Last week, BCAction member JoAnn Loulan, hosted the 12th Anniversary Billie Gardner Loulan Memorial Celebration in Portola Valley, CA. For 12 years, JoAnn has hosted this luncheon in memory of her mother and in honor of everyone who is affected by breast cancer. JoAnn is a former member of our Board of Directors and every year raises vital funding for our work at her wonderful luncheon.

Thank you to everyone who made this event such a success!
