About the Breast Cancer Support Fund
In a crowded landscape of breast cancer organizations, the Breast Cancer Support Fund is the only national charity providing funds to help ease the financial burden that accompanies a breast cancer diagnosis.
Every year, millions are raised in the name of breast cancer and directed to research and education, while many patients struggle to pay expenses related to their diagnosis and treatment.
The truth about breast cancer is that the financial burden can be just as devastating as the physical and emotional impact. In Canada, more than 26,000 people will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year and too many patients will face a financial crisis.
This is why the Breast Cancer Support Fund exists – to bridge the gap between the financial reality faced by breast cancer patients and the limited financial assistance available.
Our goal, with the help of individuals and organizations, is to be a change maker among breast cancer organizations by raising funds to help breast cancer patients, as we build a community of support.
