About the Noreen Fraser Foundation
The Noreen Fraser Foundation's mission is to use education and awareness campaigns to raise funds for translational cancer research aimed at developing new prevention methods, diagnostic tools and non-toxic therapies to treat women’s cancers. The programs urge women to be proactive and have regular screenings. NFF's hope is that until there are cures, women’s cancers will become manageable diseases controlled with targeted therapies that protect patients’ quality of life.
NFF supports research for all women’s reproductive cancers (breast, ovarian, cervical and uterine/endometrial) because not only is there a strong hormonal and biological link between the women’s cancers including hereditary cancer syndromes but also because research in one type of women’s cancer oftentimes progresses research in the other types of women’s cancers. A multi-disciplinary approach and collaboration among researchers in the various fields of women’s cancers is absolutely necessary to accelerate the development of reasonable treatment options and potential cures. Women’s cancer research has also lead to progress in treating cancers in other parts of the body and will continue to do so in the future. Why fund research aimed at curing one cancer when you can focus on several and have a greater impact?
