Defeating Breast Cancer

through Awareness, Research and Prevention


Cancer is the second leading killer of women in the United States after heart disease. While late stage cancer has a high mortality rate, many early breast cancers are curable with timely and appropriate treatments. For example, the five-year survival rate for Stage 0 breast cancer patients is 93% while that for Stage IV patients is only 15%. The mortality rate for metastic breast cancer today is the same as it was 40 years ago?
That is why increased risk assessment and early detection efforts yield the biggest dividends and why we focus our efforts on furthering risk assessment and early detection.

 

Our foundation dedicates its resources to help funding for genetic testing for high risk women within our own community. We want women who are at risk to be able to receive all genetic testing to aid in early detection, regardless of their financial situation. We are committed to our community, and are showing that commitment by partnering with the Parker Family Health Center’s “Women’s Breast Health Initiative”.

She delivered her baby boy early to begin an even more intense treatment program that included more chemotherapy, a stem cell transplant, radiation, and hormone therapy. Crissy’s prognosis was not good, but she fought hard and lived another twelve years. She resumed playing…
