BCCA leads the quest to provide research funding into non-traditional cancer prevention and treatment options. We have a specific emphasis on understanding the link between nutrition and breast cancer. Research to demonstrate required changes in the American diet ranks as our top priority.
One of the primary goals of BCCA is to teach “integrated cancer care.” We provide accurate, up-to-date information on mobilizing the “whole person” in cancer prevention and recovery. We are pioneers in educating the public about breast cancer prevention, early detection, treatment, survival and quality of life.
BCCA promotes public health policies for the prevention of breast cancer and the support of people touched by breast cancer.
BCCA provides direct help now. Working through cancer treatment centers nationally, the “Help Now Fund” provides counseling and emergency financial services to assist women and their families. We help with the unexpected expenses of cancer such as transportation treatments, past-due utility bills, rent eviction notices, and the like. Our commitment is adequate food, clothing and shelter for every woman going through breast cancer.
BCCA partners with cancer treatment centers in Honduras, Guatemala and the Philippines bringing medicine and medical equipment to cancer patients in need.
