Army of Women

Our revolutionary initiative has two key goals:
To recruit one million healthy women of every age and ethnicity, including breast cancer survivors and women at high-risk for the disease, to partner with breast cancer researchers and directly participate in the research that will eradicate breast cancer once and for all.
To challenge the scientific community to expand its current focus to include breast cancer prevention research conducted on healthy women.
"Breast cancer has been around for decades, but it does not have to be our future. We can be the generation that stops breast cancer once and for all by figuring out what causes this disease and how to prevent it!" "Sign up for your sister, mother, daughter, granddaughter, best friend, and the woman you met last week. This is YOUR chance to be part of the research that will end breast cancer."

Welcome to the Love/Avon Army of Women, a revolutionary movement to bring women and researchers together to eradicate breast cancer.
As a proud Army of Women member, you will regularly receive emails from us that announce new research studies as well as other Army of Women activities.
You will need to login into your account in order to sign up for any research studies or participate in our Town Hall.
The Army is dedicated to representing ALL women in research so that the research results will apply to ALL women. This means we need you to help us recruit women of all ages, ethnicities, sizes, and shapes. We need women who have had breast cancer and women who have not. We need African American women, Asian women, white women, Latinas, and lesbians to be involved.
You can do your part to help us spread the word about the Army and reach our goal of one million women by:
Emailing an invitation to your friends and family members to join the Army.

Inviting your church, school, professional organization, social group, or sorority, to join the Army. Email us for more information about group affiliations.
Using our “Share/Send to a Friend” feature to let friends or family members know about information we have on our site that might interest them.
Forward emails you receive from the Army to family members and friends.
