Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Breast Cancer, Health, Human Services

Mission: The mission of National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) is to provide help and inspire hope to those affected by breast cancer through early detection, education, and support services. NBCF was founded in 1991 by breast cancer survivor, Janelle Hail. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1980 at the age of 34. At the time of her diagnosis, there was little information about the disease, and she was forced to make decisions about her health with few options. After her treatment, Janelle made a commitment to help women around the world by educating them about breast cancer and the importance of early detection. NBCF helps empower women with the information and resources to take charge of their breast health.

Results: To date, NBCF has helped provide an estimated 305,000 screening and diagnostic breast care services and over 1.7 million patient navigation services to women in need. NBCF maintains the highest standard of fiscal stewardship and, on average, over 80% of spending is directed back into programs. Charity Navigator, America’s premier charity evaluator, has given NBCF its highest 4-star rating for our commitment to established financial, accountability, and transparency standards. Additionally, NBCF strictly adheres to IRS regulations as well as policies and procedures set by our Board of Directors, and conducts annual audits by an independent accounting and audit firm.

Target demographics: Underserved and underinsured women

Geographic areas served: Throughout the United States

Programs:
Education & Outreach
NBCF provides critical information to women and families about how they can reduce the risk of developing breast cancer, find breast cancer early, access screening programs, and eliminate barriers to quality treatment if later diagnosed. Women are empowered to advocate for their own breast health.

Screening & Diagnostics
NBCF works with hospitals and breast centers in communities across the country to help remove barriers to critical screenings and help women detect their breast cancer in its earliest stages when it is more treatable. Through this network we provide grants for free breast screening and diagnostic services for those in need. These facilities ensure access to treatment for patients who are diagnosed.

Patient Navigation
NBCF is working to remove the barriers in the complex cancer care system, such as cost, fear, and misinformation that prevent patients from getting the care they need in a timely fashion. Good, timely care and support can increase the quality of life and likelihood of survival by keeping women on track with their treatment and follow-up appointments. NBCF provides grant funds to help support salaries for patient navigators to provide services such as education and outreach in the community; guidance through screening and diagnostic exams; support through treatment and survivorship; assistance with financial, administrative, and emotional issues .

Support Service
NBCF provides critical support for patients at every step – whether they’re newly diagnosed, facing a terminal diagnosis, or facing breast cancer alone. Our goal is to ensure every patient and survivor has access to emotional support, guidance, and resources throughout their journey. These services include:
HOPE Kits: A care package filled with thoughtful items, which patients have found to be comforting and encouraging while undergoing breast cancer treatment.
Support Groups: Monthly support groups lead by a trained facilitator to encourage healthy dialogue and education for everyone involved.
Metastatic Breast Cancer Retreats: Retreats held around the country for metastatic breast cancer patients and their caregivers focusing on renewed hope, increased knowledge, and the reminder that they are not alone .

I was trying to find a local nonprofit that provided breast cancer awareness for the community. The staff was very nice and thoughtful when it came to our fundraiser's progress. They even gave us a care package just for providing our support.

The fundraiser that I set up with Westside Fitness was a 60 minute yoga class, focused on a yoga flow designed for breast cancer survivors. I am currently studying to become a yoga therapist and my area of focus is on using yoga for breast cancer recovery. Part of my certification is to teach several demonstrative therapeutic yoga classes, and Cathy (manager of Westside Fitness) was gracious enough to let me use her space to teach the two classes. Cathy and I both decided that entry into the class would be on a donation base only and all proceeds would benefit the fight against breast cancer.
We decided on National Breast Cancer Foundation because we believe in your mission, “to provide help and inspire hope to those affected by breast cancer through early detection, education, and support services.” As a yoga instructor my goal is to educate everyone on the benefits of yoga and how it can help them in their daily lives. Through my research and from class feedback, I am learning what yoga can do for breast cancer survivors.

