Who We Are

Breast Cancer Assistance Group of Monterey County (BCAG) is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization of breast cancer survivors who raise funds and awareness to improve the lives of local breast cancer patients and their families.

What We Do


We provide need-based grants to help breast cancer patients with their basic living expenses.

How We Differ

Unlike national breast cancer charities, your contributions benefit recipients in our local Monterey County community.

Our Mission

"We want to help other women with this disease as we would want to be helped ourselves."

BCAG Annual Bowlathon

Your generous participation in BCAG's 16th Annual Bowl Over Breast Cancer Bowl-a-Thon Benefit has enabled us to  fund grants specifically for young mothers with breast cancer.

Mark your calendars for March 2019!

   As I regain my strength and life returns to a level of normalcy, I want to thank each and every one of you for your consideration and financial support. Your check arrived when things were looking grim and basic expenses had become overwhelming. I will never forget this gift of money and the uniqueness of your organization.
