We Are Breast Cancer Prevention Partners (BCPP)
A message from Jeanne Rizzo, R.N., President and CEO
On March 6, 2017 Breast Cancer Fund changed our name to Breast Cancer Prevention Partners (BCPP). A new name. A new look. Same unwavering commitment to prevent breast cancer through our work with partners like you.
In talking with you and others like you we found a common view that Breast Cancer Fund, as a name, was not differentiating enough. Nor did it telegraph who we are and what we are about. Which is prevention.
So we changed our name but not our mission, our commitment to our partners, or our work.
We remain the leading science-based policy and advocacy organization working to prevent breast cancer by eliminating our exposure to toxic chemicals and radiation. Our focus is on the intersection of breast cancer prevention and environmental health. That work continues and thrives.
For almost 25 years we’ve been a part of so many important victories with you at our side. Looking ahead our work is more important than ever before. There is so much more to do.
To that end we also introduced a new interactive website under our new name. It is educational, engaging and provide many ways for you to get involved with breast cancer prevention.
We are extremely excited about our name change and look forward to writing our next chapter together.
