Breast Cancer Alliance has established itself as the major private foundation committed to early-stage research. That means it can identify important new scientists, or those tenured in their careers, and provide the crucial bridge funding that gets them from the conceptual stage to eligibility for federal support.
$15 million awarded to research in areas from metastasis to triple negative breast cancer to immunotherapy and more...
Breast Cancer Alliance understands that survival rates and quality of life are dramatically improved when patients are in the care of specially trained breast surgeons. As a result, we are committed to funding breast surgery fellowships annually at select Society of Surgical Oncology accredited institutions.
BCA has funded 50 breast surgical fellowships since 2006, helping to attract new, highly skilled doctors to the field.
Breast cancer survival rates are near 90% due to advances in early detection and improved education. We dedicate grant funding each year towards breast health awareness and to eliminating barriers of access to care for underserved women. This includes support for patients most directly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Over 200 Education & Outreach Grants have been awarded to health organizations for screening, treatment and support.
The success of Breast Cancer Alliance is very much the result of the relationships we foster through our volunteer opportunities, and the communities we build through participation in our programs and events. Learn how you can become a part of it all.
