Raising research dollars for breast cancer is an urgent need. That’s why Susan G. Komen® NC Triangle to the Coast set its “Bold Goal” to reduce breast cancer deaths in the U.S by 50 percent by 2026. We also recognize that the leading cause of breast cancer death is metastatic breast cancer (MBC).
Pam Kohl, the name behind Pam’s Parade, said it best. “Death from metastatic breast cancer is unacceptable. Now is the time to focus on the only breast cancer that kills. Research is hope for those fighting metastatic breast cancer today, and for those who will be diagnosed tomorrow.”
That urgent need for research dollars is why it’s important that you not only join our team this year, but you also raise money for it. We have a team goal of $5,000. And in 2020, we have a special mission to supercharge. Keep reading...
Because two of the world’s most renowned cancer centers doing research on MBC are based here in the Research Triangle, Susan G. Komen® NC Triangle to the Coast has created the first-of-its-kind MBC Research Initiative to ignite collaboration on fast track lifesaving research for MBC between Duke University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. By leveraging local expertise and removing research silos that slow progress, new ways for patients to live well and longer will be discovered.
Your ACTIVE participation in Pam’s Parade will help with this BOLD, UNIQUE, GROUNDBREAKING effort, because this strategy will be led by our friend Pam, a “Forever Fighter” dealing personally with MBC. Pam is moving from eight years as Executive Director of Komen NCTC to become the Affiliate’s Director of the Metastatic Breast Cancer Initiative. That’s the mission we need you to supercharge!
Please join Pam’s Parade today, and then share our story so that your friends join you on our team. It’ll go a long way to raise significant funds to support local programs and cutting-edge collaborative research, which will enable us to save more lives from the tragedy of breast cancer.
