The Florida Breast Cancer Foundation (FBCF), strongly believes that to achieve our goal, we must have advocates who are trained and educated in the science of breast cancer, current breast cancer research data, and who know how to practice effective advocacy strategies.

To assist individuals interested in obtaining education and training in breast cancer research and advocacy, the Jane Torres Scholarship Fund was established. Jane, the founder of FBCF, was a critical and driving force behind the increase in funding for breast cancer research on both the National and State levels. Jane believed that with the appropriate funding and quality cutting edge research, we can end the breast cancer epidemic. 

If you would like to sharpen your advocacy skills or increase your knowledge of breast cancer by attending an educational conference, we encourage you to submit an application.