I believe that both classes were a great success with about 15 students participating in each session and walking away with a new and positive experience. Having never hosted a fundraiser before, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was blown away by the amount of money raised and the support received. I walk away from this experience feeling encouraged and inspired and grateful to be able to support such a worthy cause.

At Jamba Juice, we believe in Teaming Up to have an impact on our local communities and that we can make more of a difference together than any one of us can make alone. Our partnership with National Breast Cancer Foundation allows us to broaden our impact, as the funds we donate support research programs, early detection programs, and outreach and support to women and families affected by this disease. NBCF’s staff provided world-class support as we planned and executed our fundraising campaign, making it easy and fun to raise support and awareness for NBCF.

The NBCF is an amazing group of people. United Hospital Center in Bridgeport WV has been honored to work with this fine organization since 2012. Though a generous grant we have been able to have a navigation program and help a large amount of uninsured and under insured breast patients. I cannot thank them enough for their support and without the NBCF we would not be able to reach so many. Thank you for all you do!

The generousity of the NBCF to United Hospital Center has had a tremendous impact on the care of breast cancer patients through North Centeral West Virginia. We are able to provide services from mammogram and if abnormal to breast cancer survivorship. We are able to provide community outreach to many people who would normally not receive this education. The Clinical Navigator for Breast Health is the positon created with the help from a grant from the NBCF. This positon is very needed in this area and is helping so many people.Thank you, NBCF for all that you do!

Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center, located in Charlotte, North Carolina, and the Novant Health Cancer Prevention and Early Detection (CPED) program have partnered with the National Breast Cancer Foundation for the past seven years to meet the growing needs of Mecklenburg and 12 neighboring counties. Mecklenburg County has the highest rates of late-stage breast cancer diagnosis in North Carolina. By offering comprehensive breast health education and screening awareness to all women regardless of socioeconomic status, CPED addresses the significant healthcare needs of uninsured/underserved patients in the region. National Breast Cancer Foundation funding provides women ages 40-49 years with screening mammograms, diagnostic procedures ad critical education from highly qualified breast cancer health staff. This partnership facilitates program growth and enhanced collaboration with community groups, churches and local free clinics, providing uninsured/underserved women access to breast health services at local Novant Health Breast Imaging centers and Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center's mammography mobile coach.

Patients presenting with an abnormal finding are enrolled in the navigation program and receive diagnostic services and/or referrals to the Novant Health Cancer Care High-Risk Clinic. A safety net of care is provided for these women, from screening through diagnosis navigation and survivorship. National Breast Cancer Foundation's continued support is making a difference in the lives of uninsured/underserved women, especially those with more aggressive breast cancers who may not receive education or lifesaving early breast cancer screening without financial assistance. Novant Health CPED program staff is deeply grateful for this valuable and productive partnership.

The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) has been an outstanding partner with Sibley Memorial Hospital, Johns Hopkins Medicine for many years. Our alliance allows both organizations to extend beyond their own boundaries to ensure that women in the community get the best breast healthcare possible. With NBCF’s support, Sibley Memorial Hospital has been able to expand our navigation services to patients for screening, at point of diagnosis, during treatment and beyond into survivorship. NBCF is a compassionate and accountable organization. As grant recipient we are regularly given the opportunity to report to NBCF on our navigation program achievements, and we are honored to collaborate with this exceptional organization.

Through these funds, we have been able to seamlessly process patients through the health care system, providing translation services, transportation services and case management as they undergo diagnostic services and treatment when needed.

National Breast Cancer Foundation has been an ideal partner for us at Parkland Hospital. By working closely with them to articulate the needs of underserved and minority women in Dallas, we have had great synergy; and they have provided funding for mammography, diagnostics and most importantly, patient navigation services. NBCF is enthusiastic and caring in their work with us but also rigorous and consistent in their request for outcome measures, success stories and instances when they need our help to inspire others to give. We are pleased and proud to have their support and intend for ours to be a lifetime partnership.

