New Breast Cancer Resources Available Across the Province in April

canadian-breast-cancer-foundationThe Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation – Atlantic Region formed a partnership with the Purple Lupin Project and our Public Library system to provide current informational resources for women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer as well as their families and caregivers. They provided guidance and the money, more than $4500, to oversee this project in Newfoundland and Labrador.

The Purple Lupin Project ensures that all women who get a diagnosis of breast cancer receive a package of information that includes purple-lupin-projecta book, some pamphlets and other listings of resources and groups that women can access for more help. They will include a listing of these resources in the kit. These Purple Lupin kits are sent to all major hospitals and clinics throughout the province.

newfoundland-public-librariesThe public libraries are proud to be a partner in this project. We can provide province-wide access to these resources through our 96 libraries. We carefully choose the 14 libraries that received a similar package of resources. The fourteen locations are: three St. John's libraries, Mount Pearl, Clarenville, Marystown, Bonavista, Gander, Grand Falls-Windsor, Corner Brook, Stephenville, St. Anthony, Labrador City and Happy Valley-Goose Bay. These books can be requested through interlibrary loan so that women across the province can have access to these materials.
