Why It Matters

 

      Why It Matters
       Because treatment-resistant breast cancers:

  • Account for more than 25% of all breast cancer deaths.
  • Do not respond to traditional therapies.
  • Are more likely to recur than other breast cancers.
  • Disproportionately affect premenopausal women, leaving young children without a mother.
  • Do not receive adequate funding from the National Institute of Health.

       We can:

  • Support the University of Florida research team working right now to eradicate these cancers!
  • Put monies raised locally to work locally!
  • Involve the Gainesville community in stopping these insidious cancers!
  • Keep another young child from losing his/her mother!
  • Improve the outcome for patients with treatment-resistant breast cancer!
