Edith Sanford Breast Cancer will pioneer the future of breast cancer research and care. By piecing together the entire genetic puzzle of each woman, we are discovering how to revolutionize treatment and eradicate breast cancer. We are mobilizing participants—mothers, wives, sisters and daughters—to donate their genetic information as we build an extensive bio bank that will underpin our groundbreaking research. As we decode this deadly disease, we will know more specifically what treatments will work for each patient, how to prevent disease on an individual basis, and ultimately, how to find a cure.
