Elenore Pred is BCAction’s founding mother. In the 1980s she was diagnosed with breast cancer and had been seeking information about its causes and treatment. She consistently encountered an unresponsive group of government agencies and other organizations that provided inadequate, superficial, and often inaccurate information, not evidence-based hard data. She was frustrated and grew angry and shared that anger with other women in her breast cancer support group. In the summer of 1990, together they took action by forming Breast Cancer Action.
Our visionary founders knew breast cancer was more than a woman’s private trauma. Action needed to be taken in order for it to be addressed as a national public health emergency. Since Elenore’s death in October 1991, BCAction has continued and expanded her work through cutting-edge grassroots and media advocacy.
Thank you for your support.
