All For One Cause

United States Chapter

The E.R.I.C. US Chapter is dedicated to promoting breast health awareness and education across the United States. Our mission is to reach marginalized communities, provide essential training on self-breast exams, and advocate for early detection to improve breast cancer outcomes. Through local events and fundraising efforts, we support our international chapters and work to close the gap in breast cancer education.

Welcome To E.R.I.C. Cancer
Initiative United States

The E.R.I.C. US Chapter plays a crucial role in advancing breast health education nationwide. Founded in response to personal experiences with cancer, our chapter has grown to become a beacon of hope and knowledge. We focus on educating diverse communities about the importance of early detection and breast health maintenance. Our programs are designed to empower individuals with the tools and information they need to take control of their breast health.

In the past decade, E.R.I.C. has reached over 200,000 school-aged children through our innovative school-based model, integrating physical activity with vital health messages. As we continue to grow, our efforts have expanded beyond schools to community centers, local events, and online platforms, ensuring our message reaches those who need it most.

One of our key initiatives is to support marginalized communities within the US, where access to breast health education and resources is often limited. By partnering with local organizations, healthcare providers, and volunteers, we are making strides in closing the education gap and providing much-needed support to those at risk.

Through our dedicated team of volunteers and staff, we organize events to raise funds for our international chapters, fostering a global network of support and solidarity. Our work in the US not only benefits local communities but also contributes to our worldwide mission of reducing breast cancer mortality through early detection and education.

Cancer Burden in The United States

Breast cancer remains a significant public health issue in the United States, particularly in low-income communities where access to healthcare and breast health education is limited. These communities often face higher mortality rates due to late-stage diagnoses and lack of awareness about breast cancer risk factors and early detection methods. Our goal is to address these disparities by providing targeted education and resources, ensuring that every woman, regardless of her socioeconomic status, has the knowledge and tools to detect breast cancer early.

Our Mission

To provide comprehensive breast health education and resources globally, empowering individuals in marginalized communities to take proactive steps in managing their breast health. We partner with community organizations and state/municipal agencies to conduct programming in targeted communities, educating them on cancer risk factors, prevention strategies, and evidence-based screening modalities.

E.R.I.C. Fight Pink Initiative

E.R.I.C. Fight Pink is an athletics initiative aiming to honor breast cancer survivors and educate the public on early detection. Before Fight Pink games, survivors will be recognized on the field, receiving jerseys, E.R.I.C. Promise Bracelets, and flowers. Athletes will wear pink jerseys and E.R.I.C. warm-up shirts, while fans are offered an opportunity to purchase Pink Packs and replica jerseys, with proceeds supporting breast cancer health while fighting cancer worldwide. The initiative encourages public participation, allowing anyone to host their own Fight Pink event by purchasing Pink Packs from the E.R.I.C. website.
