Raising critical funds for breast cancer patients at the UNC Breast Center

This October, during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, you can help us continue providing excellent care to women throughout the state of North Carolina by participating in our virtual fundraiser, Power of Pink!Power of Pink logo Funds raised through this campaign will help patients experiencing breast cancer while also supporting our clinical needs to serve them.

UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center is home to one of the nation’s premier breast cancer programs. This exceptional program exemplifies the interdisciplinary team approach, not only in the high quality, compassionate care that women receive at the UNC Breast Center, but also in the program’s broad-based, integrated and innovative research that will reduce the burden of breast cancer.

Today, an estimated 3 million women are living with breast cancer, more than ever before in our history. Since the mid-1970s, we have made spectacular progress in breast cancer early screening, treatment and prevention. Because we have used research to develop, test and use new approaches, almost 90% of all women live at least five years following a breast cancer diagnosis
