Breast Cancer Research & Education Fund
More than 600,000 new cases of women’s cancers are diagnosed nationwide each year, and nearly 250,000 women die from these cancers annually. Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer, striking one in eight women during her lifetime.
Magee’s work is transforming breast cancer from a deadly disease into one that is survivable and manageable, no matter a woman’s age at the time of diagnosis. Magee is designed to meet the many challenges of breast cancer–prevention, detection, treatment and the advancement of breast cancer research. With some of the highest breast cancer early detection and survival rates in the nation, Magee is a premier facility for any woman facing the life-threatening diagnosis of cancer.
At Magee, women have the opportunity to meet with a team of specialists in one location. Through collaborative efforts of the hospital and Magee-Womens Research Institute, we can ensure the success of this program. This multidisciplinary approach is just one of many innovative research developments happening at Magee that will impact the treatment of our breast cancer patients in the years to come.
