Marisa Renee Lee was preparing to graduate from Harvard when she learned her mother had stage IV breast cancer. To cope with her mom's diagnosis she formed The Pink Agenda​ – a nonprofit committed to raising money for breast cancer research and care, as well as awareness of the disease among young professionals.


“What we’ve all created together is strong,” Marisa says. With over $1 million raised so far for breast cancer research and care, its material impact is undeniable. Thank you Marisa and TPA for everything you do to #BeTheEnd. http://bit.ly/29JVW2S

“Breast cancer research is important to me for a very selfish reason. I want to live as long a life as possible.”

Rebecca Scheinkman was six days shy of her 33rd birthday when learned she had metastatic breast cancer. A survivor of childhood leukemia, she turned to her past to face her new "normal." Her experience has inspired others to donate to BCRF, raising $20,000 in the past two years. Thank you Rebecca for sharing your story and everything you do to #BeTheEnd!

Six years ago, Jessica was a 32-year-old woman who felt unstoppable. A mother to an 18-month-old son, a caring wife to her husband Ken, and a sister to three siblings – Jessica took the world in stride until one day she was floored when she arrived at the doctors to find out she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

This weekend Jessica and her sister Kathryn are taking on the Long Island Half Tough Mudder​ for BCRF. Before they’ve set foot on the course they’ve already raised nearly $2,000 to advance lifesaving research. Join us in wishing them the best of luck!

When Marisa Renee Lee lost her mother to metastatic breast cancer, she lost her best friend – but she also found a purpose, and it’s already saving lives.

She turned her feelings of fear, sadness and anger into action, starting with a single local fundraiser that has since grown into a major nationwide movement and a potent force for research: The Pink Agenda​. As a key partner of The Pink Agenda, BCRF recognizes the enormous strength we share when we band together. When we unite behind research, the result is better treatment and more favorable outcomes for people with breast cancer. Together we will #BeTheEnd of breast cancer.
Unable to heal her mother’s breast cancer, Marisa Renee Lee sought a way to make an impact on the disease that ultimately took her mother’s life.

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.
