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.
For women in need, access to the proper breast care can be a painful struggle. The Brem Foundation’s access programs, including Wheels for Women and the B-Fund, tackle these obstacles by paying for diagnostic tests and offering transportation at no cost to patients in need.
The Brem Fellowship is the only breast-imaging fellowship in the country with a community service and public outreach component to physician training. In addition to learning how to utilize the most advanced techniques to make rapid, precise diagnoses, Brem Fellows reach out to women in varied communities to teach them about breast health and self-advocacy.
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.
