In a study headed by BCRF investigator Katherine Nathanson from the University of Pennsylvania​ and colleagues from other leading institutions, researchers found that using an expanded gene panel in high-risk families did not add any clinical benefit beyond the BRCA1/2 mutation screening.
The discovery of the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes more than 20 years ago dramatically changed risk assessment, prevention and treatment in families with a high prevalence of breast and/or ovarian cancers.

Tennis has always played an outsized role in Phyllis Dubinsky’s life – but perhaps never bigger than the part it played in helping her recovery from breast cancer. Here the 25-year breast cancer survivor shares how tennis and a pair of shoes helped her reclaim her passion post-treatment.

Our very own Zoë Mintz penned this piece sharing how her mom's breast cancer diagnosis empowered her to take action against the devastating disease – eventually bringing her to BCRF as our manager of digital communications.

Here she shares her story on how her family's experience made her a strong believer in the power of breast cancer research.

“You cannot underestimate the power of a thank you, and you can’t say thank you enough.” – BCRF's Katherine Minster

Katherine was fresh out of college when she joined BCRF eight years ago. Today she serves as the Foundation's Director of Stewardship where she cultivates and builds donor partnerships. This is particularly true in Boston where she oversees fundraising and leadership for our Boston Hot Pink Party, one of our signature spring galas that takes place tomorrow. Ahead of the big day, Katherine shares her story on how a calling became her life's passion.

A new study supported in part by BCRF demonstrated that new drugs called CDK4/6 inhibitors can overcome drug resistance in HER2-positive breast cancer. The finding is significant because it could help those with metastatic and early stages of this particular subtype – to both treat or prevent reoccurrence.

Join us in cheering on Babacar as he competes in his first Tough Mudder​ of the season this weekend for BCRF! He aims to run in 7 of these challenging races in honor of his grandmother and two great-aunts who were diagnosed with breast cancer. Good luck and thank you Babacar!
Babacar Diop's grandmother and two great-aunts were diagnosed with breast cancer well before he was born. However he remembers hearing chilling stories about how these three strong matriarchs bonded over their shared diagnoses.

On #NationalTeacherAppreciationDay, we're proud to share Claire's story. An elementary school teacher in Connecticut, she was diagnosed with breast cancer nearly two years ago. She was 29 years old. Today she is in remission and a staunch supporter of research. Thank you Claire and all teachers for everything you do!
Claire Di Cenzo remembers the unfortunate milestone vividly. It was June 2, 2014 at 10:30 p.m. That’s when her doctor called to inform her the lump she found on her breast was malignant. She was 29 years old.

Our mission is to prevent and cure breast cancer by advancing the world's most promising research. 


We believe research—and research alone—has the power to bring an end to cancer. We know what needs to be done, and we have more than 200 researchers urgently working on solutions to one of the world’s greatest problems.


Until the number of deaths from breast cancer is zero, we will not stop. Join us, and help fuel the research of tomorrow needed to save lives today. Everyone can be part of the solution. We are all part of the cure.


The end of cancer begins with you.
