2009 Marks the 5th anniversary for the William Raveis Charitable Fund, Inc. and the William Raveis Breast Cancer Research Fund. We’ve Raised more than One Million Dollars over the course of these past five years in support of those diagnosed with breast cancer and in search of a cure. We could not have accomplished this without your raffle ticket purchases and generous donations. Thank you!
In January of this year, The William Raveis Charitable Fund, Inc. has pledged $750,000 to establish the William Raveis ACS Navigator Care Program at the University of Connecticut Heath Center, Farmington, CT and $165,000 to the Navigator Care Program at the Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital, Boston, MA, in conjunction with the American Cancer Society. With the assistance of trained volunteers/survivors, this innovative program helps patients navigate through diagnosis and treatment. These programs are expanding to include patients with other types of cancer as well.

194,280 new cases and 40,610 deaths from breast cancer are expected to be reported this year.
Excluding cancers of the skin, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women, accounting for nearly
1 in 4 cancers diagnosed in US women.
This year, approximately 1,910 cases of breast cancer are expected to occur among men, accounting for
about 1% of all breast cancers.
Let’s give everyone a fighting chance. Thank you for your support!
