Let’s say you’re a woman who has been diagnosed with breast cancer and you’re wondering why you should donate your hard-earned money to the Breast Health and Healing Foundation. You might ask yourself, “Why do I need to know if a virus caused my breast cancer? I already have the disease. I need a cure!” Let me explain. The reason it’s so important for a breast cancer survivor to know if a virus caused her tumor is because if so, then the virus is still with you, waiting to make a come back. The cancer might return in the breast where the cancer was first diagnosed, in the opposite breast, or elsewhere in the body. It might even come back as another cancer, like non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma! This is why completing the research on the breast cancer virus is critically important for women who already have the disease. You see, your treatment might change drastically – for the better – once scientists understand this virus better. The human breast cancer virus belongs to the same family of viruses as HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. When was the last time you heard of anyone with AIDS? At least 50,000 people are diagnosed with HIV in the United States every year, but new combination antiviral medications now keep these patients alive and AIDS-free, unlike 30 years ago when they died by the thousands every day. Research on the breast cancer virus is vitally important for all women, but it’s essential for breast cancer survivors to get this question answered as soon as possible so that new and improved treatments can be made available to them. If you’re a woman who has not had breast cancer, then you are at risk. You, too, have a dog in this fight, for this disease sure looks like a virus-driven epidemic.
Now you understand why it’s so important for all women, but especially survivors, to know if a virus causes breast cancer. And, so, you’ll want to donate to the Breast Health and Healing Foundation (501c3) because it’s the only breast cancer foundation dedicated to completing research on the human breast cancer virus and supporting scientists who are working on vaccines to prevent the disease and its recurrence.
Donate to the Breast Health and Healing Foundation today and help us nail the breast cancer virus so we can provide what women everywhere in the world are most in need of – the Pure Cure, by which I mean real and absolute prevention.
