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.
