Description of Organization

Breast Cancer Foundation (BCF) is a social service agency which advocates for the early detection of breast cancer and supports the breast cancer community in Singapore. Established since 1997 in Singapore, BCF actively raises breast cancer awareness through talks, events, research and publications that advocate for early detection through regular screening. BCF supports those affected by breast cancer through psycho-social programmes, support groups and befriending activities. BCF offers subsidy assistance to support low-income women for their time mammogram screenings and runs a?complimentary wig loan programme. As a?registered charity in Singapore,?BCF is?self-funded and is dependent on public donations to provide quality services and programmes?for more?women and their families.?BCF?runs Singapore’s very? first? Breast Cancer Centre at Sin Ming Court. The Centre also welcomes members of the public who wish to find out more about breast cancer.
