Our Work

Breast cancer is the most common invasive cancer in females. It is also a leading cause of cancer deaths among females.

Substantial support for breast cancer awareness and research funding has helped create advances in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. Breast cancer survival rates have increased, and the number of deaths associated with this disease is steadily declining, largely due to factors such as earlier detection, a new personalized approach to treatment and a better understanding of the disease.

The Pillars of Our Operations

Our top priority is educating women on what they can do to be proactive with their breast health.
Part of the greatest challenges to surviving cancer in sub-Saharan Africa is poor access to and high cost of treatment.
It is sad that women keep dying from cervical cancer when early detection can save them.
BRECAN’s aggressive advocacy is beginning to post impressive results and gain traction.
