National Breast Cancer Coalition (NBCC)
Breast Cancer Deadline 2020®
Since 1991, the National Breast Cancer Coalition's trained advocates have lobbied at the national, state and local levels for public policies that impact breast cancer research, diagnosis and treatment.
On September 20, 2010, The National Breast Cancer Coalition launched the Breast Cancer Deadline 2020®—a call to action for policymakers, researchers, breast cancer advocates and other stakeholders to end the disease by 2020. Breast Cancer Deadline 2020 says it’s time for accountability.
As a network of hundreds of groups and tens of thousands of individuals, NBCC speaks for women. We’re not afraid to rock the boat. We believe scientists must get the funding they need for meaningful breast cancer research. We believe everyone must have access to quality care. We believe trained, educated advocates must have a voice everywhere breast cancer decisions are made. And we believe with Breast Cancer Deadline 2020® we can end breast cancer by January 1, 2020.
