Formerly known as Pride Foundation, the Breast Cancer Foundation has been proud to be at the forefront of breast cancer awareness, empowerment and support programs in Malaysia.
Breast Cancer Foundation was incorporated on 24 May 2006 under the Companies Act (1965) as a non-profit company limited by guarantee governed by a Board of Trustees. The incorporation is a tribute to the late Datin Paduka Seri Endon Mahmood's courage, resilience and strength in her fight against breast cancer.
Inspired by the London Breast Cancer Care fashion show, both Datin Paduka Seri Endon and her daughter-in-law, Dato' Azrene set-up a special purpose committee comprising of volunteers, under the auspices of Yayasan Budi Penyayang, to organize a "Walk with Pride" charity gala dinner on 31 July 2005 where breast cancer survivors took to the runway to make a powerful statement that there is life after breast cancer.
It was then, that Dato' Azrene realized that there was a need to create sustainable awareness about breast cancer in Malaysia. Hence, the incorporation of Breast Cancer Foundation.
