The Foundationís Breast Care Fund grants support the development of breast cancer education and outreach activities, particularly breast health education and early detection services for underserved women. Programs of interest include those that recruit women for both first time and annual screenings; those that develop partnerships between community-based outreach providers and local medical providers; and those that work with health care providers to ensure proper clinical follow-up of abnormal screening results. The Fund is also interested in programs that educate older women (ages 65 and older) about Medicare coverage of annual screening mammograms and those that assist older women in obtaining the service from Medicare providers. Grants are awarded to community-based programs and/or health care agencies that provide medically underserved women aged 40 and older with direct access to breast cancer education, annual clinical screening services, and prompt follow-up care.
