Thank you for visiting my 3-day, 60- mile walking for a cure page!
Your support and kind donation will help to improve early breast cancer detection and treatment, decrease mortality rates and advance research to end breast cancer forever.
Komen funded researchers are active:
Developing and testing new and improved treatments for metastatic breast cancer starting with an understanding of the biology of breast cancer and how it spreads.
Developing better treatments for aggressive forms of breast cancer and those that tend to become resistant to treatment and become metastatic.
Identifying the factors that contribute to breast cancer disparities and developing tools and methods to improve access and utilization of quality breast cancer care among vulnerable populations.
Using Big Data and transformative technology such as artificial intelligence to fuel scientific discoveries and accelerate the delivery of equitable, patient-focused care.
Komen’s Research Pipeline has more than 160 active research grants resulting in:
- 250 new research products - drugs, biomarkers, devices, etc.
- Over 60 new therapies, more than half of which are focused on metastatic breast cancer
- 60 new strategies to reduce breast cancer disparities like better healthcare delivery methods.
Please partner with me to invest in finding a cure.
With a grateful heart,
