Call to Action

The No Surrender Breast Cancer Foundation launched the Before Forty Initiative to save the lives of young women who don’t even know they have breast cancer, yet.

Until there is a cure, the ONLY defense we have is through early detection. This includes, monthly, self breast exams, baseline mammograms* starting at the age of 35 and at age 30 if you are from a high risk group particularly women who are African American, of Ashkenazi heritage or if there is a family history of the disease; and women who have what are known as “dense breasts.”


We encourage women to get breast ultrasounds as a follow up to their baseline mammogram, because some cancers show up on one test and not the other. And if anything is found to be inconclusive or suspicious, we urge all women to never “watch and wait” but to insist on a breast MRI for a more complete view of the breast more

The No Surrender Outreach Center

We are proud to offer local support. Our pilot program is now open in Oyster Bay, Long Island. The Outreach Center helps patients while they are in treatment and cannot attend to certain tasks because of limitations due to surgery or reconstruction.

Our teams of volunteers shovel driveways, rake leaves, mow lawns, run errands, aid in transportation to doctors and hospital appointments, offer childcare and one-on-one support. In the near future, based on our Oyster Bay model, we plan on opening No Surrender Outreach Centers across the country....
