Help Us Beat Breast Cancer
The generosity of many people and organizations allows us to explore promising new therapies for patients. Each contribution to the Breast Cancer Program at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center makes a difference in the lives of cancer patients at Johns Hopkins and around the world. Our physician-scientists are leading the way with scientific breakthroughs in breast cancer, and your donation will support patient care and innovative research that is translated to better, more effective treatments. We are also focusing on ways to prevent breast cancer and support survivors. Gifts may be designated to a specific faculty member.
Johns Hopkins is grateful for the support of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, both nationally and through the Maryland chapter. Komen provides essential support through grants for research and innovative patient cancer and survivorship products. The Breast Cancer Research Foundation provides support to Kimmel Cancer Center physician-scientists Ben Park, M.D., Ph.D., Vered Stearns, M.D., Kala Visvanathan M.B.B.S, Antonio Wolff, M.D., and Richard Zellars, M.D., for innovative translational research studies.

Support Breast Cancer Prevention Research
An increasing number of women around the world develop breast cancer every year. With screening mammography, we diagnose breast cancer earlier. Treatments have become more effective and, when we give them at an earlier stage, we prevent recurrences which are almost always fatal. Scientists are making discoveries which point the way to prevention. At Johns Hopkins, we've lead the way in understanding the biology of cancer. Our breast cancer physicians and scientists are working on new ways to prevent this disease, such as hormone replacement therapy, genetics, biomarkers, soy compounds and more. There is more work to be done and we need your help to sustain this work because prevention is an underfunded area of research.
The John Fetting Award in Breast Cancer Prevention will enable us to fund the most promising research in breast cancer prevention. Applications will be granted to the most promising work for a two year period. An Advisory Board will guide the identification of award receipients.
