Who is The Breast Cancer Society?

Many women who are battling breast cancer are forced to quit their jobs while undergoing treatment for cancer. This makes it especially difficult for them to afford everything from everyday basic needs to necessary breast cancer medication such as chemotherapy. To make matters more difficult, a great many of these women are single working mothers who are not only struggling to meet their own needs, but to meet the needs of their children as well. The primary focus of the Breast Cancer Society is to provide financial aid to qualified women by dispensing monthly grants to help pay for food, housing, child care, and other necessities.

While there are many non-profit organizations whose primary mission it is to fund research and education - the types of groups that do everything from publicizing breast cancer statistics that promote awareness to spending those long laboratory hours in search of a cure for breast cancer - the Breast Cancer Society is one of the country's only national breast cancer charities with a primary focus on providing direct help and financial aid to those waking up to battle breast cancer every single day.

The Breast Cancer Society recognizes that research and education efforts are vital, but there are many thousands of victims each year who need much more than just hope for a cure - they need immediate help in facing the financial challenges brought on by their illness. For this reason, the Breast Cancer Society places a great deal of value on their supporters. The charity relies on public support, mainly through channels of direct mail marketing, tele-fundraising, vehicle donations, corporate grants, volunteers, and so on.

The guiding mission of the Breast Cancer Society is "to provide relief to those who suffer from the effects of breast cancer. We also work with and give support to other organizations that share in the goal of helping cancer patients."

The Breast Cancer Society Inc. is a 501-C3 nonprofit charitable corporation which began operations in January of 2008. For more information about breast cancer statistics, how to afford your breast cancer medication, etc., visit the website or call the main office at (480) 284-4014.
