Breast Care for Washington, DC was founded in 2012 in response to the breast cancer mortality rate in the nation’s capital. The organization promotes access to breast cancer screening, diagnostics and treatment for all women regardless of their ability to pay. These robust efforts eliminate as many barriers to screening as possible faced by the high-risk target population. Qlarant Foundation’s grant defrays direct costs of providing mammograms to uninsured women.
