Huntington Station, NY (PRWEB) October 17, 2014 -- October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and the United Breast Cancer Foundation (UBCF) would like to take this opportunity to remind women of all ages to make an appointment for their breast cancer screening. During the month of October, UBCF is conducting a fundraising campaign to raise $10,000 for their Breast Screening Program. UBCF provides free or low cost breast screenings to women and men regardless of age, race, gender, income or medical insurance. UBCF supports all types of screening technologies, from mammography and ultrasound to breast thermography and MRI.
According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their life time. This is a startling statistic that must change. Early detection is the greatest defense against breast cancer, so tell three women you know and love to get their breast screening during October Breast Cancer Awareness month.
People across the country can support the Breast Screening Program by donating time, money, property (vehicle, boat, timeshare, land, etc) or gifts-in-kind.UBCF accepts cash, vehicle and property donations on their website at http://www.ubcf.info. Donors may send checks to UBCF, 205 Depot Road, Huntington Station, NY 11746, or donate through the Combined Federal Campaign, #77934. For more information about donating call 1-888-433-6207 toll free.
Stephanie Mastroianni, Executive Director for UBCF, reminds supporters that donating a car is a fast and easy way to help the foundation. “By donating your vehicle you’ll help fund screenings for those who would not normally be able to afford this critical procedure. And during October all of the funds received from this vital funding source will go towards the Breast Screening Program.”
Throughout the year UBCF offers educational, support, and financial aid programs for those affected by breast cancer. The United Breast Cancer Foundation is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit, working to increase awareness of breast cancer and breast health.
Founded in 2000, the United Breast Cancer Foundation mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of those affected by breast cancer. UBCF offers the community patient and family programs dedicated to breast cancer screening and prevention, treatment and patient health and well-being. UBCF educates the public on a variety of breast cancer issues, including: coping with breast cancer, family support, environmental awareness, dietary options, complimentary therapies, research, and prevention.
