Supporting Breast Cancer Research
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is the world’s largest private funder of breast cancer research, supporting the work of 275 scientists at leading medical and academic institutions in 15 countries across six continents.

The most common cancer in women worldwide, breast cancer is very close to the Overwatch team’s heart, with many of their friends and family having been personally affected by the devastating disease. The team is dedicated to helping advance breast cancer research, and Overwatch players can join us in supporting this noble cause.

Pink Mercy
As a brilliant scientist and the guardian angel of Overwatch, Dr. Angela Ziegler, known by her codename Mercy, has dedicated her life to helping and healing others. From May 8-21, players can show their support for breast cancer research as Mercy, in her new Pink Mercy skin.
