FUNDING RESEARCH MEANS FUNDING HOPE
"I'm sitting here because of people like you. Because early detection and improved treatments and research has meant that I've come through that cancer experience and I will see my daughter finish high school. So, thank you very much."
- Kirsty, diagnosed 2020

RESEARCH IS THE BEST WAY TO STOP DEATHS FROM BREAST CANCER
Since NBCF's inception in 1991 the 5-year survival rate from breast cancer has increased from 76% to 92% and is still rising. But breast cancer is still the most commonly diagnosed cancer amongst women in Australia. An ageing population, health and lifestyle factors and better detection have all contributed to an increase in breast cancer diagnoses. We've made progress but the game is not over yet.

YOU'LL BE FUNDING THE FUTURE OF SCIENCE
"I truely believe I'm still here because I've benefited from what their research has uncovered. And especially with treating triple negative breast cancer, it's renownedly difficult to treat and they have made huge advances in the last five years."
- Karley, diagnosed 2020
