Ways to Donate to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation®
As you consider becoming involved with The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, the following testimonials from BCRF-funded researchers highlight the urgency of its mission:
"[BCRF's] awards support leaders in translational science and assume that they will be able to best dispense the funds. This is invaluable. Most grants require a year's lead time before ideas can be funded. The BCRF funds allow you to plan ideas a few months ahead, and are flexible in support. The awards also come with the promise of continuity to explore new ideas as they arise. I also really appreciate the annual awards ceremony and the expression of thanks to the scientists. We don't often get that and it really is rewarding and inspiring to see that people appreciate us, even if we don't come up with all of the answers. It is an expression of thanks for the efforts we put forward to try to find answers."

"The impact [of BCRF funding] has been enormous. We have undertaken a project that is 'capital-intensive' and that would not have received federal funding because of its perceived risky nature. This project then progressed to the point where it was no longer viewed as risky, and the federal government funds a portion of it (although not near its true costs.) The clinical value of our goals, which we expect to complete within the year, should be enormous."
