As the cancer charity fraud story unfolds, we all need to know who to trust. The Breast Cancer Fund is an organization you can count on. With a strong commitment to financial responsibility and integrity, every dollar donated to the Breast Cancer Fund is used responsibly. We welcome you to review all of our financial allocations here: http://www.breastcancerfund.org/about/financial-information/
For the last decade 78–to-83 percent of our donations are allocated directly to our programmatic work. As a result, our impact has been mighty:
- Increased funding at both the state and federal level for the study of environmental links to breast cancer.
- Enactment of major state and federal policies to reduce exposure to toxic chemicals and radiation.
- Influencing the market for availability of safe non-toxic consumer products.
The Breast Cancer Fund’s values are clear and unwavering. We value working for a world in which we live without fear of losing our breasts or our lives as a result of what we’ve eaten, touched or breathed. Those values guide all of our decision-making. That’s why we are single-focused in our work to stop breast cancer before it starts by protecting our bodies and environment from toxic chemicals and radiation linked to the disease.
The Breast Cancer Fund is the leading national organization working to prevent breast cancer by eliminating our exposure to toxic chemicals linked to the disease. www.breastcancerfund.org
