Take Part in Research

Though breast cancer affects 1 in 8 women on average in her lifetime, 7 out of 8 women (the majority) are not diagnosed with breast cancer. Understanding why these women remain cancer free will help to shed light on what causes breast cancer. The Love/Avon Army of Women is looking for volunteers to take part in this kind of research. The initiative is looking to recruit women of all ages, ethnicities, sizes, and shapes; both women who have had breast cancer and women who have not. It also invites male breast cancer survivors and men who have immediate relatives who’ve been diagnosed.

The Health of Women Study, through the Dr. Susan Love Foundation, is an international online study for women and men with and without a history of breast cancer. Researchers will collect information about your health, your job, your diet, and your family history, among other topics that can help them to get a better understanding of breast cancer and its potential causes over time.

If you sign up, you will periodically receive questionnaires to complete online.
