The organization is dedicated to providing critical funding to advance research at leading medical centers worldwide, and increasing public awareness about good breast health.

"The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is privileged to have jcpenney and its loyal customers join us in our fight against breast cancer," said Myra J. Biblowit, President of The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. "jcpenney has transformed the retail experience and it is especially rewarding to know that the company has made The Breast Cancer Research Foundation part of the customer experience this October. Research saves lives and we are so fortunate that the team at jcpenney is working diligently to be part of a cause that touches the lives of our mothers, our daughters, our sisters, and our friends every day."
