Another Study Closed to Recruitment Thanks to YOUR Support

Saliva samples contain biomarkers—biological markers than can indicate whether or not you have a disease or are likely to develop one.  Biological markers also can be used to predict whether a tumor will respond to certain cancer treatments.  A research team at Yale University, led by Dr. Joanne Weidhaas, has identified biomarkers that can be [...]

Today is Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day

October 13 is Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day, and we feel it’s very  important that there is at least one day in October dedicated to acknowledging that not everyone is cured and not every cancer is found early.  Today we honor women like Nancy, Terri, and Dolores, who share their stories with us to spread [...]

Breast Cancer Survivors: Let’s Get Physical!

Research has shown that physical activity after breast cancer improves quality of life, reduces fatigue, and may reduce a woman’s risk of breast cancer recurrence or death. This study is evaluating a new program called BEAT Cancer. It was [...]

In this post, we’d like to [...]
