What is Barbells for Boobs?
Barbells for Boobs® is a 501(c)3 nonprofit breast cancer organization dedicated to the early detection of breast cancer, with an emphasis on women under the age of 40 and men. We believe that everyone has a RIGHT to know if they are living with breast cancer.
Are you a non-profit?
Yes, we are a 501(c)3 non-profit breast cancer organization. Our Tax ID is 27-2027629.
Do you provide treatment for breast cancer?
We are neither a treatment provider nor a medical provider of any kind. Should a patient receive a malignant diagnosis through our funding, our grantees will ensure they are navigated to an appropriate treatment support program, although our funding does not cover the costs of treatment. Any issues pertaining to treatment should be reviewed and discussed with the patient’s physician. If someone is in need of treatment support, we are happy to share any information on resources we trust that might be able to provide assistance.
I need a screening/diagnostic service, but I don't know where to start...can you help me?
Barbells for Boobs is committed to being a proactive voice in early detection and provider of resources to those that typically would not have access to screening and diagnostic procedures. If you’re looking to find a breast health service and perhaps don’t know where to begin, how to find a local resource, or if there is funding through our grant program in your community to support you, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. Use the Get Screened Form on our website and our team will assist you with providing information on resources in your area.
Can we choose our own charity to donate to?
No. All funds collected from Barbells for Boobs events will contribute to support our nationwide grant program. Please refer to our terms and conditions for more information.
