Why Support BCRF?

The Breast Cancer Research Foundation advances the world’s most promising research to eradicate breast cancer in our lifetime. By spending 91 cents of every dollar on research and public awareness, BCRF remains one of the nation’s most fiscally responsible charities. We currently support more than 200 researchers around the globe who are dedicated to six critical areas of focus—tumor biology, heredity & ethnicity, treatment, survivorship and metastasis—ensuring we learn more about breast cancer at every stage.

Your support funds so many of the world’s brightest minds and brings hope to the thousands of patients, survivors and families affected by the disease. We couldn’t do it without you, and we won’t stop until we achieve prevention and a cure for breast cancer.

The Pinkathon San Francisco's organizers are friends and fellow Breast Cancer Survivors Ellen Holbrook and Ultra Running Coach "Mama Lisa" Felder.  Ellen is a celebrating 17 years as a Breast Cancer Survivor, while Lisa was diagnosed more recently and is still undergoing treatment. Both Ellen and Lisa were thin, healthy, experienced long-distance runners at the time of their diagnosis, with NO FAMILY HISTORY of Breast Cancer.  In fact, 85% of new breast cancer patients have NO FAMILY HISTORY of breast cancer.   Please help us raise money to support continued research into the causes of Breast Cancer and to help find a cure!
