TO ERADICATE BREAST CANCER AS A LIFE - THREATENING DISEASE
BCF is a non-profit organisation set up in 1997 with the mission of eradicating breast cancer as a life-threatening disease. To achieve this, it propagates awareness and education through talks, seminars, exhibitions and publications, and advocates early detection through regular screening. Support and volunteer programmes are organised for survivors and their families through counselling and healing through art activities – all with the aim of helping survivors regain their active life after breast cancer. BCF is one of the few breast cancer advocacy groups in the world with a Men's Support League to emphasise men's roles in society's fight against this affliction.

About BCF's New Logo
The new logo comprises two ribbons placed side by side to form a heart, the universal symbol of both male and female. The two ribbons represent the changing relationship dynamics of society today, that information dissemination and moral support for breast cancer are no longer driven by women alone but by men as well. This is why the grey ribbon represents the male and the pink represents the female advocate. By pairing the grey with the pink, BCF is making a bold statement that breast cancer is no longer just about women but that men also play an equally important role in spreading the word.
Our breast cancer survivors need encouragement and support to help them live fulfilling lives. Battling cancer is one of the most devastating experiences for a woman and her family. Through our Support Groups and Volunteer Counselling Programmes, we come alongside our survivors to support them on their journeys to continue living with hope and courage.

BCF would like to share this video with as many people as possible to raise awareness for the early detection of breast cancer so we can save more lives. Please share the Pink Glove Dance video with your coworkers, friends, family and neighbors.
BCF is proud and very pleased to announce that our Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM) 2010 advertising campaign, "Are you obsessed with the right things?", crafted by DDB, was awarded the Effies Gold Award 2011, for the category: non-profit/pro-bono/public service. The award was presented on 31 May 2011, by the Institute of Advertising Singapore at the Shangri La Hotel.
Providing emotional support and information
BCF recognises the importance of support for the newly diagnosed patient, the survivor walking the road to recovery, and the affected family members. Coping with breast cancer and its treatment can be difficult, and the ability of all those involved to stay mentally strong and healthy is crucial.
Come, join us at the monthly Support Group meetings and meet other breast cancer patients and survivors. Share in their experiences and coping strategies, ask questions and make new friends.
Patients, either newly diagnosed or undergoing treatments are welcome to join the meetings.
