A Call to Action for Diversity in Research Studies

Written by Elaiza Torralba, Research Intern

Racial and ethnic minorities make up about 40 percent of the United States, but they are not very well represented in research studies. Researchers have pointed out that 'ignoring the racial/ethnic diversity of the US population is a missed scientific opportunity to fully understand factors that lead to disease or health.'1

Letter from the CEO

Dear Friends,

2017 has picked up right where 2016 left off. We continue to move forward on all our projects and studies without pause. And, while we are focused on what's coming next, I want to share with you two accomplishments from last December.

Letter from the CEO

Dear Friends,

2016 flew by! It's hard to believe this year is almost over. Like so many others do, I thought I'd give you our list of highlights from this year. But, please read on because as great as this year has been, the real accomplishment is the foundation for growth we have built that is propelling us into next year.

Here's a glimpse of how we spent our time - and your donations - this year:

Letter from the CEO

Dear Friends,

As we look forward to Thanksgiving, I find myself reflecting on some of the amazing things that have happened this year at the Foundation thanks to your support.

What comes to mind first is the Metastatic Breast Cancer Collateral Damage Project's Two-Day Think Tank held just over a week ago. Participants described it as 'transformative,' 'powerful,' and 'revolutionary.' Indeed, it was all those things and more to the people there.

HER2-Positive

Breast cancer is not just one disease. Some breast tumors are HER2-positive. In this video you will learn about how tumors are tested to see if they are HER2-positive and about treatments available for women whose tumors are HER2-positive.

LCIS

LCIS is an acronym for lobular carcinoma in situ. LCIS is typically diagnosed after a breast biopsy. It is not breast cancer, but it does increase breast cancer risk. In this video, you will learn about LCIS and how it is treated.

Letter from the CEO

Dear Friends,

October is now past the half way point, which means we're in the final stretch of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. That does not mean we're almost done with our work or will ease up on any of our activities after October. In fact, if anything, we're gearing up for more research in the coming months. I'm happy to share some exciting things happening at the Foundation.
