What We Do

What We Do

There has never been a more exciting time for research into BRCA cancers: awareness is at an all-time high; testing is getting much less expensive; studies suggest more cancers than ever known may derive from BRCA or BRCA-like mutations; and new drugs are having dramatic results.

BRCA Foundation investigators are on vanguard of solving all these challenges.

The BRCA Foundation is currently funding research from Harvard Medicine BRCA1 Project, a collaborative endeavor partnering Harvard Medical School and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute; Stanford Cancer Institute; and the University of California, San Francisco, Center for BRCA Research.

How to help


If you are interested in volunteering with the BRCA Foundation, please contact Gail Fisher at (415)684-7441 or by email.


The BRCA Foundation welcomes your support toward our goal of eradicating BRCA cancers. Your donation will go toward research at any one of our investigator locations.

Not only is your cash donation 100% tax-deductible, but 100% of all cash donations go directly to cancer research. This is possible because of a generous donation made specifically to cover all administrative expenses.

How do I know my donation is going toward research and not administrative costs?
