Breast Cancer Deadline 2020®: We are at the halfway point

January 1, 2015 marks the halfway point of our Breast Cancer Deadline 2020® campaign. For the past five years, we have been moving forward on our plan to know how to end breast cancer by January 1, 2020. From leading multiple meetings for both Artemis Projects®, to expanding our collaborators, recruiting and educating many dedicated advocates and securing bipartisan support for our signature legislation, the Accelerating the End of Breast Cancer Act, we have made significant progress.

But as we reach the midway point, the clock continues to tick—and we will need to push even harder. We need everyone who cares about breast cancer to be a part of this movement. To join NBCC, learn about the issues, work in your communities to change the conversation so that every discussion about and every act associated with breast cancer are all directed to answer the question: how can we end this disease once and for all.

If you want to help us achieve Breast Cancer Deadline 2020®, sign up today to attend the 2015 Advocate Leadership Summit. Because we will not end breast cancer without the right leadership. The Summit will give leaders, like you, an opportunity to learn about the issues and help others in your community envision a world where no one gets breast cancer and no one dies of it—and take actions to make sure that we know how to get there by January 1, 2020. The Summit is replete with the speakers, topics; skill building, message training and strategic planning that energize us for the important work in the year ahead.

 Make it a new year’s resolution to attend the Summit and get more involved in our Breast Cancer Deadline 2020® work. The importance of your involvement cannot be overstated. Register today.

Become a Breast Cancer Deadline 2020® Champion 

We have come to the midpoint of Breast Cancer Deadline 2020®, and that means many things. It means that we need to advocate even harder for our initiatives. It means that we need to educate more people about the need to end breast cancer. It also means we need the budget to support these efforts.

That is why we are launching a new fundraising campaign—Deadline 2020 Champions. NBCC’s Deadline 2020 Champions initiative gives you the tools you need to fund raise successfully. You will get benefits depending on how much you can give or get. You can quickly and easily set up a personal fundraising page and send the link to family, friends, co-workers; anyone who wants to support you.

We know that fundraising isn’t easy—but it is necessary to make the kind of impact we want to make in breast cancer (the kind that saves lives). NBCC will be there for you throughout the entire process. Grassroots fundraising has always been at the heart of what keeps Breast Cancer Deadline 2020® going, and it’s just another example of an effort we must accelerate as we come to this important milestone in our 10-year campaign.
