Mission Statement

  • To recruit ONE MILLION WOMEN of every age and ethnicity, including breast cancer survivors, women who have never had breast cancer and women at high-risk for the disease, to partner with breast cancer researchers and directly participate in the research that will eradicate breast cancer once and for all.
  • To challenge the scientific community to expand its current focus to include breast cancer prevention research conducted on healthy women.
  • To move breast cancer Beyond a Cure.

Description

The Love/Avon Army of Women is an initiative of the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation, thanks to a generous grant from the Avon Foundation for Women. It was launched on October 1, 2008 on the Today Show!

Over the past 25 years, billions of dollars have been raised to advance treatment and early detection of breastcancer, but researchers still do not know what causes the disease.

The Army of Women empowers men and women with a new opportunity - a simple but revolutionary call to action for one million people of all ages and ethnicities to join the "Army of Women" and consider serving as research volunteers to help scientists understand the causes of breast cancer - and how to end it once and for all.

To join takes about 2 minutes. Members receive emails once or twice a month alerting them to studies needing volunteers which, if they qualify, they may choose to participate in or not. In any case they will pass the email on to more woman so that studies can be filled quickly.
