Breast Cancer Charities of America (BCCA) exists for one reason—to eliminate breast cancer as 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.

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. We lead the way with our Vitamin D Promise program.
Through the Non-Invasive Breast Cancer Research Fund we underwrite less-toxic, minimally-invasive diagnosis and treatment options. This includes research on topics such as the link between Vitamin D and a reduction in cancer; how food choices impact your body during treatment and studies on Proton Therapy as a first-line treatment.
Education is power in preventing and surviving breast cancer. From teaching breast self exams to wise exercise, from managing post-treatment side-effects to mobilizing the mind for healing, we guide and support women to actively participate in health and healing. Our University Education Program teaches students the lifestyle choices they can make at an early age to prevent breast cancer.
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.
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.
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.
