MISSION STATEMENT

Mission Statement: The Breast Cancer Charities of America exists to eliminate breast cancer as a life-threatening illness.  We bring together organizations representing all health and social service disciplines in the commitment to establish new and unprecedented levels of effectiveness in resources, education, advocacy and support.  BCCA is the only non-profit bringing the ‘integrated cancer care’ message to women of America.

We PRESS Forward in the fight against breast cancer.  We inspire hope.  We nurture healing.  We renew life. 

The Breast Cancer Charities of America.  We are the new voice of breast cancer.  We are passionate, filled with energy and a vision.  And we will not stop until breast cancer is no longer a life-threatening disease.

Our central focus is on educating, empowering and encouraging all women to become pro-active in preventing breast cancer and, if diagnosed, in surviving breast cancer.
We offer leading edge, state-of-the-art, research-backed programs that focus on all that women can do in addition to medical care.  Our services include nutrition, exercise, and social support all the while defusing the fear that often accompanies breast cancer.  And we provide help now with emergency financial assistance to medicines and medical supplies to women in poverty.

Join Breast Cancer Charities as we P-R-E-S-S Forward in the fight against breast cancer!

PREVENTION

Studies show that 8 of 10 breast cancers can be prevented.   Prevention—not just early detection.  Breast cancer prevention is the new frontier.  Excellent studies show that prevention is possible.

RESOURCES

Through education and resources, we share information to empower women and men with the knowledge on how to prevent, fight, and survive breast cancer.

EDUCATION

Our iGoPink Educational Outreach touches women of all ages; from our University Education Program that teaches students the lifestyle choices they can make at an early age to prevent breast cancer, to our Corporate & Community Educational Outreach where we empower women of all ages on the benefits of health and wellness with regards to prevention and survivalship.

SURVIVOR

BCCA’s integrated cancer care program supports and complements conventional medical treatment.  The program encompasses the whole person—body, mind and spirit.  While accomplished in addition to conventional medical care, we understand it takes more than medicine to get well and stay well.

SUPPORT

When breast cancer strikes, it impacts the entire family and all areas of their life, especially financially.  We have designed our Help Now Fund to assist with the basic needs of cancer patients in need.  The demand is huge and we limit our funding to past-due rents and utilities.  Our commitment: no woman will go through breast cancer without a roof over her head and the basics of daily needs. Accepting a post-cancer body is often very difficult.  But simple sensitive acts of care and kindness can help.  This is the focus of The Breast Cancer Charities Feeling Beautiful Again Project.
