This bench is dedicated to the memory of all those who have struggled with breast cancer. It is a peaceful place for reflection.

History of BCSS
In 1993 breast cancer survivors and family members of women with breast cancer recognized the tremendous need in Berks County for support and educational services concerning this disease. These concerned women came together as a group and Breast Cancer Support Services (BCSS) of Berks County was created.
BCSS offers support groups, resources, and programs for those affected by breast cancer. The women of BCSS extend a hand of friendship to those newly diagnosed with breast cancer.
