If you want to help fight the fight against breast cancer, joining a breast cancer organization or joining in events that a breast cancer organization hosts can be a powerful way for you to help support the causes of breast cancer advocacy. A breast cancer organization works to increase breast cancer awareness and breast cancer education so that all women know everything they need to know about the disease, ways to work to prevent them getting the disease as well as the importance of self-examinations for early detection.
A breast cancer organization also works to raise funds for researches in breast cancer treatment and to one day eradicate breast cancer forever. Although the disease is still far too prevalent in the United States and throughout the world, there is some good news. Breast cancer survival rates have gone up somewhat and more work continues to be done to further increase survival rates as well as prevent the disease from even occurring.
There are many breast cancer organizations in the United States. Some of these are grass roots organizations, some of these are non-profit organizations, some are NPOs that are created and funded by professional commercial companies. All of these different organizations work both alone and together to try to do everything possible to further the cause of breast cancer advocacy.
One of the largest grassroots based breast cancer organizations is the National Breast Cancer Coalition. The National Breast Cancer Coalition was formed in 1991, and has grown to include hundreds of grassroots organizations throughout the country.
