What Can You Do

Breast Cancer is taking two of our nation’s women from us every day, whilst one woman is diagnosed with the disease every three hours. 83% of women diagnosed are now surviving more than 5 years, so while we can see an end in sight, we are not there yet.

This next, final stage is critical. More than ever, we need people to commit to assisting our efforts to raise money for research.

“Research continues to be pivotal in developing our understanding and preventing, managing and curing breast cancer”

— PROFESSOR ANDREW SHELLING

 
 

In 2013, Breast Cancer Cure formed part of the Breast Cancer Research Partnership with The Health Research Council of New Zealand (HRC) and the Breast Cancer Foundation NZ. The partnership has since jointly funded $2.4 million worth of new research projects.

1% per year

We are slowing the death rate down by 1% per year. Death rates have dropped by 19% in NZ. since 2000, due to improvements in areas in treatment.

 

Our Mission

Research continues to be pivotal in developing our understanding and preventing, managing and curing cancer. It is at the heart of progress made to date, and essential we continue to drive improvements, to stop people dying from the disease.

We can’t stop everyone from getting breast cancer, but we hope to prevent as many as possible. For the cases we can’t prevent, we believe we can turn breast cancer into a chronic disease much like HIV patients do today.
