Hope for Every Woman®
United Breast Cancer Foundation’s mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of those affected by breast cancer. We strive to alleviate the stress and strain that cancer can cause to patients and families through fostering health and well-being with both traditional and holistic treatments. We provide service for all, regardless of age, race, gender or income.
Founded in October 2000, United Breast Cancer Foundation (UBCF) is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit that began as a small grassroots organization serving low-income, under and non-insured women and men in New York State. UBCF is headquartered in Huntington Station, NY and has a regional office in Annapolis, MD. We serve women, men and their families across the country through 7 life-supporting patient and family programs.
Ms. Stephanie Mastroianni, our Executive Director since 2001, has shaped UBCF into the wonderful organization that it is today due in large part to her personal experience with breast cancer. Stephanie's mother, Audrey B. Mastroianni (pictured to the left), passed away from this disease at the age of 42.
UBCF is committed to honoring Audrey's memory through our passionate dedication to our mission, programs and superior client care.
