Army of Women

If you are a woman or have a wife, mother, daughter ... this is a revolutionary project that needs your help. The Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation and the Avon Foundation have join forces to create the Army Of Women initiative. This project has two goals :

  1. "To recruit one million healthy women of every age and ethnicity, including breast cancer survivors and women at high-risk for the disease, to partner with breast cancer researchers and directly participate in the research that will eradicate breast cancer once and for all."

  2. "To challenge the scientific community to expand its current focus to include breast cancer prevention research conducted on healthy women."

Unfortunately, this project is currently only open to women residing in the U.S. because, at this time, it only involves American researchers. They are hoping to open the project up internationally in the near future. However, I know there are American gals / guys who read this blog and my Canadian readers all probably know at least one American woman that they can share this information with. This is an important, fresh approach to finding a cause and cure for breast cancer that will benefit all women. The link for the project is here. Pass it on!!!
