Founded in 1990, Breast Cancer Action was started by women in a San Francisco breast cancer support group who were frustrated by the lack of knowledge about their disease. Led by the late Elenore Pred, they created an organization that would help transform breast cancer from a private medical crisis to a public health emergency.
BCA continues this work, and is now a national education and activist organization that challenges assumptions and inspires change to end the breast cancer epidemic.
While BCA has thousands of supporters throughout the United States and abroad, we do not have chapters in other cities. We encourage those who are interested in being a part of our work to subscribe to our newsletter and monthly ealert.
