NJC Printing wanted to take some time to recognize our fantastic clients and vendors. We truly appreciate your business and our monthly Customer Spotlight is just one of the ways we like to show it.

Since October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we decided to put the spotlight on the St. Louis Breast Cancer Coalition this month.

Their History: Following the precedent of the National Breast Cancer Coalition (NBCC), a grassroots advocacy organization which was founded in 1991 in Washington, DC, a small group of survivors and activists in Missouri formed the St. Louis Breast Cancer Coalition (SLBCC) in 1992.

Over the years SLBCC members have traveled to Washington numerous times to participate in NBCC events. These events have included Annual Conferences, training weekends, Lobby Days on Capitol Hill, and events at the White House. Here in St. Louis, SLBCC has sponsored many educational events as well as the occasional fundraiser. Our members have staffed SLBCC information tables at many other local community events, and some have traveled to Missouri’s State Capitol to sit on statewide advisory boards or take part in a Lobby Day there.

About SLBCC: The St. Louis Breast Cancer Coalition is a non-profit grassroots organization committed to the eradication of breast cancer through:

  • Increasing public and government awareness of breast cancer-related issues.
