This October, BCGL is proud to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer has become the second most common kind of cancer among women and about one in every eight women will be diagnosed with this disease. It is important to use this opportunity to reiterate the significance of early detection and scheduling regular mammograms with your doctor. 

For more information, please visit the American Cancer Society website. 

Oak Leaf Manor offered a special opportunity on October 8th, free of cost, for World War II veterans to travel by bus to the World War II memorial in Washington, D.C. BCGL's own Susan Garber and Melissa Funk volunteered to serve as guardians for two veterans out of the ten total individuals that BCGL had the honor of sponsoring.


This trip was designed by Oak Leaf Manor, a premier home care living community, to honor the bravery and sacrifice of those who fought so courageously during World War II. To learn more about Oak Leak Manor, please click here.

Thank you to Oak Leaf Manor for coordinating the event, the guardians for their assistance, and all the incredible veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces for their service.
