We believe that the best way to beat breast cancer is by preventing breast cancer. The most effective means to this end is with annual mammograms or thermograms. The BBF offers these services free of charge to those who cannot afford them.
We want to educate every woman in America about the importance of preventing breast cancer in their bodies. Our foot-in-the-door is our free mammogram or thermogram. This is the first step for so many women, and once they actually move forward with their checkup, we can then offer them the education they need to take care of their body and most likely avoid breast cancer in the future.
In 2020, the FDN begins a new chapter as a 501(C)(3) non-profit charity with the goal of providing 5,000 mammograms/thermograms in 2020, and doubling that number every year until we reach one million per year in 2027.
This will change the national breast cancer conversation from “Awareness” to “Prevention,” which is the founder's ultimate goal in honoring Becky Baker.
Becky's husband, Rick, launched the #Race4Prevention Tour after Becky passed away on Easter Sunday morning, 2017. One of the last things Becky said to Rick was that she was "sad that no one would ever remember her name." Rick promised her that no one would ever "forget her name." So, he launched The Becky Baker Foundation and deposited the one-million-dollar life insurance check from Becky's policy into an account to pay for 5,000 mammograms. He then wrapped his GTR and started driving the country. Along the way, he distributed 60,000 pens, 2,000 shirts, and 70,000 brochures, all with the message of free mammograms and thermograms. He drove over 34,000 miles through 37 states, making hundreds of new friends along the way. Today, the BBF has given away over 2,000 mammograms and Becky's name lives on.
