Since its inception, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) has been at the forefront of promoting awareness of breast cancer issues and has evolved along with the national dialogue on breast cancer. NBCAM recognizes that, although many great strides have been made in breast cancer awareness and treatment, there remains much to be accomplished. Today, we remain dedicated to educating and empowering women to take charge of their own breast health.

The BigWigs campaign engages local corporate and community leaders as representatives in the fight against breast cancer. During the 4 week campaign, each BigWig will raise or give a minimum of $1,000, which will be used to ensure access to essential breast health services and education programs, and support research to find the cures for breast cancer. Through this program, 75 percent of funds raised remain in local communities to help fund local breast cancer initiatives.
