NONPROFIT MEMBER: Dr. Susan Love Foundation for Breast Cancer Research
Dr. Susan Love Foundation for Breast Cancer Research challenges the status quo to end breast cancer and improve the lives of people impacted by it now through education and advocacy. In 2020, the Foundation was recognized by both Charity Navigator and Medical News Today as the #1 breast cancer research organization in the U.S. These honors measure both stewardship of resources and subsequent impact. Through our signature program, Love Research Army, we are thoughtfully engaging over 900,000 supporters by providing them with ongoing, real-time access to an array of breast cancer studies aimed at finding cause and ultimately ending breast cancer. The Foundation drives collaborative, cutting-edge research with nontraditional partners, brings to light the collateral damage of treatment and seeks ways to diminish it, and interprets science to empower patients. Fast, flexible, and project-based, the Foundation actively engages the public in scientific research to ensure that it produces accurate and meaningful results. We believe that finding the cause of breast cancer lies at the intersection of research, development + love. We must look in unexplored places and rally our supporters around the globe. By supporting the work of innovative researchers, encouraging diverse science, empowering an army of advocates, and facilitating studies for everyone affected by the disease, with love, we know it’s only a matter of time before we win this fight for our lives.
