History

CBCF is the product of one child’s dedication to her mother’s cause. The genesis and inspiration of CBCF can be traced to Carly Abramson of New Jersey, after her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer for the first time.

  • 2003 – Carly, who was just 12 years old, made her mother a beaded key ring as a comfort gift. Fueled by love and undaunted by the challenges, Carly, with the help of friends and family, went on to raise more than $10,000 making and selling 700 key rings in the name of breast cancer research through BCA Creations, an organization she founded. These funds were donated directly to Dr. Larry Norton and colleagues at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, where her mother has been a patient.
  • 2007 – Proving that a small initiative could make a world of a difference and all too familiar with the heartbreak and despair associated with living with someone afflicted by breast cancer, Carly’s father, Andrew Abramson, President & CEO of Value Companies, was convinced that anything that can be done to advance the progress being made in cancer research should be a priority and that funds for research were a critical factor in furthering this work. Mr. Abramson was determined to use his financial expertise to do whatever he could to aid the cause and creating a foundation through which these funds could be channeled seemed to be the best way to proceed. As a result…
  • October 2007 - Carly founded the Cure Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. (CBCF), with help from her father, Andrew Abramson, President and CEO of Value Companies, Inc., a leading real estate development, investment and management company based in Clifton, New Jersey.
  • November 2007 - CBCF is recognized as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization created to raise money for breast cancer research under the direction of Dr. Larry Norton, who is the Scientific Advisor of the Foundation, at the world-renowned Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York and other national and international research facilities.
  • August 2013 – To date, CBCF has raised over $5 million.
