Support Vital Breast Cancer Research

Breast cancer can adversely affect women's bones, and cancer treatment in particular can take a toll. These women develop signs of osteoporosis which includes bone loss and bone pain. Dr. Catherine Van Poznak, from the University of Michigan's Comprehensive Cancer Center, is studying ways to diagnose, treat, and prevent bone loss and discomfort among women diagnosed with breast cancer. She is also studying ways to identify breast cancers that are more likely to spread to the bone.

Donations through this Gift That Gives More™ will go towards supporting Dr. Van Poznak and her research team. Thank you!
