Detailed Information:
To achieve its mission, the National Breast Cancer Coalition focuses on three main goals:

* Research:
* Increasing appropriations for high quality, peer-reviewed research and working within the scientific community to focus research on prevention and finding a cure. Access:
* Increasing access for all women to high quality treatment and care, and to breast cancer clinical trials. Influence:
Increasing the influence of women living with breast cancer and other breast cancer activists in the decision making that impacts all issues surrounding breast cancer.

Through our network of more than 600 organizations and 70,000 individuals across the country, the National Breast Cancer Coalition has brought about fundamental change, increasing federal appropriations for breast cancer research sixfold, precipitating an unprecedented breast cancer research program administered by the Department of the Army, bringing about and overseeing the National Action Plan on Breast Cancer (a public/private partnership), and bringing breast cancer to the forefront of the nation's agenda.
