ABOUT US

Prevent Today Breast Cancer Foundation is a grassroots pending 501(c)(3) non-profit organization focused on prevention and early detection of breast cancer in women.

OUR VISION

Prevent Today Breast Cancer Foundation sees a world in which fewer people die from breast cancer. We aim to educate and inspire women to move from awareness to action, practicing risk reduction and early detection as a part of a proactive life.

OUR STORY

Our founder, Roxanne Spicer Curry was diagnosed with breast cancer finding a lump in self detection. Having lost her grandmother to breast cancer before birth, she still was unaware of the seriousness for early detection and prevention.

REDUCE YOUR RISK

SIMPLE EVERYDAY CHOICES FOR RISK REDUCTION

There are easy things we can all do to lower our risk, starting with leading a healthy lifestyle. Your 20s and 30s are the ideal time, but you can start adopting new habits that can reduce your lifelong risk of breast cancer at any age.

ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS

The chemicals in our environment play a role in altering our biological processes. We now know that exposures to toxic chemicals and radiation are connected to our breast cancer risk.

CHILD AND BREAST FEEDING

A woman’s childbearing history also influences her risk of developing both breast and ovarian cancer. Pregnancy transforms and stabilizes the cells that comprise milk-producing glands and ducts, so the earlier this transformation happens, the lower the risk of breast cancer.

REGULAR EXERCISE

Maintaining a healthy weight is crucial— there is a clear link between obesity and breast cancer because of the excess estrogen produced by excess fatty tissue. You’ve heard it before, but we’ll tell you again: being active is key.

EAT WELL LIVE WELL

Research has shown that the food you put in your body has a direct link to your health. Fill up on cancer-fighting fruits and vegetables, make sure you get all your vitamins, and avoid red meat research has shown a 12% increase in breast cancer risk per 50g of red meat consumed on average each day.

VITAMIN D

Vitamin D is known to help reduce the incidence of breast and ovarian cancer by slowing the growth of cancer cells. Research shows a 2.5x increase in breast cancer in individuals with a Vitamin D deficiency, and a possible increase in ovarian cancer risk.

EXCESS ALCOHOL

Cut back on cocktails. Research shows a 10% increase in breast cancer risk for every 10g of alcohol that’s one standard drink consumed on average each day. Limit alcohol to one drink per day or eliminate it entirely.
