WASHINGTON, D.C., Oct. 7, 2011 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Gingrich Foundation has recognized the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) as its October Charity of the Month.

The National Breast Cancer Foundation was founded in 1991 by Janelle Hail, a breast cancer survivor first diagnosed in 1980, at age 34. Janelle survived because her cancer was detected early. Today NBCF is dedicated to saving lives through early detection of breast cancer and increasing awareness through education.

Through its flagship initiative, the National Mammography Program, NBCF provides free mammograms to under served women in all 50 states. It also emphasizes the importance of regular mammography screening.

The National Breast Cancer Foundation's "Beyond the Shock" ( Program serves as an online resource that helps women learn more about breast cancer, as well as communicate with others who are affected by the disease.

"As a 31-year breast cancer survivor, I understand the importance of early detection," says NBCF Founder and CEO, Janelle Hail. "Early detection saved my life and that's why it is NBCF's mission to educate the importance of early detection and provide mammograms for those in need."

"One in every eight women is diagnosed with breast cancer during her lifetime," said Callista Gingrich, President of the Gingrich Foundation. "The National Breast Cancer Foundation encourages early detection and consequently helps save untold lives."

The Gingrich Foundation is a domestic non-profit corporation founded by Callista and Newt Gingrich to support charitable purposes.
