Your Support Can Make A Lasting Impact


OCTOBER IS BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

 

Avon Breast Cancer Crusade Impact – Centers of Excellence and Research Initiatives

Avon Centers of Excellence: Located in seven urban hubs across the US, Avon Centers of Excellence are major academic institutions that advance scientific research and ensure that underserved communities have access to state-of-the-art breast cancer care.

Research: We invest in research on the prevention, diagnostics, and treatment of breast cancer so that individuals – specifically those living with the metastatic disease or other sub-types with few existing therapies – have as many options as possible. Current projects examine a number of issues, including the role of diet and metastatic breast cancer growth; the pathways by which tumor cells circulate around the body; and the identification of unique biomarkers for triple negative breast cancer.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Dear Friend,

What is the ultimate goal in the fight against breast cancer? To end it. But just as important as the countless hours and billions of dollars of research still needed to better understand the disease, is the ability for us to provide quality and timely access to care for all women, no matter their socioeconomic status. When it comes to treating women with breast cancer – it’s about equity, not equality.

The Avon Breast Cancer Crusade supports seven major academic medical centers across the United States—our Centers of Excellence—that are focused on two primary goals: providing the highest quality and access to care and performing cutting-edge research to improve a patient’s chance to achieve the best possible outcome.

WILL YOU HELP US?

We’re half-way through Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we need your support to raise critical dollars to continue this work.

TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Avon Breast Cancer Crusade Impact – Metastatic Breast Cancer Programs

Avon-Pfizer Metastatic Breast Cancer Grants Program: Our long-term collaboration with Pfizer Oncology aims to increase the quality of life for metastatic breast cancer patients by meeting the unique needs of this important population.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Dear Friend,

There are currently no known cures for metastatic breast cancer and while the unique needs of these patients are well documented, they too often go unmet. That’s why the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade, through the Avon-Pfizer Metastatic Grants Program, is proud to be one of the biggest funders of organizations that look beyond the medical needs of metastatic patients to support them in their journey towards living the best quality of life possible.

For 25 years, the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade has been helping to provide quality breast cancer care to people across the country, regardless of their ability to pay. But without your support, we can’t fund programs that provide diagnostic services, education, counseling, and nutrition programs for those who are at risk or diagnosed with breast cancer. So, will you help us? Together, we can make a difference!

Avon Breast Cancer Crusade Impact – Access to Care Programs


ACCESS TO CARE PROGRAMS
We work to help women overcome the barriers they face to have the best possible chance for survival.


Breast Health Outreach Program (BHOP): All individuals should be able to get timely, affordable and easy-to-understand breast health care. BHOP’s 60 partners located in 32 states educate medically underserved communities about breast cancer prevention and risk reduction. They connect individuals to screening services like mammography and stand by their side through any abnormal findings and diagnostic tests.

Safety Net: If breast cancer is identified, hospital-based patient navigators guide women through the labyrinth that is the healthcare system. Patient navigators in more than 30 Avon-supported hospitals across the country make appointments for medical care, connect women to community-based services helping with practical issues like transportation and housing assistance and help identify opportunities to reduce the emotional and financial burdens of breast cancer treatment.

Dear Friend,

For 25 years, the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade has helped provide quality breast cancer care to people across the country, regardless of their ability to pay. This means more access to screenings, education, counseling, and nutrition programs.

Our commitment is year-round. But this October, for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we’re making a special ask for you to help us fund vital services like the critical screenings that can detect breast cancer in its earliest and most treatable stages, to follow-up diagnostics, and eventually through ongoing treatment services. We believe in being there every step of the way for those facing breast cancer.

Check Yourself is a global movement that aims to raise awareness and start conversations about how women and men can take action for their own breast health through screening, detection and treatment. Screening guidelines vary by country and media reports about early detection can sometimes be confusing. This campaign is intended to help you better understand some of the common factors that can influence your personal breast cancer risk, and teach you not only about your risk, but also what actions you can take starting today! Watch the video below and get inspired by our Check Yourself dance video starring Paula Abdul, and spread the word on social media to as many women and men as possible.
