The Bridge Breast Network

  • Published: October 10, 2012

The Bridge Breast Network is an exceptional ally for Texans in the fight against cancer. Over the last 18 years, the network has provided access to and information about local breast health services to thousands of low-income, uninsured and under-insured Texans. During that time, the coordinated effort of over 200 medical providers and community-based organizations has not gone unnoticed. Program participants have remarked to Judy Quan, a Nurse Navigator at Hunt Regional Medical Center, that they didn't think anyone cared enough to provide breast cancer support in their area. In a letter to the Network, one woman shared the following:

"Thank you for all the help and assistance provided to me by your organization. The immediate response, smooth communication and very efficient handling and care left me much to be grateful for. ... I wish to express my gratitude and appreciation for the commendable work you are doing."
