Today, 1 in 8 women have a chance of being diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. In the East Bay, Black, Hispanic and Asian women are facing a higher breast cancer mortality rate despite advances in treatment and early diagnosis.
These are mothers, daughters, sisters and important loved ones that are not getting the early screening that they need to keep them healthy.
Give today to support the East Bay Breast Cancer Fund, powered by Community Health Charities, and you can make a difference!
- Increase breast cancer screenings
- Provide resources to educate women on their options and healthy living
- Advance research for risk-reduction and treatment
- Improve access to health services and life-saving treatments

Early detection saved my life! I’ve been cancer free for nine years!
No one in my family had breast cancer, or any form of cancer that I was aware of. So it was a total shock to me when I was diagnosed at 44.
