Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Outdoor Inspiration -

You can get emo­tional about breast can­cer. But we’d rather get prac­ti­cal, get sci­en­tific and get re­sults. Ev­ery ad­vance in the treat­ment of breast can­cer has come through clin­i­cal tri­als re­search – and that’s what Breast Can­cer Tri­als does. Ev­ery dol­lar we raise goes to­wards fund­ing our clin­i­cal tri­als. Ev­ery day, our re­search is sav­ing and im­prov­ing the lives of peo­ple af­fected by breast can­cer. Life-sav­ing drugs such as Her­ceptin®, Ex­emes­tane, Letro­zole and Tamox­ifen came through our clin­i­cal tri­als. Mil­lions of women in Aus­tralia and around the world are can­cer free to­day be­cause of the work we do. But there’s still more to be done. Breast can­cer in fe­males is the most com­monly di­ag­nosed can­cer in Aus­tralia, with 48 women di­ag­nosed ev­ery day. So let’s get prac­ti­cal about breast can­cer. Let’s get re­sults. DO SOME­THING THAT DOES SOME­THING. SUP­PORT BREAST CAN­CER CLIN­I­CAL TRI­ALS RE­SEARCH THAT’S IM­PROV­ING AND SAV­ING PEO­PLE’S LIVES.
