Mission Statement

Save lives by meeting the most critical needs in our communities and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer.

Impact and Programs

Accomplishments More early breast cancer detection (nearly 75 percent of women over 40 years old now receive regular mammograms, the single most effective tool for detecting breast cancer early [in 1982, less than 30 percent received a clinical exam]), more hope (the five-year survival rate for breast cancer, when caught early before it spreads beyond the breast, is now 98 percent [compared to 74 percent in 1982]), more research (the federal government now devotes more than $900 million each year to breast cancer research, treatment and prevention [compared to $30 million in 1982]), more survivors (currently, there are more than 3.5 million breast cancers survivors, the largest group of cancer survivors, in the U.S., and are a living testament to the power of society and science to save lives).
Current Goals More early breast cancer detection, more hope, more breast cancer research funded, more breast cancer survivors.
