Why Breast Cancer Research?
Investing in research produces real results.
From exploring ways to prevent the disease to learning why some families are more susceptible, we know more about breast cancer today than ever before. Research is improving care, producing better outcomes and transforming lives—every day.
Advancing Our Understanding
Ever since cancer emerged, science and medicine have been there uncovering clues along the way. Today, more rapidly than ever, research is revolutionizing our understanding and bringing us closer to a cure. Discover how far we've come.
Saving Lives, Improving Outcomes
Research isn't confined to a lab. These stories from doctors, patients, friends and loved ones affected by breast cancer inspire us to continue looking for answers.
"We haven’t figured out how or why breast cancer metastasizes yet. But research is the only thing that’s going to prevent my fate from happening to others.”
“Breast cancer is something that happened to me, but it doesn’t define me.”
"We want to solve problems that will ultimately improve public health. And we’ve moved the bar with BCRF’s help, but we have much more to do."
Finding Prevention and a Cure
Finding a cure isn't our only priority: our researchers are also focused on innovative ways to prevent breast cancer in future generations. Watch to learn more.
