The Brem Foundation maximizes women’s chances of finding curable breast cancer through expert education about early detection, access to diagnostic tests, and physician training.

Education

Personalization is everywhere. You personalize your Facebook page, your food, your wardrobe, and your phone...but not your breast cancer screening. You should. The most effective way to maximize your chances of finding early, curable breast cancer is to personalize your screening based on your individual risk factors because there is no “one size fits all” for breast cancer screening.

Brem’s program, Get Screened: On Time, Every Time offers digital and expert-led breast-health education events. Events are often hosted by corporate offices, community organizations, religious institutions, and private homes. The curriculum used for Get Screened: On Time, Every Time is created by breast-health experts and is not utilized by any other organization.

Access

Education is only as good as the tests a woman can access when it comes to breast cancer screening. Most women can get screening mammograms for free. When women have an abnormal screening mammogram or breast cancer symptoms, they need a diagnostic test to determine whether they have breast cancer. For under-resourced women, access to high quality breast care can feel like Mission Impossible. With Brem Foundation’s access programs, Wheels for Women in partnership with Lyft and the B-Fund, we tackle obstacles by offering transportation and funding diagnostic tests at no cost to patients in need.

Physician Training

The Brem Fellowship is the only breast-imaging fellowship in the country with a community service and public outreach component. In addition to learning how to utilize the most advanced techniques to make rapid, precise diagnoses, Brem Fellows reach out to women in diverse communities to teach them about breast health, screening options and self-advocacy.

Re-Bra Program

The Re-Bra Program is a unique, unprecedented, and easy way for women – including those who have undergone breast surgery - to donate their bras to women who cannot afford them. Every donated bra is dry-cleaned and tagged with the Brem Breast Health Bill of Rights, providing the recipients with valuable breast health information in English and Spanish.
