The Noreen Fraser Foundation (NFF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for breakthrough research that advances precision medicine for the prevention and treatment of women’s cancers. Our hope is that cancer will become a manageable disease that patients will live with and not die from, until it ceases to exist.
Why NFF? Because we have a stake in the matter! We are patient powered. 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 prevention and targeted treatments. NFF’s dedicated board of directors, stellar medical/scientific advisory team, and ardent supporters share Noreen’s passion for advancing precision medicine for women’s cancers above all else.
NFF supports research for all women’s cancers (breast and reproductive: ovarian, cervical, and uterine/endometrial). Some women are at risk for both breast and reproductive cancers. We support collaborative, multi-disciplinary team science that accelerates the development of precision medical treatments and prevention approaches.
The research we fund is focused on making a real impact on women’s lives now. We admire the tremendous philanthropic and grassroot effort that has increased cancer research funding — we have been a part of it. But it has left us feeling that this pot of money has been been divided amongst thousands of researchers and thousands of ideas, diluting its impact.
We work directly with our internationally renowned medical and scientific advisers to fund research that will make an impact on the lives of women with cancer quickly.Visit Site
