BREAST CANCER. It is diagnosed to women of ALL race, creed, color, monetary value, habits, likes, dislikes, religious belief-NONE OF IT MATTERS. What matters is that it’s DETECTABLE. What matters most is that 40,598 women died of cancer in 2007 (most recent stat). What matter is the breast cancer is the most lethal cancer among LATINAS and the most diagnosed cancer from ALL WOMEN EVERY WHERE. *
ABF exists to change these statistics. Through education, we strive to make early detection the STANDARD. Through emotional and fiscal support, we work to make different women’s battle just a little more DO-ABLE. Through ABF’s Street Teams, we seek to raise awareness EVERYWHERE. Through Little Diva’s For A Cure, we focus on teaching young girls now how important YOU are and that taking care of and knowing your body from a young age is PRICELESS.
Through YOU, we are able to make this happen.
