Free Breast Screenings
Many women at risk for breast cancer in this country are under insured or do not have any health insurance at all. United Breast Cancer Foundation is proud to be able to offer many women free or low cost breast screenings and follow-up care at their local hospitals and health centers. We are presently expanding this program to service an area near you. UBCF creates partnerships with hospitals covering the costs of a breast screening and any necessary follow-up work for women who otherwise would not be screened.
UBCF has created a scholarship fund for college bound students of single parent homes, entitled the ” Audrey B. Mastroianni Scholarship Fund.” It’s designed to help students who have suffered a loss due to breast cancer and are in need of financial assistance in order to make their higher education dreams a reality. The College Fund was set up in honor of Audrey B. Mastroianni, a firm believer in education and continued personal enrichment.

It is imperative for a women recovering from breast cancer to have every opportunity to regain her confidence. Making a reconstruction decision can be complicated for any woman. Through opportunities such as this one, reconstructive surgery can help a women feel whole, spiritually and physically.
United Breast Cancer Foundation is financially assisting children whose families have been directly affected by breast cancer. We currently support Josh and Caitlin in the U.S., Cesar and Jeffrey in Columbia, and Paul in South Africa. Josh and Caitlin’s mother recently passed away from cancer. Our funds assist them in many ways; from paying medical bills to purchasing food, clean water and clothing. We will continue to follow the progress of all the children that UBCF sponsors through the years and help them to achieve their full potential and impact their communities for the better.
UBCF believes it is critical that a patient be treated as a whole person. This includes not only traditional medical approaches to breast cancer, but also caring for the individual’s emotional and spiritual well-being. Therapies often include diet and nutrition supplements, mind/body therapies, energy healing, reflexology, lymphatic massage and acupuncture.
Services are tailored to individual needs and are conducted in addition to treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. Working with the mind-body-spirit connection is just as vital as treating the tumor.
