For years, the Cancer Prevention Institute of California (CPIC) reported and studied alarming increases in breast cancer rates, particularly in California’s Marin County. Using data from our Greater Bay Area Cancer Registry
, CPIC’s breakthrough study revealed the correlation of hormone replacement therapy and breast cancer in California. When women stopped taking hormone therapies in 2002, CPIC was the first to notice and to report the rapid decline in breast cancer rates
, providing a compelling reason as to why the change occurred.
This is the way cancer prevention works!
Our finding and our subsequent studies demonstrated that hormone therapy was a major contributor to the high rates of breast cancer in the Bay Area and Marin County. Through this work, we empowered women with information that can help them protect themselves and make decisions about their health. With your support, we can continue to help women reduce their risk of breast cancer by continuing to produce groundbreaking and internationally recognized findings like these.
A donation of $100 or more to CPIC between Sept. 1 and Oct. 31, 2013 qualifies you for a chance to win a gift certificate for a two-night stay (restrictions apply) at the PlumpJack Squaw Valley Inn, located on the beautiful north shore of Lake Tahoe.
Thank you for helping CPIC in our pursuit of a world without cancer.
