As many know, October is breast cancer awareness month. Nilges Draher LLC has decided to take this month to support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). For every new like on the Nilges Draher Facebook page, we will donate $1 to BCRF. We chose BCRF because they are the top-rated breast cancer organization in the United States and 90% of their donations go to research and awareness programs
The BCRF was founded in 1993 by Evelyn Lauder and has raised more than half a billion dollars since its inception. Mrs. Lauder was diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer and chose to channel her experience into action. In 1989 she helped to establish a state-of-the-art breast and diagnostic center at New York's Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
Throughout 2018-2019, BCRF will award $63 million in grants to nearly 300 scientists from top universities and medical institutions around the world. Their key areas of research for 2018-2019 are Metastatic Breast Cancer, Precision-Prevention Research, Early Diagnosis and Prevention, Tumor Biology, Treatments, Inherited Susceptibility, Health Disparities, and Breast Cancer as a Growing Global Threat.
