Supporting Breast Cancer Resource Center of Santa Barbara

Oct 4, 2023 | Autumn Brands News

This October, we’re not only celebrating the fall season here at Autumn Brands: we’re also contributing to an important and impactful local cause. In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we’ve committed to donating a significant 50% of the net proceeds from our local delivery sales directly to the Breast Cancer Resource Center (BCRC) in Santa Barbara. This collaboration between Autumn Brands and BCRC isn’t just about raising funds; it’s a testament to the power of community and the shared goal of making a difference.

“We are thrilled to be able to support the important work and community resources that the Breast Cancer Resource Center of Santa Barbara delivers,” says Autumn Shelton, co-founder and CFO of Autumn Brands. “With the majority-female staff, our brand stands firm in its role as a neighbor, friend, and ally to the local Santa Barbara community.”

The Breast Cancer Resource Center of Santa Barbara

The BCRC stands as a beacon of hope and empowerment for women diagnosed with breast cancer in the Santa Barbara community. With a mission centered around advocacy and informed decision-making, this center offers an environment where women are heard and supported emotionally as they journey through diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship.

With a staff comprised of cancer survivors, BCRC deeply understands the spectrum of emotions and challenges that come with a diagnosis. While medical professionals offer cures, the BCRC serves as the extended family, providing unwavering encouragement, resources, and a sense of well-being. Clients can access a range of services, from individual support sessions and group therapy to wellness programs designed to rejuvenate the spirit.

“At the BCRC, we offer a hand to grasp as clients stare down an unimaginable path,” says Executive Director Silvana Kelly. “We provide practical support, guidance, and resources so women can cope with breast cancer and move from surviving to thriving.”

Since its inception in 1997, the BCRC has been dedicated to making the journey of those affected by breast cancer a little less daunting. Their holistic approach extends beyond clinical care, offering practical resources, a free lending library, and even complementary therapies, all without any cost. It’s a haven where individuals find the strength to face their diagnosis head-on and embrace life with renewed dynamism.

Why This Collaboration Matters

Breast cancer, unfortunately, touches many lives, with nearly 1 in 8 women being affected by it. For a company like Autumn Brands, with our strong female presence, the cause isn’t just another charity initiative; it’s personal. By partnering with BCRC, we aim to amplify support for those affected and contribute to easing the burdens of this disease.
