The Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation, an accredited 501(c)(3) public charity, was founded in 1983 to eradicate breast cancer and improve the quality of women's health through innovative research, education, and advocacy. Since 2005, the Foundation has received more than six million dollars to pursue its own prevention research; since 1998, the Foundation has awarded pilot grants totaling more than $900,000.
While advances have been made in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer, we still don't understand what causes breast cancer or how to prevent it. The Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation, thanks to a grant from the Avon Foundation for Women, launched the Love/Avon Army of Women initiative in October 2008, with the goal of recruiting one million women who are willing to participate in research that focuses on the causes of breast cancer and how to prevent it. Since its inception, a movement is sweeping across our nation. Already, more than 300,000 women have joined the Army of Women.
