Breast cancer is one of the leading causes of death among women, yet its cure has remained unresolved. That may be about to change. Cure Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization created to raise money for breast cancer research under the direction of noted oncologist, Dr. Larry Norton, at the world-renowned Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and other national and international research facilities. Since its inception in December 2007, CBCF has raised over $7 million for breast cancer research.
CBCF differs from other philanthropic organizations because instead of raising money for general breast cancer research, funds raised by the CBCF are devoted entirely to Dr. Larry Norton’s and his colleagues’ research on the growth and spreading of breast cancer cells known as the Self-Seeding Theory. This research focuses on improving the understanding of not only breast cancer, but also other cancers.
Donations to Cure Breast Cancer Foundation fund innovative research that could dramatically change the treatment for breast cancer in the future. Mounting evidence from this pioneering research is translating a theory into life-saving treatments.
