5,000 Mammograms by Mother’s Day

One in eight women will be affected by breast cancer in her lifetime. When caught in its earliest stages, breast cancer is almost 100% curable. Tragically, uninsured and underserved women across the country still struggle to afford basic early detection care that could save their lives.

This spring, honor the special women in your life by joining us for our 5,000 Mammograms by Mother’s Day campaign.

This new campaign, formed in collaboration with the Celebrating Life Foundation, will raise vital funding for ABCF’s Breast Cancer Assistance Program. The goal: raise enough money to cover the cost of 5,000 mammograms for clients in need. To date, ABCF has issued over 47,000 grants to help those in need of early detection services. This targeted campaign will allow us to serve thousands more. Please join us in this vital push to fund our Breast Cancer Assistance Program and encourage women of every status to be proactive and get checked.

​“I am so thankful ABCF was able to grant me funds for additional testing to rule out a diagnosis of breast cancer. I did not have health insurance and in addition to the worry and stress of a possible diagnosis of breast cancer, I did not want the additional stress of medical bills. Everyone was very nice and helpful. Thank you again!”
