Two critically important issues surrounding breast cancer treatment/research
Avastin and the FDA
The FDA is considering taking away Avastin for metastatic breast cancer, not for safety reasons, but because current clinical studies didn't show that it extends lives as long as the FDA thinks it should. While the drug doesn't help everyone, many women respond well to it and have been able to continue to enjoy their lives and families.
PLEASE consider signing this petition: Avastin petition
Don't let the FDA take hope and life away from anyone who may need this.
Breast Cancer Vaccine
A second and potentially life-changing petition for breast cancer research: Help urge Congress to support research of a vaccine against breast cancer developed by Dr. Touhy of the Cleveland Clinic. It's been shown to prevent and stop breast cancer tumors in mice and needs funding for research with people. Please help!
