Why Breast Cancer?

The issue of breast cancer is painfully close to many people's hearts. Each year, over 200,000 women are diagnosed with invasive breast cancer while approximately 40,000 will die. With 2.9 million breast cancer survivors in the U.S. alone, almost everyone knows a life affected by a diagnosis. Greater awareness and early detection are two effective tools in preventing breast cancer related deaths, and The Breast Cancer Site provides both — through easy, online activities.

Access to mammography is a critical issue — breast cancer continues to be the second leading cause of death among women. Early detection is the key to survival and better treatment options, and mammography is among the best-known methods of early detection. Unfortunately, while overall mammogram rates have stabilized over the past decade, certain groups of women are still not receiving these lifesaving screenings, particularly the uninsured and those with less formal education.

With a simple daily click of the pink button at The Breast Cancer Site, visitors help provide mammograms to those in need. Visitors pay nothing. Mammograms are paid for by the site's sponsors and distributed by GreaterGood.com.

100% of sponsor advertising fees goes to our charitable partners.

In addition to clicking the pink Click Here to Give - it's FREE button, visitors can make early detection and survival of breast cancer possible by shopping in The Breast Cancer Site store. With each item purchased, shoppers generate funds for free mammograms for women in need. The store offers a wide array of items to show your support, including pink ribbon jewelry and apparel.

You can also learn more by visiting the About Breast Cancer page, which includes information from the latest reasearch and more. Or you can explore an interactive map and see how your clicks help.

Meet the Owners

GreaterGood is owned and operated by Tim Kunin and Greg Hesterberg, co-owners of CharityUSA.com (parent company of GreaterGood Network). Long-time friends and activists, they met at the University of Michigan while working on the Michigan Bottle Bill ballot campaign in 1976. In the late 1990s, they recognized that broad consumer-adoption of the Internet offered a new opportunity to raise funds for good causes. As enthusiastic supporters of The Hunger Site, they realized the power of providing busy Internet users with a fast, free and easy way to make a difference and launched EcologyFund.com to give people the means to support wilderness preservation efforts worldwide.

Tim Kunin is a life-long lover of wilderness, who has canoed and hiked for thousands of miles in the United States, Canada and Patagonia. He started working for environmental causes at the University of Michigan, where he walked 200 miles across the state to publicize the need for recycling. He has a wife, two children and a dog, Scout.

Tim has traveled extensively to visit charity partners and purchase some of the fair-trade products available on our sites. He is convinced that providing a market for products made by rural women artisans is the best method of reducing inter-generational poverty. Travels have taken Tim to Canada, Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, Columbia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Sweden, England, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Morocco, Mali, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Ethiopia, Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda, Mozambique, South Africa, Israel, India, and Afghanistan. Tim has purchased unique products in each of these countries which can in turn be purchased from the web stores here.

Greg Hesterberg was chairman of two statewide consumer and environmental organizations (MaryPIRG and PIRGIM) while in college. After twenty years running a successful publishing firm, Greg enjoys finding innovative ways to make the world a better place. Greg's two cats for many years, Tony and Junior, have passed on. In November of 2007 Greg adopted two sister kittens, Callie and Chloe. Their younger brother was the last one of the litter waiting to be adopted, and Greg couldn't leave him behind; so now Callie and Chloe spend their days playing with each other as well as their brother Casey.
