2023 Breast Cancer Facts and Figures
Every year, NBCC updates our advocates on the latest breast cancer statistics. In our newly available 2023 Breast Cancer Facts & Figures, the statistics are clear: As the second leading cause of cancer deaths for women in the United States, breast cancer remains a deadly disease. Our fight to end breast cancer must continue through our bold action and advocacy. We encourage advocates to use these Facts & Figures to stay educated, updated, and motivated.
Introducing Our New Director of Communications, Nicole Levins

The National Breast Cancer Coalition’s mission is to end breast cancer through the power of action and advocacy. Every dollar raised is immediately put to work by furthering scientific re
search, providing collaborative workshops and symposia, and advancing advocacy training and public policy work in Washington, DC, and in state capitals across the country.
Every minute counts in our efforts to achieve our mission of ending breast cancer. Every dollar equates to more lives saved. Your gift is more than a contribution. It is an investment that will enable us to end breast cancer once and for all.
