Mission

Dr. Susan Love Foundation for Breast Cancer Research challenges the status quo to end breast cancer and improve the lives of people impacted by it now through education and advocacy. The Foundation drives collaborative, cutting-edge research with nontraditional partners, brings to light the collateral damage of treatment and seeks ways to diminish it, and interprets science to empower patients. Fast, flexible, and project-based, the Foundation actively engages the public in scientific research to ensure that it produces accurate and meaningful results. The Love Research Army is committed to encouraging and facilitating breast cancer research in all people, regardless of age, race, gender, sexual identity, with or without a breast cancer diagnosis.

Notes from the nonprofit

The Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation believes that the key to finding the cause and prevention of breast cancer is public participation in the process. We crowd-source input from the public to help drive our research agenda and encourage everyone to find ways that they can be part of the research process. We are always looking for innovative new approaches to research into the cause and prevention of breast cancer, as well as advocating for shifting more investment into finding the cause and eradicating the disease rather than continuing to focus research on incremental improvements in the cure.

Love Research Army

The Love Research Army is committed to encouraging and facilitating breast cancer research in all people, regardless of age, race, gender, sexual identity, with or without a breast cancer diagnosis. We combat the disparities that exist in research by challenging the scientific community to launch studies that are as inclusive and diverse as the people that breast cancer affects. We consistently and intentionally recruit members who are willing and excited to participate in breast cancer research. We are committed to thoughtfully engaging over 380,000 members by providing them with ongoing, real-time access to an array of studies.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is the achieve a future without breast cancer by focusing on the cause and prevention. We will do this by facilitating research, conducting research and collaborating with like-minded organizations to focus research on cause and prevention.

1) Facilitate research through innovative programs like our Love Research Army, which engages members of the public to participate in breast cancer research and enables researchers to cost-effectively recruit participants for their studies.
2) Conducting research that no one else is doing or will do, with an emphasis on collaboration.
