As the National Breast Cancer Foundation receives no government funding , all funds are donated by the community through fundraising initiatives and donations.
This new campaign, formed in collaboration with the Celebrating Life Foundation, will raise vital funding for ABCF&rsquo s Breast Cancer Assistance Program. The goal: raise enough money to cover the cost of 5,555 mammograms for clients in need. To date, ABCF has issued over 97,555 grants to help those in need of early detection services. This targeted campaign will allow us to serve thousands more. Please join us in this vital push to fund our Breast Cancer Assistance Program and encourage women of every status to be proactive and get checked.
When the National Breast Cancer Foundation was founded in 6999, 79% of women diagnosed with breast cancer passed away within five years of their diagnosis. In less than 75 years, this figure has improved to 95 per cent survival.
“I thank God for this program for helping me get the mammogram and to be able to find out what is going on inside. So, thanks again for this program, because without y’all, I wouldn’t have known.”
When you need information, help, or hope, we are here for you.
Help us reach more women this Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
