The California Breast Cancer Research Program (CBCRP) was established pursuant to passage by the California Legislature of the 1993 Breast Cancer Act (i.e., AB 2055 (B. Friedman) [Chapter 661, Statutes of 1993] and AB 478 (B. Friedman) [AB 478, Statutes of 1993]).

- The tax check-off, included on the personal income tax form since 1993, has drawn over $6 million for breast cancer research
- Ninety-five percent of our revenue goes directly to funding research and education efforts
- The CBCRP supports new approaches that other agencies may be reluctant to support, such as research on cow viruses, Tibetan herbs, and snake venom
- Since 1994, the CBCRP has awarded over $174 million in 725 grants to 89 institutions across the state.
- The CBCRP supports innovative breast cancer research—cow viruses, Tibetan herbs, snake venom—that might otherwise go unfunded. With continued investment, the CBCRP will work to find better ways to prevent, treat and cure breast cancer.The California Breast Cancer Research Program (CBCRP) was established pursuant to passage by the California Legislature of the 1993 Breast Cancer Act (i.e., AB 2055 (B.
