Funding Breast Cancer Research at Mayo Clinic
As you likely know, October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It is a time dedicated to making the public aware of breast cancer and the importance of early detection of the disease through self-checks and mammograms. But what is the next step after awareness has been made?
Funding critical research to fight the disease and find a cure.
That is why The Breast Cancer Site has created The Breast Cancer Site Endowed Fund for Breast Cancer Research at Mayo Clinic.
Mayo Clinic is the one of the world’s most distinguished facilities, providing care, medical research, and education. The not-for-profit organization thoroughly diagnoses and treats complex medical problems in every specialty. Because of its outstanding reputation, more than 16,000 new cancer patients visit Mayo Clinic each year.
The Endowed Fund for Breast Cancer Research will support Mayo’s mission of continually searching for better methods of diagnosing and treating diseases. Once fully funded, interest earned from the endowed fund will support the salary of a breast cancer researcher at Mayo Clinic. The structure of the endowed fund allows The Breast Cancer Site to sustain breast cancer research in perpetuity.
It is important to note that Mayo Clinic, Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research (MFMR), and Mayo’s fundraising efforts do not endorse any companies, their related partners, manufacturers, or products. The organization is strictly about research, education, and care based on the idea of “cooperative medicine,” which allows many experts to pool their knowledge, skills, and experience to solve patient’s medical problems.
