Breast Cancer Foundation (BCF) is a social service agency which advocates for the early detection of breast cancer and supports the breast cancer community in Singapore.
Established since 1997 in Singapore, BCF actively raises breast cancer awareness through talks, outreach events, research and publications that advocate for early detection through regular screening.
BCF supports those affected by breast cancer through psycho-social programmes, support groups and befriending activities.
BCF offers subsidies for prostheses and bras for lower-income women after their mastectomies via its Positive Appearance Scheme and runs a complimentary wig loan programme.
As a registered charity in Singapore, BCF is self-funded and is dependent on public donations to provide quality services and programmes for more women and their families affected by breast cancer.
BCF runs Singapore’s first Breast Cancer Centre at Sin Ming Court. The Centre also welcomes members of the public who wish to find out more about breast cancer.
BCF provides Benefits Advisory guidance and aid to patients, especially the newly diagnosed, supporting them in their emotional, psychosocial, and financial recovery. Patients are supported with information on sources of financial aid. Healing Through The Arts (HTTA) programmes and talks are also introduced to support those in recovery.
