CMC Community Stories

Avon Foundation for Women

Since 1955, the Avon Foundation for Women has been working tirelessly to help prevent, treat, and ultimately eradicate breast cancer. With more than $815 million raised and donated to breast cancer programs around the world through 2013, Avon is the leading corporate supporter of the cause globally. Avon has been a major CMC funder for over 10 years, supporting awareness and education, access to care and support services.

CMC is part of Avon’s “Safety Net” program which supports public, community, and safety net hospitals and health care systems that provide breast care to low-income, at-risk, uninsured, and underinsured individuals, with the goal of supporting programs that improve access to treatment for the medically underserved.
