Molecular markers that predict future formation of malignant breast cancer

The Breast Cancer Prevention Research Initiative is one of many programs of the Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Crusade. The Avon Crusade first launched in 1992, and, through 2007, more than $525 million has been raised in over 50 countries worldwide to advance access to care and finding a cure for breast cancer, with a focus on the medically underserved. Funding is awarded to beneficiaries ranging from leading cancer centers to community-based nonprofit organizations for breast cancer outreach and education; screening and diagnostics; access to treatment; support services; and medical research. The Avon Crusade is the largest initiative of the Avon Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public charity with a mission to improve the lives of women, with a focus on breast cancer and domestic violence. For more information: avonfoundation.org.

Also taking place this week in San Francisco is the sixth annual Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, a weekend-long, 39-mile walk which will raise millions more dollars for the breast cancer cause. The Avon Walk San Francisco, a project of the Avon Foundation, is the sixth of nine Avon Walk events this year. The first five raised more than $30 million. Initial grants are awarded to local breast cancer organizations at the conclusion of each event, ensuring that funds immediately benefit the community, and additional grants are awarded nationwide throughout the year. The Avon Walk San Francisco commences early Saturday morning in Golden Gate Park and ends with a Closing Ceremony back at the same location at 3:00 pm Sunday. The event is expected to exceed last year's total of $5.6 million raised. For more information: avonwalk.org.
