BREAST CANCER STATS

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia.

53 Australians are diagnosed each and every day.

Since the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) started funding in 1994, the five-year survival rates have improved from 76% to 91%.

We’ve come a long way. But there’s still progress to be made.

That’s why we’re committed to funding a broad spectrum of research to help understand risk factors, develop new ways to detect and treat breast cancer, improve quality of life for breast cancer patients, improve treatment outcomes and ultimately – save lives.

Our mission: zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030.
