Seventy percent of Americans do not itemize their taxes—new tax laws could cause that number to rise to 95% and result in charitable giving decreasing by $16 to $24 billion every year.

The Everyday Philanthropist Act would allow everyday, working Americans to receive tax deductions for their charitable giving, allowing everyone to give to causes important to them. Click to learn more.

For women who have had an abnormal screening result or breast cancerArmy of Women - abnormal breast screening

Recruiting - Women age 35 or older with a past breast cancer diagnosis OR a recent abnormal breast screening result (clinical breast exam, breast MRI,or mammogram).

Purpose: A research team at Johns Hopkins wants to learn how to improve access to follow-up care for women who get an abnormal breast cancer screening result. To learn what care women do or don’t get, the research team is having about 500 women who received abnormal results from a mammogram, breast MRI, or clinical breast exam or a diagnosis of breast cancer complete a 30-minute survey about their healthcare experiences.

An Earlier Dinner may lower risk of cancerDinner together

People who eat dinner before 9 p.m. -- or at least two hours before going to sleep -- have a 20% lower risk of breast and prostate cancer than those who eat after 10 p.m. or go to bed shortly after supper, researchers found.The results of the study are fairly consistent with previous research, said Catherine Marinac, a research fellow at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Marinac's own research suggests that eating in tune with the body's natural clock may help reduce the risk of breast cancer recurrence in survivors. To read the complete article click here

MBC Treatment Trials - there are no placebos! 

MBC trial search

Metastatic breast cancer treatment trails compare a new treatment to the standard of care (the current best treatment available). Some people worry they will get a placebo instead of an effective treatment in a clinical trail.  However, even those who don't get the new treatment will still recieve the standard treatment, just as they would if they did not join the trail. Click here to access the updated Metastatic Trial Search tool, this is the first-ever clinical trail search engine designed specifically for people with metastatic breast cancer.

Why do we RACE and Fundraise for breast cancer cures?

  • Because 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
  • Because every 19 seconds, somewhere in the world, a case of breast cancer is diagnosed in a woman.
  • Because every 60 seconds, somewhere in the world, someone dies from breast cancer; every 13 minutes, one woman in the U.S. will lose her life to breast cancer.
  • Because in Tidewater1716 women and men will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year.
  • Because it’s time to go beyond breast cancer awareness. It’s time to take action!
