Breast and Ovarian Cancer Annual Run/ Walk Hosted By: American Friends of Rabin Medical Center.
Breast and ovarian cancers are the most common cancers afflicting women in the United States and Israel. Through- out their lifetimes, one in seven women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and over 22,000 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer annually.
Proceeds from this event benefit the BRCA Multidisci- plinary Clinic to serve women at high risk of breast and ovarian cancer at Rabin Medical Center’s Davidoff Cancer Center—a world class facility whose sole focus is on the treatment and prevention of cancer. The SCHLEP also supports a nutritional intervention study to determine if nutrients in cruciferous vegetables can decrease breast cancer in BRCA mutation carriers and thus help save the lives of this high-risk population.
American Friends of Rabin Medical Center is working with the Rabin Medical Center and its U.S. affiliates to eradicate this devastating disease. Your support is vital to their efforts.
