Explore our 2016 annual report

dr-sarah-hoskingDr Sarah Hosking, CEO of the National Breast Cancer Foundation says 2015-16 was a fantastic year highlighted by committed community fundraising and strong investment in breast cancer research. 

“In 2016 NBCF invested over 13 million dollars in life-changing research projects that will help to diagnose and treat breast cancer more effectively, allow people to live longer better lives and ultimately stop people dying from breast cancer. It takes a momentous community effort to fund world-class research and so many people have supported NBCF by raising money for breast cancer research – from pink ribbon breakfasts, to men getting pinked to support their loved ones, to head shaves, fun runs and treks. As a 100% community funded organisation, every dollar and every supporter’s effort counts, leaving a legacy for future generations and helping NBCF reach the goal of zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030.”
