Download our public service announcements and promote our groundbreaking initiative to eradicate breast cancer, the Love/Avon Army of Women.
The Love/Avon Army of Women, an initiative of the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation, thanks to a generous grant from the Avon Foundation for Women offers a revolutionary new opportunity for YOU to partner with research scientists to move breast cancer beyond a cure.
Heading the Love/Avon Army of Women is Dr. Susan Love, a distinguished breast surgeon, a trusted breast cancer authority, a best-selling author on breast cancer and women’s health, and the President of the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation. The mission of the Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit breast cancer organization, is to eradicate breast cancer and improve the quality of women’s health through innovative research, education, and advocacy. The Foundation works to identify the barriers to research and to then create new solutions.
Our mission at the Love/Avon Army of Women is to enlist One Million Women to participate in breast cancer research. The Army of Women is dedicated to representing ALL women in breast cancer research so that the research results will apply to ALL women. We need women who have had breast cancer and women who have not. We need African American women, Asian women, Caucasian women, and Latinas of every age, faith and lifestyle to be involved.
Join us in this movement that will take us beyond a cure by creating new opportunities to study what causes breast cancer—and how to prevent it.
