Iowa BCD2020 Action Network

It is time to acknowledge the benefit we have achieved from awareness, and move forward with a new approach. The National Breast Cancer Coalition (NBCC) has set a deadline to know how to end breast cancer by January 1, 2020. We know that the only way we can truly end this disease is to make sure no one gets it in the first place.

As one of the actions we are taking in figuring out how to prevent breast cancer, NBCC is currently working with researchers and patient advocates on the Artemis Project for a preventive breast cancer vaccine. That’s right, a vaccine for breast cancer. Imagine a world where we do not have to worry about toxic treatments because no one needs to be treated. No one gets breast cancer. No one dies of breast cancer. A vaccine would do the one thing awareness cannot — save the lives of the women and men we love.

It is time to move from awareness to prevention. If much of the resources that are currently directed at breast cancer awareness were redistributed to prevention, imagine how much faster we could start saving lives. Until then, complacency will be the status quo in breast cancer. It’s time to stop advocating for the disease and instead advocate for a deadline to know how to end breast cancer. That deadline is January 1, 2020.

Help us save lives. We need women and men like you to take meaningful action. Learn more about Breast Cancer Deadline 2020.
