  • Gifts in honor of

    Supporting women's cancer research at Massey has always been important.  The funds raised by Women & Wellness have allowed Massey to transform the fight against cancer and the lives of those affected.  

    Funds generated by Women & Wellness have supported physician-researcher, Charles Geyer, M.D., as he co-authored practice changing, international research on breast cancer that was presented at the 2014 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting in Chicago and published online in the New England Journal of Medicine.

    The research involved a combination of two large, international phase 3 clinical trials, which found that a drug known as exemestane is more effective than tamoxifen at preventing breast cancer recurrence in young women with hormone-sensitive breast cancer, a common type of breast cancer.  This landmark study is the first to demonstrate that taking exemstane while blocking ovarian function reduces cancer recurrence in women with hormone-receptive cancer.  These results provide a new treatment option for premenopausal women formerly available only to postmenopausal women.

    Join us we give women a better chance at wellness today!

    Your tax deductible gift can be made in honor or in memory of anyone who has contributed or been affected by cancer. 

    Give today!
