No matter the role or project, your generosity helps raise money for the research that could change the face of breast cancer forever. Events, for example, play a huge role in our fundraising — and at least 50% of all proceeds are earmarked for breast cancer research grants.
Thanks to these funds, we can provide seed money for groundbreaking research like the tamoxifen studies. Today, partly as a result of those tamoxifen studies, almost two-thirds of women diagnosed with breast cancer this decade are predicted to survive their disease for 20 years or more.
As we move forward, we want to focus on our mission of providing grants to further research, prevention, and treatment by supporting breast cancer research and treatment institutes — and we’d love for you to join us.
Support research institutions like Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
“As Dana-Farber continues to expand its efforts in cancer research, funding remains a major challenge because of ongoing reductions in the NIH budget. Without additional funding from organizations such as Bakes for Breast Cancer, we could lose the next generation of breast cancer researchers to other fields of study. ”
-Dr. Craig A. Bunnell, Chief Medical Officer, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