On behalf of the Johns Hopkins Breast Center, we are honored and thrilled to continue to receive funding to support a key element of our breast nurse navigation program. As an institution who performs a large volume of screening mammograms, diagnostic mammograms, and also thousands of biopsies, we know the value of early detection. The NBCF has enabled us to provide nurse navigation in unique ways which includes breast imaging. Our navigator facilitates our weekly breast imaging/breast surgical oncology team radiology reviews so that patients having breast cancer surgery in the coming 7 days have their breast imaging studies and other tests carefully reviewed so that there is nothing missed or overlooked in preparing the patient for the right surgery in the right setting at the right time by the right providers. This same nurse navigator, who herself is a breast cancer survivor, also conducts community outreach events to raise awareness, undo myths, instill the facts, and she personally navigates breast cancer patients from their point of diagnosis through their treatment experience. Though thankfully the majority of breast cancer patients today become long term survivors, not all do. This navigator also is a co-facilitator with me for our semi annual metastatic breast cancer patient retreats which help patients and their family members prepare for what will lie ahead. Additionally, this nurse navigator also oversees our team of survivor volunteers who come on site to hold hands of patients getting biopsies. It is comforting during a time when fear of hearing "you have breast cancer" is on the minds of patients, they can be comforted by someone who is a survivor. She also conducts our annual survivor retreat as well. We are truly blessed to have the support of this terrific organization.

The National Breast Cancer Foundation has supported breast cancer early detection and diagnosis for women in our community on the rural coast of Northern California for about five years. The free mammogram program provided at one of our local hospitals, Mad River Community Hospital, helps women who are income eligible and uninsured get the care they need and deserve. The NBCF has awarded our organization, the Breast and GYN Health Project, a grant for an RN Breast Health Navigator to help women get screening mammograms, find healthcare providers and navigate the healthcare system when they have a breast health concern or breast cancer. They really care and we appreciate their support!

Women are the largest users of our SABRE personal safety products. Since we’ve received tremendous support for our brand for four decades, we believe in giving back and helping others. The National Breast Cancer Foundation was very highly ranked and regarded. We learned that a greater percentage of our donations would be used to help fight breast cancer than the other charities we researched. We appreciate our partnership with the National Breast Cancer Foundation because this year-round fundraising effort supports cornerstones of both organizations: empowering women to protect themselves by giving them the necessary tools and education.

Oromill Lumber held a fundraiser back in October for the NBCF and it far exceeded our vision. We started planning this event in July and invited small business, schools, the public and dignitaries from our city to attend. We held our event on a Saturday and entertained, fed and raised money with raffles, baked goods, great food, live music, a classic car show, a kids zone and were amazed by the people that donated, participated and attended. Most donors had a connection with breast cancer. Either they knew someone who had passed, fought, or is fighting breast cancer. We raised almost $10,000.00 for the NBCF in just 3 months. We look forward to promoting, informing and raising money for the NBCF next year!! Thank you NBCF for allowing Oromill Lumber to help take a bite out of cancer!!!

The National Breast Cancer Foundation is a great non-profit organization that uses their resources to research early detection and also works to find a cure for breast cancer. I had the pleasure of working with them when my school did a fundraiser during our fall sport senior night. During the whole process, they communicated with me, sent me resources, and answered any questions I had concerning how to make our night more successful.

We are apart of a large youth lacrosse program in Frisco, TX and we always raise money for breast cancer awareness. Our program has always felt that it was important to teach our young boys and girls the importance of giving back to others and this is our big fundraiser in the fall season. We were thrilled to learn that NBCF is right here in Frisco, TX and that the money donated could go to directly help others. NBCF is extremely professional and yet keep a sense of personal touch to their correspondences. We have donated to NBCF for the past few years and will continue to donate to their organization as they make you feel good for what you are doing and no domination is too little and everything you do is appreciated. Thank you NBCF for your wonderful organization!

