Love/ Avon Army of Women
Join the movement to go beyond a cure!
On October 1, 2008, the Avon Foundation and the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation announced their joint venture, the Love/Avon Army of Women. They are recruiting 1 million women to help find the answers to what causes breast cancer, and how can it be prevented? It's a revolutionary new opportunity for YOU to partner with research scientists to move us beyond a cure. Women with and without breast cancer are needed.
I remember the first time I met Dr. Love. After we talked, I was not only inspired by this incredible woman, but in my heart I felt that she may well hold the key to a future without breast cancer. That was 13 years ago and I still believe it!
