   To Celebrate Life recently awarded $300,000 in grant funding to 18 Bay Area nonprofit organizations which support women and men with breast health issues.  Grant recipients are located throughout the nine-county Bay Area. These organizations provide emergency treatment, direct and diagnostic services, patient navigation, financial assistance, holistic complementary therapies and emotional support programs to underserved breast cancer patients.
