The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) is Australia's leading national body funding game-changing breast cancer research with money raised entirely by the Australian public. We receive no government funding. What we do, would not be possible without the support and generosity of people and organisations like YOU. Our mission is simple: stop deaths from breast cancer. How? By identifying, funding and championing world-class research -research that will help us detect tumors earlier, improve treatment outcomes, and ultimately -save lives.
Since 1994, NBCF has awarded has invested around $200M into nearly 600 world-class research projects across the country. The five-year survival rates for breast cancer has increased from 76% to 92%. We've seen remarkable results, but the job's not done.
More than ever, NBCF is focusing keenly on how we can do more with less in order to achieve great outcomes that will impact the longevity and quality of life for patients with breast cancer. For us, this means identifying new and effective models of funding and ensuring that we don't stand alone but work collaboratively and creatively to achieve our mission of Zero Deaths from breast cancer.
