This is what we are up against

This year more than 3,200 Australians will lose their life to breast cancer. By stepping up to breast cancer and raising money for vital breast cancer research, you can help us change the stats.

The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) is Australia's leading national body funding game-changing breast cancer research.

This year, we are funding world-class research projects to help further understand risk factors, develop new ways to treat and monitor breast cancer, improve quality of life for breast cancer patients, improve treatment outcomes and ultimately - save more lives.

YOU'LL BE FUNDING THE FUTURE OF RESEARCH

Every year breast cancer researchers from around Australia apply for NBCF Funding - they Step Up to the challenge of helping us reach our goal of Zero Deaths from breast cancer. Just over one fifth of these grant applications are funded each year by NBCF. The more we raise the more ground-breaking breast cancer research we can fund.

Ongoing research is the only way we can improve our understanding of how breast cancer originates, grows and spreads, in order to develop tests, treatments and interventions to improve outcomes for people with the disease.
