A small group of 24 founding members, Egyptians and expatriates concerned with the high incidence of breast cancer and the lack of related support services in Egypt joined together to form an organization to address the problem. Individually they represent health care professionals, breast cancer survivors, and civic spirited citizens. Collectively they are a driving force to bring breast cancer awareness, education, and services to Egyptian women.

The Breast Cancer Foundation of Egypt (BCFE) is an NGO registered with the Ministry of Social Solidarity, registration number 5840/2004.

Life Without Breast Cancer
BCFE's mission is to promote breast health through breast cancer awareness, education, and research and to facilitate services and support to women in all social and economic strata.
  • Build a culturally sensitive physical and emotional support system to enhance the quality of life for women with breast cancer and their families.
  • Collect a body of statistics to support research and promote enlightened care.
  • Facilitate access to affordable and high quality professional diagnostic treatment, and rehabilitative services for women in all economic strata.
  • Educate the public about breast cancer, the importance of early detection, and eradicate the stigma attached to having breast cancer.
