Breast Cancer Research and Support Foundations You Can Donate To

Written by: Carla De Guzman/Friday, Oct 06, 2017 02:41 AM

We at Lifestyle Network take breast cancer awareness very seriously. From giving yourself a breast exam to tackling stories of survivors, we’ve discussed every story under the sun. But this time we want to put focus on organizations facing breast cancer head on, and are on the front lines of the war on breast cancer. There are many kinds of organizations on breast cancer, and we hope this little primer can help you choose where to send your help. 

Breast Cancer Medical Service Charities

These charities are based mostly in hospitals, and are institutions working with individual patients in seeking treatment. They focus on using their funds for education as well—by teaching their local community about early detection and how to support those who have it.

Charity Navigator chooses Atlanta-based It’s the Journey, Inc. and The American-Italian Cancer Foundation as highly rated charities. 

 

Breast Cancer Research Charities

The best way to stop a disease is to find a cure. These charities are focused on funding for scientists and medical experts to come up with new ways of treatments and eventual cure of breast cancer.

On this end, the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation both come highly recommended. 

 

Breast Cancer Support Service Charities

These organizations are working tirelessly to address the individual needs of breast cancer fighters, including financial aid and human support. Their goals are to build a community, with support programs and financial resources for those impacted by cancer.

Casting For Recovery, Sharsheret and the Bay Cancer Connections all come highly recommended.
