Circle of Care
UCSF feels that every woman is entitled to a mammogram even though she may not be financially able to afford one. In keeping with that, UCSF along with Thompson Cancer Survival Center provided mammograms to several women from Serenity Ministries on July 30, 2019. These mammograms were paid for by the generous donors of UCSF. We were happy that we could deliver to these ladies a service that they could not afford on their own.
American Breast Cancer Support Association is a program of United Cancer Support Foundation, a 501 (c)3 faith-based charity.
Through our donor’s generous contributions, we are able to make a substantial impact in the lives of those who are uninsured or under-insured; meaning they have insurance but cannot afford the high deductible, sometimes as much as $6,000. Free mammogram screenings to men and women across the nation who are in need, gives an individual peace of mind about their breast health which encourages mental and economic health.
Through our health enrichment videos and our free mammogram screening program we have garnered lasting relationships with over 45 mammogram and radiology facilities across the nation, not to mention the hundreds of women and a few men who have and continue to reach out to ABCSA with cards and letters of “Thank You”. These relationships are dear to us and we remain forever grateful to our donors, whom we refer to as, “Impact Investors” and to the facilities who have so graciously worked with ABCSA to make this program the success it is today.
It is our honor to highlight just a few of the 45 mammogram/radiology facilities we have worked with across the nation.

Free Recliners for East Tennessee Cancer Patients
One of our support initiatives is Recliners for Recovery. It is designed to support cancer patients with comfort during this challenging time. The recliner can help the patient relax, as well as provide improved blood circulation in the legs, alleviate back pain and problems with nausea sometimes caused by chemotherapy.
United Cancer Support Foundation is providing local cancer patients with a new recliner. The procedure is simple. Just fill out our Application, we will verify the information on the completed forms and contact you to schedule a pick up date and time when a chair is available.
The images below show just a few of the hundreds of recliners we have gifted to recipients in the cancer community.
NOTE: The recliners are for office pick up ONLY. Please make sure to have two people with a truck or a van on the scheduled date.
