"Preventing breast cancer is the single most important thing we can do in terms of breast cancer research. Until now, there haven’t been enough truly promising leads. We owe it to all women to build on these findings."

“Dr. Powell and Dr. Benz have come up with an amazing finding that occurs during pregnancy in a subgroup of women. My greatest hope going forward is that all women have an equal chance of being breast cancer free in their lifetime.”
Janice Barlow, RN Executive Director Zero Breast Cancer
“What’s been a very interesting spin-off of the Marin Women’s Study has been finding that some women can actually be protected from breast cancer. We think with this biological clue we can design new and very innovative breast cancer prevention strategies that could be be applied to all women.”
