Join the Army of Women to End Breast Cancer
Thursday, October 14, 2010
The Love/Avon Army of Women offers a revolutionary new opportunity for YOU to partner with research scientists to move us beyond a cure…and it is one of the absolute easiest ways to get involved with this cause. Their goal is to recruit one million healthy women of every age and ethnicity (including breast cancer survivors and women at high-risk for the disease) to partner with breast cancer researchers and participate in the research that will eradicate breast cancer once and for all.
With a long family history of Breast Cancer, I can testify to the important of this movement. Plus, as my mom is participating in one of their studies, I can tell you first hand how easy it is to do your part.
How it works: Women (and men) who are interested can register on the Love/Avon Army of Women website, and provide very basic information such as name, age, city and state of residence. Army of Women members receive email updates from the Love/Avon Army of Women announcing new research studies looking for volunteers. If you fit the criteria for one of these studies and want to participate, all you need to do is reply to the email and let them know you’ve accepted the “Call to Action.”
