Here at BCRF, we work closely with The Pink Agenda, a group of young professionals determined to fund research and improve the odds of those diagnosed with breast cancer.

BCRF congratulates Dr. Mary-Claire King on her Lasker-Koshland Special Achievement Award in Medical Science.

On August 16, our annual Hamptons Paddle & Party for Pink raised $1.5 million for breast cancer research, a new record for the summer fundraiser.

While breast cancers are known to run in families, they are rarely a direct result of mutated genes inherited from a parent. In fact, inherited, or hereditary, cases account for only 5 - 10 percent of all breast cancers.

For some, turning 50 is cause for a midlife crisis. For veteran sailor Jon Litt and his good friend and sailing partner Paul Dunay, the milestone became the opportunity of a lifetime.


Research is making a difference. Today, there are almost 3 million breast cancer survivors in the U.S. alone. We're grateful for the progress we've made, but we won't stop until no woman or man dies from breast cancer ever again.

Since our founding by Evelyn Lauder in 1993, we have funded millions of research hours that's led to better treatment and brighter outcomes. Learn about our impact.

Every two minutes, a woman in the United States is diagnosed with breast cancer. Research is helping us better understand how to best treat and prevent the disease. Join us.

When Ashley Bell's birth mother was diagnosed with breast cancer, Ashley knew she wanted to get involved with raising money for research. A sailing enthusiast, she combined her love for sailing and her drive to support research.
