Hell Rai$ers for Health

By Karuna Jaggar, Executive Director

Karuna-Jaggar-2015 smallFor 26 years, we’ve been the watchdog of the breast cancer movement. We believe that women’s health and patient interests must always come before corporate profits. We’re fiercely independent and have a strict conflict of interest policy, which means we cannot be bought or influenced by the powerful industries we’re up against. We refuse corporate funding from any company that profits from or contributes to breast cancer: pharma, chemical, health insurance, etc. – the kind of corporate funding that funds most other breast cancer organizations.

We rely on our grassroots network – people like you – to support our work, and nearly 75% of our funding comes from individuals. One important way Breast Cancer Action members support our education and activism for women’s health is to raise money to fund this work. Members have lots of creative ways to mobilize their community’s support for our activism, from bike rides to knitting parties, online fundraising pages, house parties, and more.

We can fiercely advocate for women’s health because we aren’t beholden to corporations that profit from or contribute to cancer. That’s why support from our members is so important to us. We are truly grassroots and we can’t do this work without you.
