October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and WCCO is proud to partner with Hope Chest for Breast Cancer to support local individuals facing cancer.

The Hope Chest for Breast Cancer Foundation provides quick access to help for the most urgent daily living needs of local breast cancer patients. Their programs offer emergency assistance funds to help with non-medical costs such as rent, utilities, child care, and transportation. They also provide nutritious meals for patients, families and caregivers facing breast cancer.
