Breast Cancer Action
December 26, 2008
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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
people I've met who got great information from BCA, including family members and friends who have been diagnosed with breast cancer.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
Working with wonderful, dedicated people who are making in a difference and telling the truth about this disease, and the treatment options for people who are diagnosed.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
On top of everything.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Board Member & I organized a fundraiser for BCA in September, 2008.
