The Love/Avon Army of Women is driven by two key partnerships that will accelerate the research necessary to discover ways to prevent breast cancer: a partnership between the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation and the Avon Foundation for Women, and a partnership between scientists and women.
“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.”
The Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit breast cancer organization, working to eradicate breast cancer and improve the quality of women’s health through innovative research, education, and advocacy.
