The Sister Study

 

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we at the Sister Study would like to join our participants and friends of the study to remember those affected by breast cancer. With our ongoing research, we honor those we have lost and those who continue to fight against breast cancer. We are grateful to those of you who participate in research like the Sister Study so we can work together toward solutions. Thank you!
