Will you join the Army of Women?

I've told you about my philosophy about funding for breast cancer research. And you know that I am participating in the Susan G. Komen 3 Day next October in honor of my mom.  But there is another organization that is leading a breast cancer research surge.  The Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation's Love/Avon Army of Women. 

The Army of Women's goal is to:
  • To recruit one million healthy women of every age and ethnicity, including breast cancer survivors and women at high-risk for the disease, to partner with breast cancer researchers and directly participate in the research that will eradicate breast cancer once and for all.
  • To challenge the scientific community to expand its current focus to include breast cancer prevention research conducted on healthy women.
Dr. Susan Love is leading the movement to go beyond education and awareness and focus on the hard science that will one day find the cause and cure for breast cancer (a cause near and dear to my heart).

Will you please take a moment to join the Army of Women?  Women of all ages, ethnicities and risks — whether you have had breast cancer or not — are needed now! It's easy and who knows, one day your contribution could save the life of someone you love.  You can visit to learn more and add yourself to the growing list of women trying to make a difference!
