Our small but mighty team strives to counterbalance the hyped-up headlines and corporate influence in breast cancer reporting so that you can make the best decisions for your health.

Our history illustrates our path to our present-day role as breast cancer truth-tellers: BCAction was formed in 1990, when a group of women living with breast cancer encountered unresponsive government agencies and private organizations that provided inadequate, superficial information—not the evidence-based data they were looking for. They got angry and turned that anger into action by forming Breast Cancer Action.

Since then, BCAction has provided important, evidence-based information and resources from experienced, compassionate staff while also making information about breast cancer accessible and free of charge to anyone who needs it.

Thank you for your steadfast support. I hope you’ll make a year-end donation today so that we can continue to provide crucial information and resources in 2022.



With your support, we will:

  • Continue to produce one-of-a-kind and timely content about issues of breast cancer screening, treatment and diagnosis by posting our unique, independent analysis on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
  • Make our, toolkits, fact sheets, webinars, and other resources more accessible through our Resource Library, one of the new features of our redesigned, more powerful, and better values-aligned website.
  • Produce episodes throughout the year of our hard-hitting, unmatched podcasts, exposing the truth about the breast cancer industry, as well as giving people the tools they can use to make a difference.
  • Research and distribute our upcoming toolkit, focused on the most up-to-date and industry-exposing connections between breast cancer and climate change.

We are unique in the breast cancer landscape.

We are radical and compassionate; activists at heart with an independent, rapid-response watchdog perspective.

And we can only do this with your support. Please make your fully tax-deductible year-end donation today.
