Our Mission / Objective

The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) is Australia’s leading national body funding game-changing breast cancer research with money raised entirely by the Australian public.

We receive no government funding. What we do, would not be possible without the support and generosity of people and organisations like YOU.

Our mission is simple: stop deaths from breast cancer. How? By identifying, funding and championing world-class research -research that will help us detect tumours earlier, improve treatment outcomes, and ultimately –save lives.

No family should experience the heartache of losing a loved one to breast cancer

Since NBCF’s inception in 1994, the five-year survival rates for breast cancer has increased from 76% to 91%. It’s proof our strategy is working.

NBCF’s research strategy of funding Australia’s best breast cancer research will build on this progress – further improving the outcomes and quality of life for those affected by breast cancer.

To date more than $183 million has been invested in Australian breast cancer research projects. Research is the only way we can understand more about the cause and development of breast cancer – so that we can more effectively prevent, diagnose and treat it. Survival rates have improved, but the job’s not done.

More than ever, NBCF is focusing keenly on how we can do more with less in order to achieve great outcomes that will impact the longevity and quality of life for patients with breast cancer.

For us, this means identifying new and effective models of funding and ensuring that we don’t stand alone but work collaboratively and creatively to achieve our mission of Zero Deaths by breast cancer by 2030.

 

Projects in Progress

NBCF is committed to funding innovative and game-changing breast cancer research across the spectrum.

This year is no exception.

Our Research Projects

 

Our 20 new projects aim to improve early detection, treatments and quality of life for breast cancer patients.

They also tackle promising new areas of research including personalised immunotherapies for hard-to-treat breast cancers; targeted treatment delivery systems; and predictive tests for metastatic breast cancer.

All work towards our determined goal of zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030.
