"Tammy is pretty independent, stubborn and strong willed, so I said to myself, what can I do to help? And it hit me: raise some money so we can kick this nasty big C."

Today, Ray Brown starts his epic 3,000-mile bicycle race across the country for BCRF. With the help of a support crew, he will ride the journey solo to pay tribute to his wife and others impacted by breast cancer. Stay tuned for updates from the road, and join us in thanking Ray for his dedication to the cause!
When Ray Brown’s wife Tammy was diagnosed with breast cancer last October he immediately wanted to do something to advance breast cancer research.

"BCRF has been our partner all along, from the time this work was just a new idea. Now, it has tangible potential, thanks to BCRF's support." – BCRF researcher Dr. Sofia Merajver​

In a recently published BCRF-supported study, Dr. Merajver’s identified a promising new compound for targeting triple negative breast cancer (TNBC). While the discovery is in its nascent stages, researchers are hopeful it could lead to better treatments for this aggressive form of the disease.
An investigation from the University of Michigan could eventually lead to new therapies that take aim at the most aggressive type of breast cancer.

At ‪#‎ASCO16‬, a new report reveals that minority breast cancer survivors who are BCRA-positive seem to be less likely to receive surgery to prevent a cancer recurrence—despite the fact that a breast cancer survivor who carries a BRCA mutation faces up to a 50% lifetime risk of a second breast cancer and up to a 44% risk of ovarian cancer. It’s important to understand why these disparities exist so that all women are making informed decisions when it comes to preventive surgery and screening.
CHICAGO - For breast cancer survivors who carry mutations in BRCA genes, preventive surgery can substantially reduce the risk of future breast and ovarian cancer. However, it appears that black women are far less likely to receive these widely recommended procedures than white or Hispanic women, according to a populationbased study of breast cancer survivors in Florida.

Big congrats to BCRF researchers Drs. Kent Osborne and William Kaelin who were recognized for their contributions to clinical oncology at ASCO’s 2016 Annual Meeting!
At the 52nd Annual American Society for Clinical Oncology Conference in Chicago (June 3-7, 2016), two longtime BCRF investigators were honored for their achievements in the field.

"People ask how I can conduct research and service with 'dying people.' I tell them that, to the contrary, my work is with 'living people.' Indeed, most people diagnosed with breast cancer recover well, and others live as fully as possible with the knowledge that cancer will foreshorten their futures. This was Mary Anne, who was the beautiful and vital 'best woman' at my wedding only weeks before cancer took her life. Every article I publish, every talk I give is a tribute to Mary Anne." – BCRF researcher Dr. Annette Stanton

In a new BCRF-supported study, our researchers uncovered a potential new therapy for brain metastasis.
Metastasis, when cancer cells leave the breast and spread to other sites in the body, is the major cause of mortality from breast cancer. Common sites of breast cancer metastasis are bone, lung, liver and brain.

When Felicity Palma was diagnosed with breast cancer just shy of her 29th birthday, it was the start of a long road to recovery. Tonight she joins others impacted by the disease as they participate in the Game Show Network's body-painting competition TV show Skin Wars. Ahead of her television debut, we had a chance to speak with Felicity about her diagnosis, its challenges and why she is a strong believer in the power of research.

Tune in tonight at 9 p.m. ET to catch the special "Survive and Thrive" episode!
Felicity Palma was diagnosed with invasive estrogen-positive breast cancer on February 26, 2013, one week before her 29th birthday.

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.
