Each year, hundreds of thousands of people participate in breast cancer walks and runs across the U.S. Some of these walks have become huge affairs that are hosted by multi-million dollar charities and sponsored by multi-billion dollar corporations that raise millions to “end breast cancer.”
If you want to be sure your time and money are truly making a difference, here are four easy questions to ask before participating in or donating to a breast cancer walk.
From the fracking fields in Kern County to urban oil drilling in Los Angeles, community members are feeling the impacts of this toxic industry on their own health, and that of their children and loved ones. Fracking relies on toxic chemicals linked to breast cancer and other health issues.
Watch the recording of an important public forum to hear people’s stories about living next to toxic drill sites and fracking wells, learn the science behind their experiences, and what we can do to end this toxic practice.
About Breast Cancer Action
Breast Cancer Action is not your average breast cancer organization. We’re fiercely independent and refuse corporate funding from any company that profits from or contributes to breast cancer. That means we can ALWAYS put women’s health first.
We’re focused on achieving health justice for all women living with and at risk of breast cancer. Radical and compassionate, we never shy away from the hard truths. We tell it like it is about breast cancer: 40,000 women die of this devastating disease every year, and we don’t have nearly enough to show for the billions of dollars raised in the name of breast cancer.
BCAction was founded in 1990 by a handful of women who were living with and dying from breast cancer and who demanded answers about their disease. Today, BCAction is a national grassroots organization with members across the country. Together we’re challenging the status quo and working to address and end the breast cancer epidemic.
