Where do the funds I raise go?

This year, Real Men Wear Pink aims to raise $1.5 million to fund research into the prevention of breast cancer. NBCF research has helped develop better therapies, greater understanding of possible ways to stop the spread of breast cancer to other areas, and improved quality of life for patients and their families. Since we were established in 1994, we have awarded more than $140 million to around 470 Australian-based research projects to improve the health and well-being of the 60,000 Australians — mothers, sisters, wives, daughters, friends — living with breast cancer, to reduce the risk of our children and grandchildren dying from the disease, and to contribute to our goal of zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030.
