History and Mission: The Bridge Breast Network is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to save lives by linking low income uninsured individuals to diagnostic and treatment services for breast cancer. The Bridge serves uninsured and underinsured women and men in 16 counties in the DFW area.
In the past decade, The Bridge has served over 78,000 North Texas women and connected more than 10,000 with medical treatment. The Bridge was founded in 1992 to serve as the link between uninsured and under insured women and men and the life-saving care they so desperately need. Only through the help of volunteers and generous donations from the North Texas community is The Bridge able to carry out this vital mission.Status or circumstance shouldn’t be a factor in a woman’s fight against breast cancer. Cancer doesn’t care whether a woman is Asian or Caucasian, 16 or 60, insured or not. The care shouldn’t discriminate either.
Over 235 physicians in the metro-plex have graciously volunteered their professional services and 49 medical facilities have greatly reduced their fees to make such a large discount possible. Your tax-deductible donation goes toward lifesaving evaluations and treatment, such as biopsies, medication, and chemotherapy.
