American Breast Cancer Foundation

AMERICAN BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION
Wednesday, October 05, 2016
The goal of the American Breast Cancer Foundation (ABCF) is to provide support and resources to clients who call us when they have nowhere else to turn. Due to disparities in breast cancer mortality nationwide, low socioeconomic status is a risk factor for negative breast cancer outcomes. ABCF works to extend the reach of the rescue by providing financial assistance for potentially lifesaving screenings and diagnostic tests.

By educating individuals about the importance of screenings, which facilitate diagnosis and treatment, ABCF works to achieve equality in breast cancer outcomes. Since its establishment, ABCF has provided financial assistance for mammograms and ultrasounds to more than 19,000 clients, regardless of age or gender.

For many years, the flagship programs of the American Breast Cancer Foundation have been the Breast Cancer Assistance Program and the Community Partnership Program.  This year, a newly developed Community Advocacy Program is poised to kick off.

These programs, individually and combined, are crucial if a difference is to be made in population disparities in cancer prevention and health promotion.  Research findings suggest that interventions aimed at reducing racial/ethnic disparities in cancer detection and racial/ethnic disparities in cancer treatment have the potential to influence overall differences in outcomes. It is ABCF programs' focus to reduce this disparity, and to improve survival rates of clients served.
