An Inside Look at the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade’s Impact – Funding Avon Centers of Excellence and Research Initiatives

By: All for the Breast Editorial Team, September 27, 2017

Currently, inequities in one’s ability to access quality breast cancer care exist across the U.S. The Avon Breast Cancer Crusade has seven Centers of Excellence at major academic medical centers. These centers ensure that underserved communities have access to state-of-the-art breast cancer care, regardless of their ability to pay, and advance scientific research. Their cutting-edge research focuses on two main areas: prevention and the exploration of better treatment options.

In the third part of our impact video series, we explore the Avon Centers of Excellence and their dedication to changing the course of breast cancer.

“The Centers of Excellence around the country that Avon funds all have different emphases but somewhat the same mission to broaden the services that we’re able to provide to patients.” – Judy Luce, Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital
