Who is the United Breast Cancer Foundation?
 

Who is The United Breast Cancer Foundation
  • UBCF offers the public innovative and unique programs that ensure Every Woman receives proper medical care and financial assistance with the utmost respect and dignity. We offer seven very unique and special patient and family programs including: Free Breast Screening Program, Holistic Care, Breast Reconstructive Surgery, Domestic Services, Individual Grants, Audrey B. Mastroianni College Scholarship and Child Sponsorship. I have attached a separate document describing these programs in greater detail.
  • UBCF provides grants to hospitals and community health centers nationwide, as well to individuals and families. These funds are used for patient care, breast health and wellness programs, education and holistic and complementary therapies.
  • UBCF has never denied service to anyone regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, income or insurance.
  • UBCF's main goal is to assist patients and families affected by breast cancer that are under or non-insured and low-income. Many of the women assisted in the LA area are non-insured, bellow poverty level and non-English speaking. We have found that this particular group of people or demographic are at particularly high risk for breast cancer due to the fact that they do not have access to proper health care or are intimidated to take advantage of free and low-cost health care options. UBCF has therefore had to support public outreach campaigns to educate at-risk women, men and families with regards to breast cancer, breast health and their options for health care.
  • At the heart of UBCF resides our main priority, to make a positive difference in the lives of those affected by breast cancer. UBCF offers direct assistance to individuals and families who are managing breast cancer. UBCF is a "hands-on" organization, providing each client with personal, one-on-one attention.
  • While UBCF operates nationally, we serve each client and family with consideration, an open heart and attentive ear. Our goal is to ease the stress and strain that breast cancer causes and so we aspire to navigate our clients along their journey, providing opportunities for each individual to
    cultivate a more peaceful and enriching experience.
  • UBCF assists the public by providing breast screening services, assistance with treatment, after-care, educational material, patient and family assistance, scholarships to wellness centers and educational scholarships. We strive to foster health and well-being through both traditional and holistic treatments.
  • UBCF is unlike any other national breast cancer organization. We approach our client's requests on an individual basis, tailoring support according to their unique and personal needs whether they need a screening, are managing breast cancer or are in remission. For example, our Individual Grant Program was created to assist each client according to their particular financial needs.
    We have a true understanding that each individual struggles with a wide variety of issues while receiving treatment, in remission or in recovery.
  • UBCF has established programs that provide patient and family support during the entire course of a clients journey, from education and prevention to screening, complementary therapies and financial assistance with medical and living expenses. We focus not only on educating the public and finding a cure for breast cancer but helping our clients heal their bodies, minds and spirits.
  • Here at UBCF, we take a whole-body approach to cancer treatment and recovery, encouraging our clients to pursue pairing holistic and complementary medicine with cutting-edge western medicine. Cancer is often termed a disease, defined as an abnormal condition that impairs bodily functions. However, we believe cancer is also a "dis-ease" where the body is out of its natural state of
    "ease", harmony and balance. UBCF aims to inform our clientele that by coupling a western approach to treating cancer with complementary medicine, their natural state of balance, harmony and ease may return and even flourish in a way never previously experienced.
  • Another outstanding program that we offer is our Free Breast Screening Program. This wonderful program provides our clients with a free or low-cost breast screening of their choice, whether it is a mammography, ultrasound, thermography, MRI or CT Scan. No other organization supports such a variety of screening options for clients of any age.
  • The United Breast Cancer Foundation has never turned down a request for assistance. While many organizations will offer assistance, there are often age requirements, particularly with providing breast screenings. Our Free Breast Screening Program will fund woman and men who qualify regardless of age, gender, ethnicity or income. Another very special program we offer to family
    members is the Audrey B. Mastroianni College Scholarship. This scholarship enables students who have suffered the loss of a parent due to breast cancer to pursue their higher educational goals.
  • UBCF removes the obstacles and �red tape� that breast cancer patients and their families often encounter with other more corporate organizations. While UBCF is a national organization, we maintain a �boutique� operating style and an intimate approach to client care and service, ensuring that every person who seeks our assistance is treated with honor and reverence.
