About the Campaign

With breast cancer being the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the world (1), ELC remains committed to improving the lives of everyone affected by the disease.

Together, The Estée Lauder Companies Breast Cancer Campaign and The Estée Lauder Companies Charitable Foundation (ELCCF) have funded more than $108 million globally for life-saving research, education and medical services. More than $86 million has funded medical research grants through the BCRF.

Founded in 1993 by Evelyn H. Lauder, BCRF is dedicated to promoting the world’s most promising research. ELC’s commitment to breast cancer research, spanning three decades, has been transformational. In partnership with BCRF, The Campaign has helped drive research across the spectrum of disease, from tumor biology, lifestyle and genetics, survival, treatment and metastasis, leaving an indelible mark on the diagnosis, care and prevention of breast cancer. In addition, The Campaign supports more than 60 organizations that facilitate real change aligned with the diverse needs of local communities.

Breast cancer deaths have decreased by 42% in the US since the late 1980s (2). However, that progress has not been equally experienced, and certain populations are at increased risk of adverse breast cancer outcomes. At any age, black women in the US are more likely to die from breast cancer than any other race or ethnic group, and death rates remain 41% higher than white women, despite lower incidence (3).

The Campaign has supported and continues to support BCRF-funded research that identifies and addresses disparities that exist across the breast cancer landscape. The ELCCF’s $15 million gift over five years will fund a new BCRF research initiative to accelerate the Campaign’s goal of reducing breast cancer disparities and improving outcomes.

This comprehensive study of the intersection of social determinants of health, comorbidities, and breast cancer biology in black women has the potential to significantly impact breast cancer disparities globally. It will help advance personalized breast cancer care through prevention, diagnosis and treatment for those most at risk of dying from the disease, and has the potential to be groundbreaking for the global cancer community. from mom
