The National Breast Cancer Foundation in partnership with the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, also known as the Hispanic Evangelical Association, the nation’s largest Christian Hispanic organization, held the first-ever National Hispanic Breast Cancer Awareness Day (NHBCAD) through churches across America on Sunday, October 7, 2012.

The National Breast Cancer Foundation serves as the Senior Partner of the NHCLC’s Healthy Families Directive — partnering to save women’s lives by providing resources for the Hispanic Community, not only for women but also for the husbands, children, and the Church, which is a critical element.

The National Breast Cancer Foundation has become a stabilizing force in the lives of hundreds of thousands of women who have reached a crossroad in their lives from their encounter with breast cancer.  Through its National Mammography Program, NBCF addresses the growing concern of over 50 million uninsured people in America by providing free mammograms and diagnostic services in all 50 states through its hospital partners.

Charity Navigator, America’s premier charity evaluator, has awarded the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. (NBCF) its highest 4-star rating for eight consecutive years.  The rating is based on NBCF’s ability to responsibly manage its finances and operations.
