The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is an independent notfor-profit organization whose mission is to achieve prevention and a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime by providing critical funding for innovative clinical and translational research at leading medical centers worldwide, and increasing public awareness about good breast health.
In 2010, the American Cancer Society estimates that about 207,090 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed among women in the United States, and that 40,230 women will die from the disease.
At this time there are about 2.5 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, exceeded only by lung cancer.
In men, 1,970 new cases are projected in 2010, with 390 deaths. Here you can choose from an amazing variety of products benefiting BCRF all year long. Products are available from all major department stores.
