Right Action for Women
Right Action for Women provides assistance to women who are at increased risk for breast cancer and do not have insurance or the financial flexibility to cover the high costs associated with breast screenings.
In 2008, after receiving her breast cancer diagnosis, Christina Applegate created the foundation to educate women about what it means to be at “high risk” for breast cancer and encourage them to talk to their doctors about appropriate screening. Right Action for Women provides aid to individuals who are at increased risk for breast cancer and do not have insurance or the financial flexibility to cover the high costs associated with breast screenings.
To make the Right Action for Women program a reality, Christina partnered with the Cancer Support Community to bring together thought-leaders in the field of genetics, oncology, psychology, nutrition, legal aid, advocacy and patient financial assistance to lend their expertise and advice on online education, financial assistance and advocacy. This group became Right Action for Women’s Advisory Council.
Today, Right Action for Women has already assisted hundreds of women with the high cost of MRI screening, and it continues to provide support and education to women everywhere to better understand what increased risk means. But more assistance is needed. Please consider making a contribution today – click DONATE above.
