About breast cancer

This October, here's how you can take action

Get Involved

There are so many ways you can get involved and make a direct impact in the fight against breast cancer.

Get Screened

Screening tests help find breast cancer before any symptoms develop. When breast cancer is found and treated early, the chances of successful treatment are better. Find out more about breast cancer screening.

Put the spotlight on early detection

Our Get Screened program aims to increase colon, breast and cervical cancer screening rates among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) communities. Find out more.

Get Support

If you, or someone you care about has been diagnosed with cancer, you’ll have many questions and concerns. We’re here to help. We offer support and information for people with cancer and their family, friends and caregivers. Learn more about the support services we provide, which are free and confidential, and many are available in multiple languages.
