Breast Cancer Research

My mum died of cancer. My aunt is a breast cancer survivor and my sister just completed chemotherapy and is at the moment undergoing radiation treatment for breast cancer. That makes me a high risk individual where cancer is concerned. Me and my other sister often talk about this. It is really quite scary.

That is why I am pleased to read about cureLauncher, an online community which raises funds for medical research and new breast cancer treatments. The community brings together donors, expert medical practitioners who are researching new treatments and cures including cancer survivors as well as those who are interested to enroll themselves for clinical trials for new breast cancer treatments. Currently, there are over 7,500 breast cancer trial locations across the U.S. 

At cureLauncher, over 90% of the funding received goes directly to new cancer treatments. There is a blog and a discussion area on the website. You can also read the FAQs to find out how to start a funding project to research a new treatment. There is also a live agent on hand to talk to you whether you are a patient or a donor. It is my  hope that with continuous funding and research, that one day we will find a cure for all kinds of cancers and make the world a better place.
