Last week, BCRF partner Ann Taylor and Glamour celebrated Breast Cancer Awareness Month with a Conversation for a Breast Cancer Cure.

Every October, our 200+ grantees from all over the world come together to take part in a conversation about the current landscape of breast cancer research during our annual Symposium and Awards Luncheon.

There’s nothing more important than stopping breast cancer in its tracks. But what people don’t always understand is that, if detected early, breast cancer can often be controlled. It’s when the disease spreads, or metastasizes, that it turns lethal.

This year, we are investing $47 million in annual grants to 222 researchers at leading medical institutions across six continents, making the foundation one of the largest nonprofit funders of breast cancer research in the world.

In 2012, BCRF officially partnered with The Pink Agenda (TPA), a nonprofit that engages today’s generation to find a cure for tomorrow.

BCRF and Lifetime have partnered to kick off Breast Cancer Awareness month to call attention to the importance of research.

One by one, they boarded the plane. Many were cancer free, some were still in treatment and others, like pilot Deborah Johnson, were newly diagnosed.

This October, we’re thrilled to partner with the Huffington Post to advocate for the importance of research.

This October, join us and turn awareness into action!
