NAPLES, Fla. — Cancer Alliance of Naples (CAN) recently received a substantial financial donation from the now closed non-profit, Bosom Buddies.

"We are thankful for our long-standing partnership with Bosom Buddies. Although we are sad to see this organization close their doors, we are grateful to have been entrusted with this generous donation to continue assisting the breast cancer community.” -Neftali Feliciano, Cancer Alliance of Naples CEO

CAN says that the donation will allow the charity to continue supporting those affected by breast cancer, and explained that the funds will be used to:

  • Continue to support the breast cancer support group.
  • Continuation of non-medical financial assistance for those affected by breast cancer.
