Breast Cancer Action’s 2020 Think Before You Pink® Campaign will launch Thursday, October 1st!

Filed under blog Tags:

Let the countdown to Pinktober begin! For us, October is breast cancer industry month. Corporate giants and mega-nonprofits have taken advantage of this month to exploit breast cancer for their own gain and to make it look like they care about the breast cancer crisis. Government leaders have claimed to care about breast cancer but refuse to stop […]

Breast Cancer Doesn’t Stop For Pandemics—And Neither Do We

Filed under blog

By Karuna Jaggar, Executive Director The need for evidence-based public health policy that is adequately funded and free from political influence has never been more apparent. And for 30 years, Breast Cancer Action’s members have demanded just that. Help us raise $25,000 by May 5th so that we have the resources we need during this critical time. Breast […]

Take Action for Affordable Medicines & Devices

Filed under blog, campaign Tags:

by Jayla Burton, Program Officer Since our founding, Breast Cancer Action has worked to expand access to quality, evidence-based healthcare for all people.

By Zoe Christopher, Information and Resources Liaison I came to BCAction shortly after a friend was diagnosed – and she had a bilateral mastectomy in her early 40s. Another friend and fellow photographer, Debi, was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer. She was gone four months later, leaving her beautiful son without a mother. Six […]

Supporting 30 Years of Uncompromising Activism

Filed under blog

By The Board of Directors Next year marks Breast Cancer Action’s 30th anniversary. In the beginning, we were only a handful of women, living with and dying from breast cancer, who demanded answers and information about this disease.

Tell 3M: Say Never to Forever Chemicals

Filed under blog, campaign

Each October, multibillion-dollar corporations try to make money off of breast cancer by telling us to buy their products to “support a good cause.” When 3M markets pink ribbon products, but also produces toxic forever chemicals that may contribute to an increased risk of breast cancer, that’s pinkwashing.  Tell 3M’s executives to stop the production, use, and sale of all PFAS. […]

Today is the deadline to give. Chip in now and help us reach our goal! We get over 70% of our funding from individuals, which means we never have […]

Every spring, breast cancer industry giants like Komen kick off their annual fundraising walks and runs. Before you lace up your […]
