Who is Noreen Fraser & what is the mission of her foundation?

Noreen Fraser was diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer in 2001. By 2003, her cancer had metastasized to her bones. After years of fighting, Noreen pledged to devote herself to raising money for focused research to find new techniques to prevent and fight cancer.
She started the Noreen Fraser Foundation in 2006 and recruited other survivors and prominent figures in the medical, entertainment, and business industries to join the organization. In 2008, Noreen Fraser co-created and co-produced the network television special STAND UP TO CANCER (“which raised over $100 million for cancer research”).
Prior to starting the Noreen Fraser Foundation, Noreen produced other award winning television shows including, ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT, ABC’s HOME SHOW and The RICHARD SIMMONS SHOW. Recently, Noreen has started working on producing a documentary about cancer’s effects and developing a television project that will serve to raise awareness for women’s cancers.
The mission of the Noreen Fraser Foundation (NFF) is to raise funds for women’s cancer research. NFF supports translational cancer research aimed at developing new prevention methods, diagnostic tools and non-toxic therapies to treat women’s cancers. Our hope is that until there are CURES, women’s cancers will become manageable diseases controlled with targeted therapies that protect patients’ quality of life. The Noreen Fraser Foundation is a 501(c) (3) tax-exempt organization.

What are some of the ways Stella & Dot’s past donations have helped in the fight against women’s cancers and breast cancer?

The Noreen Fraser Foundation (NFF) believes in an approach of focused funding- providing larger scale grants to specific research that aims to improve the standard of care and patient outcomes and of collaboration- demanding that all researchers receiving NFF funding share their research to hasten the fight against women’s cancers. Their internationally renowned medical advisors identify research that is aimed to be immediately translatable, meaning the research is geared toward improving the lives of women now, not ten years from now.

Since partnering in 2012, we have funded 8 women’s cancer research projects. These studies are helping to discover the root causes of women’s cancers including triple negative breast cancer, a form with the fewest treatment options. Another funded study has identified the numerous subtypes of cancer involving breast cancer. This study has been a leader in experimental therapies. We have previously also helped to fund the Prevention/Risk Reduction Initiative reaching millions of girls and adults that helps to educate young women about the importance of healthy behaviors early in their lives that may reduce the risk of breast cancer later on.
