They focus mainly on research and research alone, and will not stop until the number of deaths from breast cancer reaches zero. Their goal is to accelerate the breakthroughs bringing them closer to a cure and to speed up the progress that will improve survivorship and quality of life for breast cancer patients.
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation’s research fuels advances in tumor biology, heredity and ethnicity, lifestyle and prevention, treatment, survivorship, and metastasis. Researchers discovered how cancer originates in the body and can now explore ways to target breast cancer cells to stop their growth.
