The Avon Breast Cancer Crusade (“Avon BCC”) Safety Net Funding Initiative supports public, community, and safety net hospitals and health care systems that provide breast care to low-income, at-risk, uninsured and underinsured individuals.  The goal of this initiative is to support programs that improve access to high quality and timely breast diagnostics and treatment for the medically underserved.  A demonstrated commitment to providing health care to underserved populations will be considered in the review process.  Additionally, please see a summary of all of ABCC’s 2017 funding initiatives.
