RESEARCH: Our research impact

Newsletter-Stationary-2018.jpg

ATL_Race 2017 Dr TorresI am proud to be a Susan G. Komen funded breast cancer researcher. When Komen announced its Bold Goal of reducing the current number of breast cancer related deaths in the U.S. by 50% by 2026, I was delighted to be a part of a distinct group of researchers that are at the forefront of this work. As the largest private funder of breast cancer research in the world, Komen is leading the charge to find the cures and end this disease. But how? The answer lies in focusing on research that addresses the most aggressive breast cancers, which is why a majority of Komen’s research portfolio does just that – focuses on the breast cancers that are more likely to end lives. We have made great strides, but there is still work to be done. With support from friends like you, we will ultimately see a world without breast cancer.
