Promising Research for Breast Cancer Vaccine

News headlines today report that there is a promising study showing a potential vaccine for breast cancer! Researchers at the Cleveland Clinic's Lerner Research Institute report that they have seen "overwhelmingly favorable results" in their clinical trials on animals.


It's a bit premature to celebrate, I suppose, given that the research has only been conducted so far on mice - and jumping from mice to humans is a big leap. There is still work to be done to turn this research into clinical treatments. And that means there is still money needed to fund this and other critical research.

But this is pretty darned good news. Won't it be great when we can vaccinate against breast cancer, removing it from our modern medicine landscape forever?

This is why I'm walking 60 miles over 3 days. So that I can contribute crucial funding to the fight against breast cancer, taking the form of research for vaccines, new treatments, therapy, and support.

Won't you please donate today?
