Scientists have spent billions of dollars researching breast cancer. But as Susan Love, MD, president of the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation, points out, very little of that research has focused on preventing the disease. Love has partnered with the Avon Foundation to create the Army of Women, a site devoted to signing up a million healthy volunteers for just this type of research. The commitment is only what you want it to be; women might be asked simply to donate blood, saliva, or small amounts of tissue. "We'll be like the eHarmony of breast cancer research," says Love, "matching women with scientists." To sign up, visit ArmyofWomen.org.
