For 20 years, the Bayview IMANI Breast Cancer Support Group has existed to serve the underserved population by providing breast health care, specifically to the African-American community because we are so often ignored and/or undervalued as a human beings. Since its inception, our group has been a reliable source for breast cancer survivors. We have partnered with Susan G. Komen, Friends of Faith, UCSF Comprehensive Cancer Center, California Pacific Medical Center, Southeast Community Facility, FivePoint, St. Paul of the Shipwreck Health Ministry, City College of San Francisco Nursing Department to administer services such as door-to-door outreach, demonstrate self-breast exams, doctor referrals, breast cancer walks and our annual luncheon where we have informative keynote speakers, empathetic dialogue, local entertainment, gift bags, but more importantly, we highlight the breast cancer survivors who are with us and honor those who have passed on.

2020 is not the end of a formidable organization, but the last of the annual Bayview IMANI Breast Cancer Support Group luncheon. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we are not able to provide the community an elaborate farewell. Nonetheless, we still want to exit on a high note by offering memorabilia to commemorate our 20 years of service with signature t-shirts and coffee mugs asserting, “We’re shut in, not shut out!”

Additionally, the Bayview IMANI members wish to continue providing support to breast cancer survivors, especially during this pandemic struggle. We would appreciate your generous donation in the form of sponsorship at the levels outlined in the attached letter from our leader.  Visit our support page for more information.

20th Annual Bayview IMANI Breast Cancer Support Group Luncheon Sponsorship Letter

Today is my birthday and I am sitting thinking about how far we’ve come.  Amidst this global pandemic it has been bittersweet.  I am very thankful to be here today at 86 years old and am remembering those like my sister who have passed from Breast cancer.  Back then resources were not as widely available and there was such a stigma attached to it.  While we have made great strides, organizations like Bayview Imani thrive and continue because resources, support and education are still very much necessary.

This year would have been our 20th year and it was to be the luncheon of the century. Yet it seems that may not take place as we have had to shelter in place, and it appears that will continue to be necessary for some time.  Or we may not be able to gather to show our continued support for our breast cancer survivors and remember those we’ve lost.

We continue to do what we can to help and welcome your continued support and contributions.