We researched nonprofit breast cancer foundations and were looking for one that was not heavy on top and put money back into the cause and the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. fit that to a tee. They were very easy to talk to and get information from and they treat you like family. A great experience to work on their behalf to find a cure and help those that need help with breast cancer.

2014 is the first year I organized a fundraiser benefiting the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
I wanted to find a way to remember my mom and find a way to help others fight breast cancer.
I chose NBCF because of their mission to provide education, early detection through free mammograms, and support to under-served women who might not have access to healthcare.
In addition, they have a high rating on Charity Navigator and I found that they give ~.85 cents of every dollar donated to the cause. This is much higher than many organizations I looked at.
During the planning process Lauren, from the fundraising team, was very helpful and responded to my questions quickly with helpful recommendations. The fundraising manual was very helpful as well.
This year was a learning experience but my experience was made smoother working with NBCF.
We plan to repeat our 'Que for the Cause every year and continue to donate the proceeds to NBCF.

As a result of a very generous grant from the National Breast Cancer Foundation, I was able to hire a Patient Navigator for the Breast Care Program at my hospital. The navigator is an active presence in the community who identifies women with breast problems or in need of breast screening mammography. The women we care for are uninsured and underserved. They face many barriers to accessing appropriatr health care. Our patients are very grateful to our navigator and we are very grateful to the National Breast Cancer Foundation!

The National Breast Cancer Foundation is exemplary in granting financial support to organizations that provide direct care to patients. Because of their generosity, I was able to hire an outreach navigator who works in our community to promote education regarding the importance of mammography screening and to navigate patients through the screening process. Every day, I hear grateful patients talk about what this program means to them. They know mammography is important but did not see how they could get access. We treat them with dignity and respect. We help them to learn how important their healthcare is. We save their lives. This is only possible because of the generosity of the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

The National Breast Cancer Foundation has helped hundreds of women obtain free mammograms, diagnostic workups, and assistance in navigating the complex healthcare field for breast health issues in Humboldt County, California. I am proud to be affiliated with this organization as they place education and assistance to breast health issues first, before self. In a time of difficult changes in the health care arena, NBCF is a constant, providing hope and comfort to women across the world.

I am a proud member of the Board of Directors.

From the Founder to the Receptionist everyone is committed to bringing breast health information, diagnosis, and treatment to underserved and uninsured women. The Hospitals where I have worked have been allowed to provide mammograms and diagnostic services to hundreds of women who would never have had the opportunity otherwise though their grant program.

Jamaica Bay Riding Academy, Brooklyn, NY is home to many women riders who own horses. This past May, JBRA was able to take part in raising money for NBCF. We have had many women riders who have had cancer scares and look to the horses in order to feel a little bit better. When you are feeling blue that equine friend is sure to put a smile right back on your face.
NBCF helps to make it easier for early detection as well as having a great support staff for women to turn too. I admire NBCF for all of the people they reach out to and look forward to being on the fundraising team for 2015!!

NBCF has made mammography screening affordable for thousands of women in Greater Cincinnati through its support of TriHealth's Women's Services. The program officers have worked with us to streamline our reporting and have always been helpful when we had questions. In the end, the NBCF has helped low income, uninsured or underinsured women who otherwise would not have obtained the screening. The women we help as a result of this grant are grateful for the peace of mind they gain through knowing they do not have breast cancer or for the information they receive that helps them to obtain further testing and treatment. Either way they win. Thank you, NBCF, for helping us do this good work in our community.

