For those Living with Breast Cancer
Roughly 528,018 young women are living with breast cancer worldwide.
Project 528 is a comprehensive global survey to identify and understand the most pressing needs of young women diagnosed with breast cancer, their caregivers, and the healthcare providers that support them. Twenty international organizations are working together to identify gaps in our collective knowledge and craft questions to address them. The survey and its insights will be translated into 8 languages and distributed globally.
Count Me In
Patients’ medical records, tumor samples, and personal experiences hold clues—about which cancers will respond or become resistant to which therapies—that often can’t be found in research labs or clinical trials. Count Me In enables cancer patients anywhere to share their information with researchers everywhere, to help reveal patterns in the data. 85% of US adults get cancer care at smaller centers that take care of the cancer, but don’t do research - so patient's medical records, tumor samples, etc. aren’t shared with researchers.
When We Trial
Black women are 41% more likely to die from breast cancer than white women.
Know the facts. Change the numbers. When black women participate in trials, they make a difference in breast cancer research. If you are a black woman, please check this site out and if you aren't, please share this site with your black friends. It is critical that we get this word out.
