About Us:
Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia, with eight women dying from the disease every day.

We are Australia’s leading national body funding game-changing breast cancer research with money raised entirely by the Australian public.

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.

We receive no government funding, so we can invest quickly in what works. What we do, would not be possible without the support and generosity of people like you.

Since we started in 1994, we’ve invested over $162 million in over 514 breast cancer research projects across the country. We’ve seen remarkable results, but the job’s not done.

With the community in our corner, we’re working towards one determined goal: zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030.
