Breast cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia. 1 in 7 women will be diagnosed in their lifetime, and 9 Australians lose their life every day.
The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) is Australia’s leading national body funding game-changing breast cancer research to create a better tomorrow for all those impacted.
Our vision is simple: Zero Deaths from breast cancer. How? By identifying, funding and championing world-class research - that helps us detect tumours earlier, improve treatment outcomes, and ultimately save lives.
Since 1994, when NBCF was first established, we have invested nearly $200M into almost 600 research projects. In that time, the death rates from breast cancer in Australia have reduced by 43% thanks in large part to research in prevention, early detection and new and improved breast cancer treatments.
