Review for National Breast Cancer Coalition Fund, Washington, DC, USA
The National Breast Cancer Coalition is a nationwide coaltion of local groups involved with breast cancer. The NBCC provides these groups with a means of educating their members so that they may serve as more effective breast cancer advocates at a local level. The NBCC also offers a strong, unified voice in advocating for breast cancer support at the national level.
NBCC is committed to getting the RIGHT work done in the field of breast cancer.
This organization isn't just about "breast cancer awareness" or incremental gains in treatment. It is about ERADICATING the disease of breast cancer. In fact, NBCC recently set itself this very goal, with a deadline of January, 2020.
In order to achieve the "impossible" goal of eliminating breast cancer, the NBCC supports funding research that seeks anwers in genetics, virology, immunology, and environmental science that can prevent and cure breast cancer, not merely extend survival by a few months.
The NBCC seeks to educate everyone in the breast cancer community - patients, caregivers, friends/relatives, researchers, and policy makers - about the facts about breast cancer, relying on evidence rather than myth.
