The act of cancer research and the experience of being diagnosed with cancer can often feel distinct from one another. In this video, we pair those who have experienced breast cancer with a NBCF-funded researcher, without explicitly saying who the other person is. In plain clothes, there is nothing to distinguish the two individuals – dissolving the boundary between research and its human impact.
What motivates our researchers to persevere? And how do those who have experienced breast cancer think of research?
At NBCF, our determined mission remains: zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030.
Since the National Breast Cancer Foundation was established in 1994, more than $115 million has been awarded to fund over 400 Australian-based research projects across every state and territory to improve the health and wellbeing of those affected by breast cancer.
The National Breast Cancer Foundation is the leading community-funded organisation in Australia raising money for research into the prevention and cure of breast cancer.
We are privileged to work with the public who both give and raise funds and the research community to whom we grant funds to change the health future.
