Finding Cures

We've been involved in nearly every major breakthrough in the fight against cancer. We fund more research than any other nonprofit, next to the federal government. And we have a track record of funding the best science. Forty-six of our funded researchers went on to win the Nobel Prize.

Lifesaving treatments such as Herceptin and Tamoxifen, cancer causing genes and less radical surgery were all made possible in part to our research funding. We invest more in breast cancer research than any other cancer type, and nearly all of the research we fund has potential against breast cancer.
