UCSF Announces Expanded BreastCancerTrials.org Website
Date:9/30/2009

e radical mastectomies or chemotherapy were once the primary solution, many patients now have a variety of treatment options that can be personalized according to specific disease and genetic history. Our aim with BreastCancerTrials.org is to empower patients with knowledge and convenient access to the best treatment options available today, and to spur new discoveries that will inform breast cancer care of the future."

BreastCancerTrials.org was conceived by two breast cancer patients, turned patient advocates, Joan Schreiner and Joanne Tyler, who knew from Joan's experience how difficult it was to find clinical trials while dealing with the day-to-day demands of metastatic illness. Their own challenges prompted them to envision an easy-to-use website that could help other patients learn more about the role clinical trials play in advancing breast cancer care, and identify trials that might be right for each individual. Physicians at UCSF's Breast Care Center embraced Joan and Joanne's idea and in partnership with the NCI, built a prototype of BreastCancerTrials.org, and subsequently proved that it would work.

The Safeway Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Safeway Inc., has given the UCSF Carol Franc Buck Breast Care Center more than $1 million to launch the website service nationwide. With the goal of further revolutionizing breast cancer research and treatment, improving outcomes by providing patients with access to more information and options, and engaging patients more actively in their individual care, Safeway's support serves as a potential model for other institutions.

During Breast Cancer Awareness Month and beyond, BreastCancerTrials.org is creating alliances with some of the world's most respected advocacy organizations dedicated to advancing breast cancer awareness including:
