Mission Statement

The Hormonal Cancer Foundation's mission is to promote information about the risks of estrogen based medications and breast cancer. For women who do not metabolize estrogen effectively, exposure to estrogen based medications, such as in vitro fertility or hormone replacement therapy, may dramatically raise breast cancer risk. This risk may be assessed through genetic testing. Once tested, women can avoid the medications, or for women who have already been exposed or have estrogen positive breast cancer, the risk may be mediated through the use of certain supplements.

Description

Our goal is to raise awareness of this information to the general public and to physicians, to promote the further study of the link between breast cancer and in vitro fertilization and the adaptation of the interventions by pharmacy companies and physicians.

Babs Riley, Founder of the Hormonal Cancer Foundation, was diagnosed with an aggressive breast cancer in 2009 after 3 rounds of IVF in 2004 and 2005. Shortly after her diagnosis, she learned about a in-office study being conducted by the Institute for Individualized Medicine. Once recovered from treatment, she conducted extensive research on the studies and the field. Once satisfied with the body of work she founded the charity and website www.ivfbreastcancer.com.

The Hormonal Cancer Foundation recently received 501c3 status from the IRS and now intend to raise money in order to promote this information and to further the research in this area with a particular emphasis on in-vitro fertilization.
