A message from Ouidad:
On behalf of my company, I invite you to help fund the fight to find a cure for breast cancer by supporting The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® through OUIDAD – Curls For A Cure®. We'll continue to match your donations dollar for dollar towards our goal to donate one million dollars.
Even small donations can do big things; therefore we've created two convenient ways to participate. You can make an outright contribution from one of the "Donation" links on this page, or you can add a donation to your shopping basket during check-out when you're making a purchase.
Either way, I firmly believe that with your help we can beat breast cancer by helping fund the research that creates new treatments and ultimately finds a cure for this devastating disease.
Why the Breast Cancer Research Foundation?
The answer is simple. Trust.
We know that a dollar given to the BCRF will go farther in the fight for a cure than it would at any other organization. You can view details about our partnership with The BCRF here.
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is an independent, not-for-profit organization whose mission is to achieve prevention and a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime by providing critical funding for innovative clinical and genetic research at leading medical centers worldwide, while increasing public awareness about good breast health.
Since its inception, the Foundation has raised more than $120 million to support clinical research at cancer centers across the globe conducting the most advanced and promising breast cancer research into new therapies and genetic links that will help lead to prevention and a cure.
A minimum of 85% of all funds raised goes to breast cancer research grants and awareness programs. To find out more about the BCRF please visit www.bcrfcure.org
Breast Cancer doesn't just happen in October. The American Cancer Society estimates that in the United States alone there will be well over 200,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer diagnosed this year. That's almost 600 new cases per day.
Major accomplishments in breast cancer research have been made possible by grants from BCRF. Several new drugs are in pre-clinical or clinical development, and more than six different vaccines to treat and prevent breast cancer are also being tested. Additionally, advancements in the fight on breast cancer will have far reaching benefits in the fights on other cancers.
