About Instituto Projeto Cura

Instituto Projeto Cura is a non-for-profit institution; it is the only one in Latin America that seeks to raise public awareness about the benefits of cancer researches, in order to create a culture of philanthropy to finance such researches.

In a wide network of collaborators, Cura counts on the support of researchers, oncologists, radiologists, surgeons and other health professionals who carry out different types of research.

About the disease

Every year 620,000 new cases of cancer are recorded in Brazil (INCA, 2020). Breast cancer corresponds to almost 30% of cancer diagnoses among Brazilian women (INCA, 2020) and responds for 16% of deaths caused by cancer among women (INCA, 2019). Such scenario imposes the need to encourage new public policies and new technologies to improve the outcomes of such patients.
