Mission:
The guiding mission of The Breast Cancer Society, Inc. (The BCS) is to provide relief to those who suffer from the effects of breast cancer now, as well as to work cooperatively with and give support to other personnel, individuals and organizations that share in the goal of helping cancer patients, the critically ill, and the impoverished. This is done through such means as education, direct assistance, financial aid, and the providing of supplies and care-giving products, and referral services. Additionally, The BCS assist in the eradication of breast cancer through education and the support of breast cancer research.
Results:
TBCS consistently increases its awareness efforts, as we believe that early detection can literally save a life. Recently, we have implemented a prominent online blog, targeting the challenges that research has identified that breast cancer patients are battling. We have also incorporated video testimonials of survivors, in effort to reach the newly diagnosed.

In 2012, the organization launched three new vital programs. Our non-medical In-Home Care, the Hope Scholarship Fund and the Empower Scholarship Fund. Each program is answering problematic issues surrounding a breast cancer diagnosis.
