On August 18, We Recognize the Research
Breast cancer advocacy and research is highlighted significantly in the month of October, but our fight against the disease needs to continue throughout the rest of the year. Recognizing that there needs to be more to highlight breast cancer and specifically the research that is being done to combat the disease outside the month of October, Dr. Susan Love Foundation decided to create a day that demonstrates our commitment to those who have battled and continue to battle breast cancer.
Dr. Susan Love Foundation is hopeful that World Breast Cancer Research Day will be a pivotal day in history that will allow us to achieve a breast cancer-free world.
About 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will develop invasive breast cancer in her lifetime.
We think that’s 1 too many. Which is why we are so committed to research.
We’re committed to an end to breast cancer.
About World Breast Cancer Research Day
World Breast Cancer Research Day is an opportunity for us to amplify the importance of finding a cure for breast cancer. The world does a fantastic job of showcasing breast cancer advocacy and research during the month of October, but this day is an attempt to show the breast cancer community that they are supported beyond that.
Although both women and men can have breast cancer and we are committed to finding a cure for everyone who is impacted by the disease regardless of gender, the 18th day of the 8th month of the year is indicative of the 1 in 8 women who will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetimes.
