The Mission: Cure Breast Cancer
We have come so far and we are so close to the dream of a breast cancer free world. We discovered the estrogen receptor and created tamoxifen to shut it down. We discovered the Her2 receptor (the most deadly of breast cancers) and created Herceptin to shut it down. We can now kill most breast cancers and stop many of them in their tracks. The vast majority of breast cancers can now be fended off for a long time, giving women the opportunities to experience life with their families. Mothers now have the chance to watch their daughters grow up and become mothers themselves.
