The National Cancer Institute estimates that in 2008
more than a quarter million women will have been diagnosed
with breast or gynecological cancers; just shy of 69,000 will
lose their lives to these diseases.
Thanks to the vision and
generosity of donors like you, Dana-Farber continues to offer
women diagnosed with cancer the best in care while pursuing
research that will lead to more effective and less toxic treatments.
Our scientists continue to make progress on many
fronts in their ongoing battle against these complex diseases.
There are many ways in which patients, families, and friends
can contribute as well.
