I first met this unbiased group in 1996 before my daughter's death from metastatic breast cancer. Their staff provided invaluable guidance for the end of life at home and with grace. They take no industry or government money. Challenging "pinkwashing", joining the winning case on gene patenting before the Supreme Court and now initiating "Toxic Time is Up". They are in the forefront of identifying the causes of breast cancer . The new campaign to review the 1974 Toxic Substances Act deserves support and w ill benefit every citizen,

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help them meet with corporations and business leaders as well as public policy makers. Help them expose exploitation of disease. (example: The NFL has splashed pink every where yet only contributes 8% of money raised to Breast Cancer research according to national press today).

Great organization that truly advocates for those affected by breast cancer. I love the "Think Before You Pink" campaign that shows the relationship between drug manufacturers and the focus on treatment of breast cancer instead of its elimination. The newsletters are inspiring and educational, and I know I can trust what I read.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my own increased consciousness of the politics of breast cancer.

Breast Cancer Action (BCA): www.bcaction.org carries the voices of people affected by breast cancer to inspire and compel the changes necessary to end the breast cancer epidemic. Breast Cancer Action is the only national breast cancer organization that does not accept funding from corporations that profit from or contribute to cancer. BCA advocates for policy changes in three areas: 1. Treatment -- by shifting the balance of power at the FDA away from the pharmaceutical industry and towards the public interest while advocating for more effective and less toxic treatments 2. Environment -- by decreasing involuntary environmental exposures that put people at risk for breast cancer. 3. Inequities -- by creating awareness that it is not just genes, but social injustices - political, economic, and racial inequities - that lead to disparities in breast cancer outcomes. For more information please visit: www.bcaction.org

The Great!
