NBCF marks 20 years of impact

2014 marks an important milestone for the National Breast Cancer Foundation. This year we’re commemorating 20 years of funding vital research into the prevention and cure of breast cancer.

Since 1994, we’ve awarded more than $105 million to help fund over 370 Australian-based research projects to improve the health and wellbeing of those affected by breast cancer.

We believe research is the most effective way for us to reach our aspirational goal of zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030. In 1994, 30 per cent of women diagnosed with breast cancer passed away from the disease.

In 20 years, this percentage has halved. We know the work is far from over and we are now committed, and looking forward, to funding vital and innovative cancer research for the future.

We’ve got a big year (and future) ahead of us. Thank you for helping us move one step closer to achieving our aspirational goal of zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030.
