Anne-Lynn Gross Breast Cancer Resource Center

Anne-Lynn Gross Breast Cancer Resource Center

The Anne-Lynn Gross Breast Cancer Resource Center is located in the Women’s Center at Frederick Community College and provides information, resources, and referrals about early detection of breast cancer, conventional and alternative treatment, aftercare, and nutrition.  It also sponsors a support group for breast cancer survivors.

Anne-Lynn established the Resource Center in 2001 with the assistance of the Women’s Center and the FCC Foundation, Inc.  As a cancer survivor herself, she wanted to share what she had learned to help others in their quest for information.

For more information about the Center or hours of operation, call the Women’s Center at FCC, 301.846.2483.
 
“Women must be their own healthcare advocates. The Breast Cancer Resource Center is a safe haven for women and men to look at all their choices, whether conventional or alternative. Information is power when being proactive with the challenges of breast cancer diagnosis.” - Anne-Lynn Gross
