The Brem Foundation maximizes every woman’s chance of finding an early, curable breast cancer by providing expert education to women between the ages of 30-64 in the Washington, D.C. area about risk factors, screening options, self-advocacy, and physician training.

 
 
 

Education: B The Cure

Breast cancer screenings must be based on each woman’s individual risk factors. There is no “one size fits all approach.” Brem’s B the Cure program holds breast health events, led by Expert Educators, at community organizations, corporate offices and religious institutions. This life-saving curriculum teaches women about their real risk factors, corresponding screening options and the need to advocate for themselves.


Access: The B-Fund

When a woman has an abnormal screening mammogram or experiences worrisome symptoms, she needs a diagnostic test to know whether she has breast cancer. The Brem Foundation’s B-Fund pays for diagnostic tests for underinsured women in the DC area, giving them access to life-saving technologies and peace of mind -regardless of their background or financial
situation.


Physician Training: The Brem Fellowship

The Brem Foundation supports the only breast-fellowship in the country that includes community service.
Brem Fellows participate in a physician-training program that incorporates deep commitment to the most cutting-edge
techniques in breast cancer diagnosis with the highest standards of care and compassion

Re-Bra Initiative

The Brem Foundation’s Re-Bra initiative is a unique, unprecedented, and easy way for women – including those who have
undergone breast surgery - to donate their bras to underserved women who cannot afford bras of their own. Every donated bra is dry-cleaned and tagged with the Brem Breast Health Bill of Rights, providing the recipients with valuable breast health education.
