Millions of women are diagnosed with breast cancer every year in the United States. In San Bernardino County breast cancer rates are increasing each year among Asian American women. It is considered to be the second leading cause of death compared to other cancers among Asian women. In the Inland Empire, there is a lack of health services aimed specifically at Asian Americans. The foundation aspires to be culturally competent and bring breast cancer awareness to all women. Through an expansive service that includes a navigation program lead by breast cancer survivors, outreach to local health care institutions for breast cancer screenings, as well as offering mental health counseling and seminars to help women and their families cope with their diagnosis as well as post-treatment care. The Breast Cancer Foundation for Asian American Women (BCFAAW) is a not-for-profit organization that aims to provide education, support, and advocacy for the Asian community throughout the Inland Empire.
