Blooming Boutique, open year-round, recently celebrated 16 years in business and specializes in women’s clothing, shoes, and accessories. This eclectic boutique is dedicated to making of all shapes and sizes women look and feel their best with head-to-toe fashion. New fall and winter arrivals abound, so it’s a great time to get some pre-holiday shopping in while supporting a wonderful cause. Blooming Boutique has a long history of partnership with Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition. In 2017, we raised $2,000 in one week and we’re hoping to go beyond that in 2022!
The Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition, Inc. (DBCC) began in 1991 as a small group of community volunteers, led by Maureen Lauterbach, who was committed to decreasing the mortality rate of breast cancer in Delaware. In 1997, DBCC became a non-profit organization serving to raise awareness of breast health issues in Delaware through outreach, education, and support to help facilitate early detection and treatment of breast cancer. The vision of the agency is to create a community where every person diagnosed with breast cancer becomes a survivor, and fear and doubt are replaced with knowledge and hope. The DBCC also supports the National Breast Cancer Coalition’s advocacy efforts to end breast cancer.
In 2004, DBCC partnered with the State of Delaware to manage the Women’s Mobile Health Screening Van program to provide outreach and screening mammography services. At the end of 2018, the program transitioned from the Women’s Mobile Health Screening Van program to the Women’s Health Screening program. The new program focuses on navigating patients to freestanding screening facilities across the state of Delaware.
Today, DBCC remains the only organization in the State of Delaware focused solely on breast health issues as they affect the women and men who live here. DBCC also is proud to serve our neighbors in the surrounding communities in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and New Jersey.
