Big congrats BCRF researcher Dr. Robert Weinberg who received the he 2016 AACR Award for Lifetime Achievement in Cancer Research for his seminal contributions to cancer research, which included the discovery of the first oncogene, Ras and the tumor suppressor gene, retinoblastoma protein (Rb). Bravo!
The theme of this year’s AACR meeting "Delivering Cures Through Cancer Science," reinforces the inextricable link between research and advances in patient care.

BCRF researcher Dr. Patricia Ganz was a lead author on this new study that found commonly used chemotherapy drugs known as anthracyclines do not appear to cause cognitive decline following treatment in women with breast cancer.
An earlier study had suggested that a class of drugs called anthracyclines might increase the risk for neuropsychological issues and cognitive difficulties.

“I am determined to raise awareness and emphasize that breast cancer is nothing to be embarrassed about.” – BCRF fundraiser Nabeela Abdullah.

After her mother's diagnosis and successful treatment, Nabeela started a fundraiser for BCRF in her honor. She hopes by sharing her family's story she can reduce the stigma associated with the disease – a challenge seen in her South Asian community.
When Nabeela Abdullah’s mother was diagnosed with breast cancer, the news came at a tremendously challenging time. Her father had recently died of lung disease and her uncle lost his life to throat cancer. Even the word “cancer” was difficult to digest.

It's ‪#‎NationalVolunteerMonth‬! Big thanks to all of the volunteers who came out last week to help us prepare for our upcoming Hot Pink Party – Bloomberg Philanthropies, Cushman & Wakefield, AIG and of course our BCRF family and friends! Also thanks to Starrett-Lehigh for providing us a great space. Our events wouldn't be the same without all of the support we receive from volunteers.

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.
