I want to begin the New Year by sending a heartfelt thank you to each and every one of you who contributed to our year-end appeal. I couldn’t have imagined a better way to step into 2012 than with the show of support you provided through your generous donations totaling more than half a million dollars!
I know that many of you have watched and have been inspired by the short video message I posted talking about the Foundation’s research and our goals for 2012. If you haven’t had the opportunity to see it yet, you can view the video here.
I also want to share with you the list of New Year’s Resolutions we developed at the Foundation. If there are any you think that we should add to the list, please let me know!
The Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation’s New Year’s Resolutions
- We will work creatively and ferociously to find the cause of breast cancer and end this disease.
- We will work to convince researchers to shift the paradigm of breast cancer research from animal models to women.we have an Army of Women ready to go!
- We will ask the questions that no one wants to tackle and conduct the risky research that has the potential to lead to the big rewards.
- We will involve all of you in the Health of Women study, so that we can track all of the factors that may be involved in breast cancer and its recurrence!
- We will use our website to keep you abreast and critical about what new research findings really mean.
- We will look for new ways to bring together the efforts of all the breast cancer non-profits and funders to focus on projects that will end this disease.
- We will make our supporters proud of their decision to fund the Foundation’s research efforts to go beyond a cure.
Wishing you all the best in 2012!
P.S. If you haven’t made your year-end donation, I hope that you will take the time today to support the Foundation as we move breast cancer beyond a cure. All donations are tax deductible. And you don’t have to make a huge gift to make a difference. Each contribution ”whether it’s $10 or $100 or $1,000 helps move us closer to our goal: the eradication of breast cancer.
