Bettie Jane Bryant
Owner and Director of Bettie Jane’s Center of Dance Art, Bettie Jane Bryant has served and continues to serve Frederick County for over 55 years.
In the fall of 2008, Bettie Jane was diagnosed with breast cancer, and had a double mastectomy at the end of October. She began Chemotherapy in December through March and had 28 radiation treatments in April and May. She is now on the 10 year plan of Hormone Therapy. As of this date, she is cancer free.
During her treatments, she, her dance students and faculty decided to hold a 5K Walk to benefit The Cancer Care Center of Frederick, in order to help local cancer patients in need. The 1st Annual 5K Walk in 2009 raised over $10,000. She has held a total of 8 walks to date generating over $95,000. With the support of The Cancer Care Center of Frederick, The Bettie Jane Cancer Foundation, a non-profit organization, was officially established in 2011. This foundation helps cancer patients in need in Frederick County, Washington County and Allegany County Maryland.
Our motto is “Working Together, Saving Lives!”
