Welcome to The Caribbean Breast Cancer Foundation Inc.
The Caribbean Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) is a Texas non-profit organization founded by Dr. F. Paula Abraham, DrPH, RN, Nurse Epidemiologist and breast cancer survivor. CBCF is the first Caribbean breast cancer organization established in the Houston area. It is governed by an all volunteer Board of Directors, dedicated to the vision and mission of the organization, with Dr. Abraham serving as the Executive Director. Having gone through breast cancer treatment herself, Dr. Abraham believes that her journey can be an inspiration to many, and will enable her to make a significant contribution to the health and well-being of women. She has a strong conviction that at the end of the day, what really matters is that she is remembered as someone who made a difference.
CBCF is committed to helping women get well and stay well, and will not ignore the needs of any woman seeking assistance but will extend its support as appropriate. CBCF will implement creative strategies to raise funds for the organization and may include luncheons, walks and other activities. CBCF will form collaborative partnerships with other local organizations to address the issues that impact the underserved and uninsured population in the Houston area.
