At the Breast Cancer Fund, we know that there are things each of us can do every day to reduce our personal breast cancer risk. We also know that individual action is not enough.
That's why we're working on big-picture solutions. We're working to transform how we think about and use chemicals and radiation in order to reduce breast cancer risk and sustain life. We are finding solutions today so our children, grandchildren and planet thrive tomorrow.
Working together, we can achieve changes that will protect our health and prevent breast cancer.
