The iScrap App Team would like to take the time this October to bring our community of scrappers and scrap yards together for a good cause. The month of October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and what better way to help support it than to have a fundraising page from the scrap metal community. We would like to invite all of our community to participate in donating anything they feel necessary to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and help us raise enough to reach our goal of $500 this month. The iScrap App community is a great family and everyone knows someone affected by breast cancer. A mother. A sister. A daughter. A wife. And many others.
So help us this October to raise $500 for breast cancer research and do a good cause by joining the fight to SCRAP CANCER!
About Breast Cancer Research Foundation:
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is a nonprofit organization committed to achieving prevention and a cure for breast cancer. We provide critical funding for cancer research worldwide to fuel advances in tumor biology, genetics, prevention, treatment, metastasis and survivorship.
Since our founding in 1993 by Evelyn H. Lauder, BCRF has raised more than half a billion dollars for lifesaving research. Through a unique and streamlined grants program, we seek out the brightest minds in science and medicine and give them the necessary resources to pursue their best ideas. As a result, researchers are able to make discoveries and design new approaches to address all aspects of breast cancer—and do so in record time.
“Our goal is to accelerate the breakthroughs bringing us closer to a cure to speed up the progress that will improve survivorship and quality of life for breast cancer patients today.” – Myra J. Biblowit, President & CEO
In 2016-2017, BCRF will award $57 million in annual grants to more than 250 scientists from top universities and medical institutions around the globe. In addition, BCRF has established the Evelyn H. Lauder Founder’s Fund, a multi-year international program dedicated to metastasis that is the first large-scale global effort to unravel the biology of metastasis, with more than $30 million earmarked to date. It is the largest privately funded project exclusively focused on metastasis in the world. But we still have more to do.
The thousands of women and men suffering from breast cancer today depend on us. No institution can conquer this disease alone. Together, we can.
