Army of Women

 

Launched in 2008, Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation’s Army of Women® is a revolutionary initiative changing the face of breast cancer research. Our goals are:

  • To recruit women and men of every ethnicity with and without a breast cancer diagnosis and those of high risk.
  • To connect researchers with women and men who are willing to participate in breast cancer research studies. Studies range from those investigating the causes of breast cancer and how to prevent it, to quality of life issues experienced during and after treatment, to drugs for prevention or treatment of metastatic breast cancer.
  • To challenge the scientific community to expand its current focus to include breast cancer prevention research conducted on people.

"Over and over I've heard scientists lament how difficult it is for them to find the volunteers they need for research studies. I've long believed that helping scientists overcome this obstacle would accelerate our understanding of what causes breast cancer and how to end it. By responding to this need, the Army of Women will change the face of breast cancer research."
