BCPP is a great organization of motivated, compassionate, smart, and hard-working people who care about creating a healthier, more conscious world! I like staying educated on safe products and cancer-awareness events through their email subscriptions and Instagram. I love that they're women-led as well. All around a great company that makes me feel good about the progress that our society is capable of.
I have been a supporter of this organization for 26 years. They are great at informing the public about the toxics in our environment and in our everyday products that are linked to breast cancer. The information on the website and other communications is so informative, it has helped me change out my family's products and pushed me to support legislation that will eliminate these toxic exposures.
Too many women have lost their lives to breast cancer. With only 10% of women having a genetic connection, I truly believe our environment and the toxic chemicals we are exposed to DAILY play a major role. BCPP is the only organization that I trust to give my dollars to in order to stop this disease before it starts!
Breast Cancer Prevention Partners does a LOT of good work, especially considering how small the staff size is. They are one of the few breast cancer organizations focused on primary prevention of the disease (versus treatment and cures). 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than half of all breast cancers cannot be attributed to traditional risk factors (genetics, reproductive history and diet). Which means we need to look and see what environmental exposures are out there that are contributing to this disease.
Love how BCPP strongly ties their advocacy work with science. They've also created big changes over the years with their market-campaigns - like phthalates ban in kids toys and BPA removal from the majority of canned goods.
BCPP's scientific research cuts through a lot of the fake, the pseudo-science on the web, and gets real about the toxic chemicals that are scientifically proven to cause harm and increase breast cancer risk. Thanks BCPP!
I have been supporting this non-profit for almost 18 years. They are one of the only breast cancer organizations focused solely on prevention of the disease, which is crucial to reducing the odds for 1 in 8 women. I have been tracking their progress and they have been incredibly effective in reducing our exposure to toxic chemicals linked to the disease, through their legislative advocacy and market campaigns. It has been well worth the investment, but there is still a lot of work to do, so I would encourage people to support them.
I love BCPP! They are the only organization that focuses on breast cancer prevention and eliminating our toxic environmental exposures.
The Brain Cancer Fund is doing exceptional work by making prevention a public health priority. I applaud the efforts of the Breast Cancer Fund for making a real difference by focusing on big-picture solutions in efforts to sustain life. I am a firm believer in employing the precautionary principle because it is better to be safe than sorry.
Review from Guidestar
The Breast Cancer Fund has focused for years on working towards eliminating environmental chemicals that are linked to breast cancer. Their State of the Evidence publication is a wealth of information. The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics made the public aware of what toxic ingredients companies are using. As a lactation educator and breastfeeding advocate, I was involved with their efforts to establish a state biomonitoring program. This took 3 or 4 years of hard work, but it finally passed. I strongly believe in their focus on environmental toxins contributing to breast cancer. I appreciate their efforts to work towards our children not being exposed to chemicals through having safe toys and BPA-free products.
