The goal of the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade is to benefit all people affected with Breast Cancer through research, clinical care, support services, education and early detection, but there is special emphasis on reaching the medically underserved, including low-income, elderly and minority, and those without adequate health insurance. Reversing historical disparities in breast cancer care is a priority of the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade.
Mission: Avon Products, Inc. is committed to being the company for women, and in support of this mission, the Avon Foundation and its various projects (including the Avon Walks for Breast Cancer) is responding to the needs of women and their families by funding the fight against the most commonly diagnosed cancer among women: breast cancer. This is accomplished through a unique initiative called the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade, which from 1993 through 2002 reached its 10-year goal of $250,000,000 net in total funds raised worldwide to fund access to care and finding a cure for breast cancer. In addition to the US, Avon now supports programs for breast cancer and other vital women's health issues in 50 countries around the world.
