Breast Cancer and Community Advocate Involvement in Research

CBCRP aims to fund research that will make an immediate impact on breast cancer. We believe that the best way to achieve this goal is to utilize the talents and knowledge of all members of the breast cancer community. We are building up the resources for both applicants and for those interested in representing breast cancer patients or other communities in CBCRP-funded research. For more information about this new advocacy focus, go to our Advocacy Involvement page.

Stories from the 2010 Symposium

Whether you received the diagnosis, study the disease, provide healthcare or services to patients, or a friend/loved one was diagnosed with the disease, breast cancer impacts us all. At the 2010 symposium, "From Research to Action: Tools for Change," our Breast Cancer Research Council invited attendees to tell their stories of how breast cancer has impacted their lives. See what stories they told.
