This year’s annual Symposium & Awards Luncheon celebrated the dedication of $58.6 million to breast cancer research. Totaling $47 million, the 2014-2015 annual grants, awarded to more than 220 physicians and scientists on six continents, continue to fuel BCRF’s mission of advancing the world’s most innovative research. In addition, $11.6 million has been committed to the international Founder’s Fund focused on metastasis.

This year’s symposium, titled “Breast Cancer: Prevention is the Best Cure,” included a panel featuring renowned BCRF researchers Drs. Graham Colditz, Andrew Dannenberg, Susan Domchek, and Peter Greenwald.

The luncheon, which raised $2.2 million, was hosted by Good Morning America anchor, breast cancer survivor and BCRF ambassador, Amy Robach. ABC News broadcast legend Barbara Walters received the Sandra Taub Humanitarian Award for her contributions to women’s health. The Jill Rose Award for outstanding research excellence was presented to Dr. Greenwald in recognition of his lifelong contributions to research on cancer prevention.
