostic tests not covered by insurance and reflective technology used to mark tumors in the breast before surgery is performed.
"To help all men and women in Eagle County who have been diagnosed with breast cancer."
