About The Noreen Fraser Foundation
The Noreen Fraser Foundation (NFF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for groundbreaking women’s cancer research and raising awareness of the importance of early detection for the prevention of women’s cancers.
Why NFF? Because we have a stake in the matter! Noreen Fraser, NFF’s Founder and CEO, was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2001 and has been living with Stage IV metastatic breast cancer since 2003. Noreen’s dream is that no other woman will have to endure the fight she has fought. Noreen is here today because research has led to treatments that have kept her cancer at bay— treatments that were unavailable when she was first diagnosed. Noreen understands the urgency, so has made cancer her business by raising millions of dollars for cancer research and by speaking prolifically on the topic of early prevention and targeted treatments. NFF’s dedicated board of directors, stellar medical advisory team and ardent supporters share Noreen’s passion for finding targeted treatments for women’s cancers above all else. NFF supports research for all women’s reproductive cancers (breast, ovarian, cervical and uterine/endometrial) because there is a strong hormonal and biological link between the women’s cancers including hereditary cancer syndromes. Therefore, research in one type of women’s cancer oftentimes simultaneously progresses research in the other types of women’s cancers. A multi-disciplinary approach and collaboration among researchers in the various fields of women’s cancers is absolutely necessary to accelerate the development of reasonable treatment options and potential cures. The research we fund is focused on making a real impact on women’s lives now. We feel that while a lot of money has been raised in the name of cancer, it has been divided amongst thousands of researchers and thousands of ideas diluting its impact. We work directly with our internationally renowned medical advisors, some of the world’s brightest physicians and scientists, to select research to fund that will make an impact on the lives of women quickly and to hone our messaging to make the greatest impact on the women who need our help now. - See more at: http://www.noreenfraserfoundation.org/about/why-nff/#sthash.vU59x6Gg.dpuf
