YOU Can Support HER? YOU Can Support HIM?

It’s simple! Take a look at our donor funding program and click on the category that suits you best and fund BCA programs. 

Thank you for visiting our website and taking the time to get to know BCA Ottawa. I do hope that you will join one of our amazing funding donor programs that will help men and women in Ottawa cope and live with their breast cancer diagnosis. Your steadfast compassion is truly inspiring

A lot is going on in the world right now, but there are still hundreds of women and men who still need your help. Every day of the year many women and men are diagnosed with breast cancer and have called us for help. They have called us from parking lots, closets, and basements.

Often BCA is the first call they make after their consult with their surgeon. Being diagnosed with breast cancer can be overwhelming and very emotional for many. There is significant fear, fear of hair loss, breast loss, and even the potential for loss of life. Newly diagnosed women and men need someone at the end of the phone, to listen, provide empathy and provide support. And that’s just what BCA does, every day.

Your donation today will mean the BCA will be there to answer the call for the next women and men in need. You can ensure that BCA will have the resources to meet these needs. Together, we’ve stayed strong. You can make our community a better place for newly diagnosed women and men and the people who love them, simply by choosing the funding program that is the right fit for you.

Let’s continue our work to take care of each other. Together, we will build a better, stronger community for all.

Pay it Forward Alumni Funding Program – Annual Membership

WILL YOU SUPPORT HER/HIM?

The concept of pay it forward is simple.
Do a good deed for someone else and then they feel inspired to do a good deed for another person and so on and so forth.

At BCA we have sponsored your membership during your diagnosis year to ensure that you received the post-surgical camisole (mastectomy), pillow from the Heartfelt Pillow Program, peer support and access to reference tools to make sure you could receive the help you needed.

Now, we are asking you to support the newly diagnosed by becoming a “Pay It Forward Alumni” Program Funder.

With a donation of $100 you will help BCA support another person who was in your shoes last year.

To become a “Pay it Forward Alumni Program Funder” click here.

When registering on-line, please keep your confirmation as this minimum $100 donation is your tax receipt.

If you don’t want to pay on-line please contact the office at 613-736-5921 where your payment will be processed and you will then receive a tax receipt either via email or via Canada Post.

This program is currently under review and preparation for its relaunch post COVID-19.

The Teena Toba and Walter Hendelman Legacy Funding Program

A long-time member, Teena appreciated and saw the value in the programs that were offered to the newly diagnosed. After her passing, her husband Walter has been instrumental in supporting BCA and its programs and has helped guide us in ensuring that funds could be divested via an I-trade account.

Should you be in the position that it’s time for you to start planning your own legacy, please contact our Executive Director at 613-736-5921 to start the process.

Another option is a legacy gift which is a planned future donation to a charity, given through a will or other form of designation.

It is a decision that each person makes in their own financial planning process, that takes into account your charitable wishes and values.

You can contact BCA’s Executive Director at 613-736-5921 for further information.
