BCAK is committed to:

  • research and advocacy directed towards prevention, early diagnosis and treatment
  • educating women, men, the public and physicians about the importance of breast self-examination and the benefit of early detection
  • providing support for patients, survivors and their families as they cope emotionally and physically with breast cancer

How we do it

  • Provide public education, family support services, dissemination and publication of information about breast cancer

Why we do it:
