Your mom, sister, friend might prefer a donation in their name to a conventional gift. I can’t say enough that many will benefit not just women and not just men and women suffering breast cancer. The drugs discovered in the process of searching for a cure are being used to treat a variety of things, the most amazing to me as a microbiologist is the German drug for breast cancer treatment which saved a 12 year old with a Naegleria infection. This is a brain eating parasite that devours the brain. After receiving the drug(flown over from Germany) the girl responded and is back in school becoming the third American survivor. There is a very small window for treatment and luckily the drug researchers had published the anti-parasitic effects of their drug which the American doctor had read.
