Mission Statement

The Be Aware Foundation's mission is to save women's lives by increasing the early detection of breast cancer. The Foundation will do this by educating and empowering women to embrace the Be Aware guidelines and inspire other women to do the same.

Description

The Be Aware Foundation is committed to saving women's lives by promoting the early detection guidelines for breast cancer. Every woman should follow these early detection guidelines:

  • Monthly Breast Self Exam beginning at age 20
  • Annual Mammogram beginning at age 40 (or earlier if indicated)
  • Annual Clinical Exam with a medical professional
  • Get a Second Opinion - when in doubt, trust your intuition!

To promote the early detction guidelines we offer a program, called Be Aware, to local businesses and organizations in Orange County. The message of the Be Aware program is one of empowerment and action. Participants have an opportunity to hear the inspiring story of a breast cancer survivor and learn early detection guidelines from a nurse. This personal approach lessens fears about breast cancer and promotes taking charge of breast health. At the conclusion of the Be Aware program each participant completes a Personal Plan of Action, commits to following the early detection guidelines and signs-up to receive reminder e-mails from www.beawarefoundation.org
