Breast cancer strikes one in every eight women in the United States and remains the leading cause of cancer deaths in women ages 15 to 54. No one should ever die of this devastating disease—particularly young women who have the bulk of their lives ahead of them.
In an effort to address this problem, we’ve partnered with the pioneering Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle to set up a research fund in Rose’s name. Every dollar raised goes directly to funding scientific research in early onset breast cancer. There is much we still do not understand about this disease and every new discovery bring us one step closer to understanding how to stop all breast cancers. But we can’t do it alone.
Together with your help we hope to gain a better understanding of the way the disease works and why breast cancer continues to show up earlier and earlier in families with a genetic history. One day soon, we intend to find a cure.
Life indeed goes on. And even in this most difficult of economic times we must not diminish our commitment to finding a cure. Cancer isn’t affected by the economy but research is. If you are in a position to help fund much needed research, please contribute. One day someone close to you may be grateful that you did.
We thank you.
