There are many hard working Americans who have lost their jobs, do not have health insurance, or face financial hardships on a regular basis.  We all know, breast cancer does not discriminate.  One in eight people will be diagnosed with breast cancer, regardless of the current economy.  UBCF has served communities nation-wide for 10 years and it is critical that more funding is acquired in order to ensure that their mission lives on for years to come.
The mission of UBCF is to make a positive impact on the lives of those affected by and afflicted with breast cancer.  UBCF provides financial support to woman and their families by giving access to preventative and holistic therapies, never denying anyone service regardless of age, race, gender or income, while also giving grants to hospitals active in the research for a cure.  The most important fact is that the United Breast Cancer Foundation came about to ease the stress and strain that cancer can cause a patient and their families, while creating & promoting health and wellness.
