Breast cancer is currently the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia. Its incidence is at an all-time high, with eight women dying every single day from the disease. Research is the only way to learn more about how breast cancer grows & spreads – so that we can develop better diagnostic tools, treatments – and ultimately, save lives.  

The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) has one determined goal: zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030. It’s a goal that NBCF believes is achievable – with the help & support of people like you.  

Thanks to breast cancer research, 5 year survival rates for breast cancer have improved from 76% to 90% in the last 20 years. But when breast cancer spreads to other parts of the body, those rates become alarmingly low – just 40%.  Sufferer or carer, it’s a disease too many of us have to tolerate. And there is still so much work to be done.

We aim to raise $70,000 through the Outback Trek for Research to fund life-changing breast cancer research.

Simply set up your online fundraising page today by clicking 'Start Fundraising'. Remember to add a profile picture and a tell your supporters why breast cancer research is so important to you.

Thank you so much for helping us towards our goal of zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030.
