Dear TBBCF Supporters,

For more than a decade, the TBBCF has raised funds to support cutting-edge research into the causes and potential cures for breast cancer. Too many of us have experienced sorrow and loss caused by this disease that continues to plague our friends and loved ones.

Thanks to hundreds of volunteers, sponsors and walkers, the Foundation has been able to raise more than $3.4 million, every penny of which has been used to fund research. Due to these efforts, outstanding young scientists in some of the world’s leading research institutions have been able to explore exciting new ideas for attacking this disease.   More

Our Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC)

“We salute the SAC. Their efforts have been Herculean, mastered without complaint at the year-end deadlines.”

The idea of funding breast cancer research requires technical expertise to analyze and develop funding mechanisms, a fluency in the sciences, and especially, a vision of the future: a gaze toward the novel therapies and people who might unravel the mysteries of breast cancer promoting therapies to combat the disease.
The founding Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) volunteered to lead this mission while pursuing their own demanding careers as scientists, business leaders, and scientific researchers. In the past ten years the SAC has awarded 3.4M in research dollars to fund new efforts to eradicate breast cancer.  More
