Your Greatest Impact Yet

You may know Australian Breast Cancer Research (ABCR) is part of The Hospital Research Foundation (THRF) Group.

We’re thrilled to share in 2018, THRF Group was able to invest $24 million into lifesaving medical research and patient care in over 40 different areas of disease and illness! This is our biggest impact ever!

Your generous support of ABCR has delivered vital medical research and improved patient care to your loved ones and the community in an area that matters most to you.

Thanks to your support we were able to progress vital breast cancer research into:

  • Identifying a blood hormone that could lead to new treatments for breast cancer
  • Understanding why patients with estrogen receptor positive breast cancer develop therapy resistance
  • Developing a non-invasive gel using a compound derived from seaweed, combined with our own cancer fighting immune cells, that can be injected into inoperable breast tumours
  • Plus many more lifesaving research outcomes!

For every $1 you donated in 2018, $5 was provided in grants to lifesaving breast cancer research – yes it’s true! How? Our administration costs are covered by THRF’s commercial business activities (such as its lottery program) which also boosts our funds to research and patient care each year.

You can feel proud knowing your support is making an even bigger difference to the health and wellbeing of your loved ones.
