Because Breast Cancer is Personal

By Karuna Jaggar

Breast Cancer Action’s work is deeply personal.  

Join me by making a year-end donation in honor or memory of a loved one. 

Our stories join us. And by taking action together, we remember and honor our loved ones by working for a world where fewer people are diagnosed with and die from breast cancer. 

It’s been fifteen years since I was first stunned by the December breast cancer diagnosis of a family member who seemed invincible. Last year at this time, I was in treatment for my own cancer. Although I’m doing well and have finished treatment, too many others in my community are living with metastatic disease and will be in treatment for the rest of their lives. 

Your donation today is a commitment to creating a better world and to achieving health justice for everyone at risk of and living with breast cancer.

We’ve accomplished so much with your support. Over the years, we’ve fundamentally changed how people think and talk about abreast cancer. 

But there is still so much to do.

Every day, we work tirelessly to support people living with breast cancer, honor those who have died, and protect the health of future generations. For 28 years, Breast Cancer Action has offered free, unbiased, one-of-a-kind information about breast cancer to anyone who needs it. Our conflict of interest policy means you can always trust that our analysis is unbiased, science-based and patient-centered as you make deeply personal health decisions. And through regulatory and legislative advocacy, we work to eliminate involuntary exposures to chemicals that increase the risk of the disease—or interfere with treatment!—so fewer people are diagnosed in the first place.

Breast Cancer Action was founded by a group of women living with, and dying from, breast cancer. Your support builds on and carries forward the legacy of the fearless and feisty activists who have been part of this remarkable organization over the decades.   

We are deeply grateful for your donation in honor or memory of your loved one. Thank you for investing in Breast Cancer Action’s work to create a world where lives and communities aren’t threatened by breast cancer. 

If you have any questions or need help making your donation, please contact Lopa Pal at lpal@bcaction.org or (415) 243-9301 x19.

Thank you!
