Request A Program Now

Our breast health programs are offered free to schools and community groups and on a donation-basis to businesses. Awareness is great, but action is better. We teach young people how to eat healthier, exercise, and perform breast self-exams. Our workshops educate our children, our coworkers and our neighbors throughout Long Island and the NY Metro area. Risk reduction is cumulative. By bringing our programs to high schools and colleges, we encourage the development of risk reducing and early detection habits early. Please help us plant the seed of knowledge and prevent breast cancer in our community.
