You Can Empower Women Facing Breast Cancer
Each year, over 250,000 women are hit with the overwhelming news that they have breast cancer.
After the initial shock comes the confusion of what a breast cancer diagnosis really means. Treatment often quickly begins which can bring pain, fear, and isolation. Then, the emotional roller coaster continues trying to find a new normal after remission. No one should have to face this alone, which is why NBCF strives to walk with women at every step of their breast cancer journey—giving them hope, help, and a hand to hold.
The foundation of NBCF’s programs include:
- Breast Health Education – Empowering women with the knowledge and tools they need to make informed decisions about their health
- Mammograms and Diagnostic Services – Providing free screenings and diagnostic services to women in need, using state-of-the-art technology
- Patient Navigation – Guiding women through the complex medical system and offering answers and encouragement amidst the many challenges of a breast cancer diagnosis
In 2018, contributions from compassionate donors enabled women at our partner hospitals across the U.S. to receive the breast health care they need.
One of those women is Maria. Donations from supporters like you helped save Maria’s life, as well as the lives of other women who would never have sought treatment.
“I did not have the resources and the money for treatment. I give thanks to God and to all of the people that donate to cover people like me who are lower income. I am very grateful, and I would like to tell all these people the importance of this program for women like me. They gave me the money for help, and I put everything in it because I wanted to live.”
