The American Cancer Society has played a role in nearly every major breast cancer research breakthrough in recent history, including:

  • Establishing mammography as the standard for breast cancer screening
  • Discovering lifesaving treatments, such as Herceptin and Tamoxifen
  • Discovering genes that cause breast cancer
  • Confirming the knowledge that genetics, body weight, lack of exercise, and alcohol use can increase breast cancer risk by 34 percent.

The dollars you raise help make a difference!

  • $20 could help provide one night of lodging for a breast cancer patient and caregiver traveling far away from home for treatment
  • $50 could provide seven rides to and from treatment
  • $100 could help guide four women facing breast cancer through every step of their breast cancer journey through a specialized kit.
