FUNDING RESEARCH MEANS FUNDING HOPE
"The idea of not dying is so abnormal, it feels almost impossible. But then you start reading about all the research they're doing, all the stuff they're doing and you see hope. And so I think as long as there's hope, then I've got a chance."
- Sara, diagnosed 2019

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 91% and is still rising. But breast cancer is still the most diagnosed cancer 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
"More than half the treatments I'm using today weren't around when I was in medical school. Transformation is happening at a rapid pace. But while we've had a lot of success, there's a lot more to be done."
- Professor Elgene Lim, NBCF-funded reseacher
With your support NBCF funded Australian researchers are uncovering scientific breakthroughs that can change the future for those impacted by breast cancer.
