The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation is the largest charitable funder of breast cancer research in Canada. Since 1986, CBCF has invested over $300 million to fund more than 690 relevant and innovative research projects that have led to progress in breast cancer prevention, earlier detection, diagnosis, treatment and care.

Since the mid 1980’s, mortality rates for breast cancer have decreased by 44% and survival rates have climbed to 88% in large part due to research advancements.
