The Mission Of Irish Cancer Society
We strive to ensure that fewer people in Ireland get cancer and that those that do so receive the best care, treatment, information and support. We listen, we support, we provide care and financial assistance, we create awareness, we provide information, we fund research and we influence decisions about cancer. We are an independent voice for cancer patients and their families. Our work is only made possible by the commitment, generosity and tireless efforts of our donors, supporters, volunteers, researchers and staff.
Our long-term vision is a future without cancer. This will not be achieved in the lifetime of this Strategy Statement, but we are ambitious to succeed, and each year brings new developments, new services and renewed hope. Each year we learn more about what causes cancer and how to prevent it. Each year there are new advances in treatment, and we learn more about how to improve the quality of life of people who have cancer, their families and friends.
To match our ambition, we have agreed a set of priorities and plans for the next five years 2013 - 2017 which are comprehensive and far-reaching. We are determined to deliver.Irish Cancer Society - Donate here.
The Mission Of NBCF
NBCF’s mission is to help women now by providing help and inspiring hope to those affected by breast cancer through early detection, education and support services.
Breast cancer is one of the leading health crises for women in the United States. 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. There is currently no known cure for breast cancer, and its early diagnosis is critical to survival.
However, with increased healthcare costs and a rapidly increasing percentage of uninsured women, many simply cannot afford the cost of screening tests. These women are at a significantly higher risk of dying from breast cancer if later diagnosed.
That’s why NBCF provides free mammograms to women across the United States through our network of hospitals. We are now joining hands with people around the world to provide breast cancer education.
