Make Our Products Safe
The products we use every day contain toxic chemicals that have been linked to breast cancer and other diseases. But the Breast Cancer Fund is working hard to change that, and to change the system that let it happen in the first place. We’re focusing our efforts on making products safe through strategic policy initiatives, both at the state and federal level. Here are some of the things we’re working on:
