Take a Stand This October—Support BCA!

It’s October, as marked by the sea of pink ribbons that can be found everywhere you look. We know that for many people the ribbon symbolizes awareness of the disease and support for those affected. But with so many women still being diagnosed and hundreds of companies marketing their products through pink ribbon promotions, you can’t help but ask, “Who is really benefiting?”

If you want to know where your money is really going, take a stand this October by making a donation directly to Breast Cancer Action. You won’t have to question how much of your donation is actually going to the cause or whether the product you purchased contains toxins linked with cancer. When you invest in Breast Cancer Action, you can trust that your money is being used responsibly to ask hard questions and save women’s lives. Eighty percent of our funding goes directly to our programs.

BCA is the only national breast cancer organization that does not accept funding from the pharmaceutical industry or from any corporation profiting from or contributing to breast cancer. Our corporate contributions policy—and your support—give us the freedom to be the preeminent breast cancer watchdog, advocating for everyone with and at risk for breast cancer.
