One Million Women :: One Research Goal :: One Revolutionary Opportunity

working for a future without breast cancer 
 
It's been eight years since the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation and the Avon Foundation launched the Army of Women, a groundbreaking initiative that partners women with breast cancer researchers to find the key to what causes breast cancer and take science beyond a cure to prevention. 

Women have taken personal action to raise millions of dollars by walking, running, and donating to the fight against breast cancer. These dollars have helped advance breast cancer treatment and move us closer to a cure. But there is still no prevention. Now the Army of Women offers a singular new opportunity -- a simple but revolutionary call to action for one million healthy women of all ages and ethnicities to join the “Army” and be available to take part in the research that will help scientists understand the causes of breast cancer—and how to end it once and for all.

The unique impact of the Army of Women is that it serves as an online resource providing researchers much-needed and unprecedented, timely access to healthy women -- a critical component to prevention research. At the same time, the program offers women the opportunity to play a significant, direct role in helping eradicate breast cancer. Virtually all women not currently undergoing breast cancer treatment, including healthy women, breast cancer survivors, and women who are high risk for developing breast cancer, can enroll in the Army of Women online at www.armyofwomen.org, providing basic information and indicating their willingness to consider participation in future research studies.
