NABCI is a campaign organized by a group of influencers, connectors and activists concerned about the unique issues that Asian women face related to breast cancer.

A number of Asian-American social media influencers have also agreed to become Asian Breast Cancer Advocates and formally take part in our initiative. Together, NABCI’s Advocates could potentially reach at least one million followers through their social media channels.

  • build a multi-language information and resource directory website at
  • produce printed in-language materials that can be distributed to breast cancer outreach centers throughout the U.S.
  • solicit and create a Youtube channel for Asian breast cancer survivor stories in multiple languages
  • create a medical exchange for U.S. and Asia-based breast cancer doctors to share best practices for detecting and treating breast cancer for Asian women
  • organize a national breast cancer awareness campaign targeting Asian women in the U.S. (especially immigrants)
  • become an advocate for public policy and research that relate to breast cancer and Asian women in the U.S. and abroad
