Be Aware is a non-profit organization dedicated to saving women's lives by ensuring that breast cancer is diagnosed and identified at the first sign and in the earliest stage of breast cancer. Our goal is to motivate and inspire women to consistently follow our Early Detection Guidelines; Mammography Guidelines, Physician Exam, Breast Self-Exam, and a Second Opinion.

ProgramsThe Mission and Goals of the Be Aware Foundation are accomplished through community education. We reach out to the community through corporate worksites, and other public and private resources. The survival rate is greater than 95%, when breast cancer is detected early. We offer educational programs throughout Southern California, where a breast cancer survivor and an RN team up to teach how to manage breast health. Our educational programs are supplemented by an interactive email reminder system. You can sign up for our monthly email reminders for self exam and our annual reminders for clinical exams and mammograms.
