Philippine Foundation for Breast Cancer
The Philippines has the highest breast cancer rates in Southeast Asia. Breast cancer makes up 16% of new cancer diagnosis in the Philippines, and 30% of cancer among women. According to doctor’s estimates, 3 out of 100 Filipino women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime.
Located in East Avenue Medical Center’s Breast Care Center, the Philippine Foundation for Breast Care, Inc. (PFBCI) is the Philippines’ only breast care advocate and support group in a public hospital.
Its mission is abbreviated to BREAST, which stands for breast care, resource, empowerment, advocacy, support, and treatment of breast cancer and other breast-related diseases. PFBCI aims to become the leading institution in the fight against breast cancer.
Most of its programs center on breast cancer awareness. The foundation offers free breast screening, mammography, stereotactic biopsy, financial assistance, counseling, surveillance, home visits, and social events for breast cancer patients.
The PFBCI is currently lobbying for the passage of the Cancer Control Act, which seeks to make cancer treatment more accessible and affordable for Filipinos.
