Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Breast Cancer, Health, Human Services

Mission: The National Breast Cancer Foundation’s mission is to provide help and inspire hope to those affected by breast cancer through early detection, education, and support services.

Results: NBCF has provided over 937,000 patient services since 2001 through their network of hospitals. With rising healthcare costs, many uninsured or underinsured women cannot afford the cost of screening and diagnostic tests. By providing free mammograms and breast care services to underserved women, NBCF will increase the early detection of breast cancer which will lead to higher survival rates. Facilities within the screening and diagnostics program continue to report that because of grant funding from NBCF, they are able to help women in their areas that did not qualify for state or local funds to access mammography services. Any life that is saved is an example of the success of the program.

Target demographics: Underserved and uninsured women

Geographic areas served: Throughout the United States

Programs: Screening and Diagnostics/Patient Navigation Services: Through its screening and diagnostics program, NBCF partners with medical facilities across the country to provide free mammograms and diagnostic breast care services to underserved women. In addition, this program requires that medical facilities within its network have the capacity to continue treatment after an abnormal finding or diagnosis of breast cancer. The program’s network includes medical facilities across the United States. While NBCF provides free breast care services through its screening and diagnostic program, sometimes those in need are unaware that the program exists. Through patient navigation programs at medical facilities within their network, NBCF is able to promote early detection procedures to those that need it most. NBCF’s Patient Navigator Program is a proactive approach to helping patients overcome the barriers of cost, fear, and misinformation about a disease and its prevention. By helping underserved women to navigate the healthcare system, navigators help ensure timely diagnosis and treatment and provide the vision that gives women hope. Early Detection/Awareness Education: Beyond the Shock® is a step-by-step guide to understanding the diagnosis of breast cancer presented in an interactive online website and mobile app. It allows those affected by breast cancer to learn about breast cancer, ask and answer questions in a safe and supportive online community, and hear inspirational stories from breast cancer survivors. The Breast Health Education Program provides breast cancer education and early detection services to women at community outreaches across the country. NBCF educates women about the importance of early detection and informs them about resources that are available in their community. Women are given the opportunity to receive free clinical breast exams from nurse practitioners. Breast Cancer Research: NBCF strives to help find the cure for breast cancer by working with some of the finest scientists in the world. Funding is provided to MD Anderson Cancer Center as they apply comprehensive team science to improve treatment and clinical outcomes for triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) and high-grade serous ovarian cancer (HGSOC). This dual focus stems from recent studies that point to remarkable similarities in the underlying molecular events that cause these two rare, aggressive cancers. Support Services: HOPE Kits are given to women undergoing breast cancer treatment. These kits are filled with thoughtful items that patients have told us are comforting and encouraging while undergoing treatment. NBCF hosts Metastatic Breast Cancer Retreats for women with Stage 4 breast cancer. Patients with metastatic breast cancer face a unique set of emotions and challenges. To help these women and their loved ones cope, NBCF hosts weekend retreats for a small group of patients and their caregivers, with the help of our partner hospital Johns Hopkins. Patients leave the retreat with renewed hope, increased knowledge, and the reminder that they are not alone.

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.

On behalf of the Johns Hopkins Breast Center, we have been blessed with receiving grant support to fund one of our very much needed breast nurse navigators. NBCF does an amazing job providing grants for this purpose so that more and more breast patients can be supported from the point of their diagnostic mammogram/ultrasound through to the completion of treatment and beyond as a long term survivor or end of life. We are proud to have such a partnership with them!! Lillie Shockney, Director, JH Breast Center

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!!!

I recently heard that one of my high-school friends died from stage four breast cancer. She was not aware she had it until it was too late. Also, members of my church has experience a lost in their family due to breast cancer and we have had members who experience a love one - going thru. Breast Cancer Foundation Company is an opportunity for all to survive this dreadful disease. Greer Chapel United Methodist Church is honored to be a blessing to others. Our ministry enjoy reaching out because we won't know if we would be next person to experience the pain and agony of cancer, but it is a tremendous blessing knowing how we can stop it from progressing. We thank the Lord Jesus for giving us the gift of love through sharing, loving, and appreciating each other.

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!

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.

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.