M.S.’s daughter-in-law states: “She remembers the navigators’ time shared and was not sure at the time of her pathology results what her new medical situation would bring. This situation certainly caught all of us (family, friends) unaware. My family and I felt very good about the team approach and that of the breast surgeon.”
M.S. says: “Several years ago, one of our children had surgery where she lived in Orlando. I was the primary caregiver; and I was completely caught unaware of the post-op items and care that would be needed. Not being familiar with the Cincinnati area, we have found the navigators and team at your breast center to be very helpful with references, and resources to better prepare us for my surgery, so that my family could provide me with the best care. So, thank you all for being there for us and sharing all the wonderful resources and information available to me and other patients at a time when we critically needed it. You all have made a big difference in those first few days, and weeks of my diagnosis. We just wanted to let the navigators and staff know how grateful we are for the quick responses, and precise diagnosis and recommendations for my surgery and oncology needs. Thanks again for all the answers to all those questions. You all helped to calm the nerves, and anxiety….couldn’t have done it without you all.”

National Breast Cancer Foundation funded a grant at our community hospital to provide mammograms for women who are uninsured or whose insurance does not make this service affordable, especially for those who are financially struggling. In the first year of the grant, we have provided 41 mammograms to women who would otherwise not had access to this important screening tool. We have another 120 women who have expressed interest in the program and we are working hard to schedule their appointments. This program will save many lives through early detection and diagnosis, and we are proud to be part of the network of National Breast Cancer Foundation's National Mammography Program.

The National Breast Cancer Foundation has supported and funded the Louisiana Breast and Cervical Health Program for years. NBCF’s contribution has provided mammograms for uninsured low income women in the Greater New Orleans area. NBCF funds have removed the financial barrier that prevents women from getting screened. The National Breast Cancer Foundation is a wonderful and pleasant organization to work with. Their application and reporting process is straightforward.

Through funding received from the National Breast Cancer Foundation, St. Thomas Community Health Center has ben able to provide screening mammograms to women who otherwise would not have the financial resources to cover the cost. Many of our patients are uninsured or under insured and single heads of their households and when faced with the decision of choosing to provide for their families or pay for a mammogram; many would choose providing a need for the family. The funding has provided live saving resources for many of our patients. The ability or remove the financial barrier and added stress from our patients truly makes a world of difference in the lives of the clients we serve.

The NBCF has sponsored our program for five years. The funds have been used to provide mammograms to rarely and never screened women who do not have health insurance. This, in some cases, is a life saver. Many women say the reason they wait a long time to get screened, even with symptoms, is because they do not have insurance and cannot pay for the medical care. This program eliminates the cost barrier for those women, and is essential to continuing to do so.

I belong to a Motorcycle Club and we wanted to hold a car/bike wash with a charity to give back. We selected Breast Cancer as we have two members who mother passed of this. So while raising money at the car wash we also requested donation for BC cause. The car wash was a success and so was the donations for the national breast cancer foundation. We exceeded our goal and we all had fun while bring awareness to the community. We provided arm bands, literature and different giveaways that supporting the cause. The website was easy to use and create and we are glad to give back to the community.

National Breast Cancer Foundation has supported mammography services for hundreds of breast imaging patients at Parkland Hospital in Dallas, Texas. The generosity removes financial barrier for women by covering the cost of screening mammograms, diagnostic mammograms and ultrasound procedures.

NBCF funds also have allowed Parkland to add a highly qualified bilingual patient navigator to our patient services team. She helps provide a more seamless continuum of care for Parkland Breast Center patients. Her presence is helping reduce wait times for patients and significantly reduces the anxiety sometimes associated with medical procedures.

I am a mammography tech for Huntsman Cancer Hospital and I would like to thank the National Breast Cancer Foundation for helping us provide our uninsured patients with excellent care. I am so proud to work with the NBCF to help promote the fight for breast cancer! I have had so many postive comments from patients who have expressed their gratitude for being able to receive medical treatment because of this wonderful foundation. One in particular that was expecially touching came from a lovely Hispanic woman who wrote her comment in Spanish and then had her son translate it for me. She expressed her thanks and said, "God bless those who care for the health of women". Thank you for all you do to bless the lives of our patients!
