About Us



FUCAM A.C. is the first and only private non-profit institution in Mexico and Latin America that offers comprehensive treatment and specialized follow-up of breast cancer, through its high specialty hospital unit in Mexico City and its screening centers in the states of Oaxaca, Morelos and a screening clinic in Chiapas.

It also has 3 mobile units and a wagon in El Tren de la Salud, to provide early diagnosis coverage in different regions of the country, through timely detection mastography campaigns.

It has developed a comprehensive strategy that starts with education and promotion programs on timely detection, accurate diagnosis and medical-surgical treatment of breast cancer, up to breast reconstruction including psychological/tanatological support.

As well as promoting the training of specialists in breast radiology, medical and surgical treatment, clinical research and comprehensive rehabilitation.

From 2005 to date, more than 11,000 women with complex breast cancer diagnoses have been treated. In order to provide access to a timely diagnosis of breast cancer, we established timely detection programs, bringing mastography studies to the most vulnerable communities, since 2005 we implemented this program for the first time in Mexico. In FUCAM, screening programs were established through Mobile Units and the Health Train, with mastography equipment and specialized personnel.

Mission

To provide timely diagnosis, treatment and specialized follow-up of breast cancer, with emphasis on the most disadvantaged and marginalized socioeconomic groups in Mexico; to promote education and awareness of the importance of timely detection of breast cancer and to encourage the training of specialists in breast radiology, treatment, research and rehabilitation.

Vision

To consolidate itself as the most important Foundation in Mexico that collaborates to reduce the morbidity rates due to Breast Cancer, attending the greatest number of women in the Mexican Republic, strengthening its leadership in research and academic training of specialized medical personnel.
