The Ann Taylor and LOFT Fund in Support of Breast Cancer Prevention

This year, long-time BCRF partner, Ann Taylor Inc., will focus their generous support on research efforts directed toward breast cancer prevention. A world free from breast cancer includes preventing the disease from occurring in the first place. In 2021, the World Health Organization announced that breast cancer is now the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the world, surpassing lung cancer for the first time and impacting more than 2.3 million people globally. Soaring incidence rates can only be tamed through prevention. For this reason, Ann Taylor and LOFT are committed to funding research that stops this disease from ever taking root.

Three pillars of prevention research will greatly benefit from Ann Taylor, Inc.’s support: understanding the factors affecting breast cancer risk; improving early detection screening practices; and developing intervention strategies to reduce risk. BCRF and Ann Taylor, Inc. are proud to support researchers that are addressing all aspects of breast cancer prevention
