Donate to Breast Cancer Research, Patient Care and Education
Nearly 300,000 women and men will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. Through generous donations to Northwestern Memorial Foundation, the breast cancer specialists at Northwestern Medicine will be able to advance their exceptional patient clinical care, leading-edge research and clinical trials, and health education programs focused on diagnosis and advanced treatment options. At Northwestern Medicine, we are committed to offering a multidisciplinary approach to breast cancer care that is tailored to the needs of every patient.
Understanding risk factors and early detection are the keys to conquering the threats posed by breast cancer. The leading breast cancer specialists at Northwestern Medicine offer a full array of services, which include advice on self-examinations, disease prevention, cancer screening and diagnosis, as well as management of treatment options, post-treatment healing and a return to full wellness for patients and their families.
Breast cancer specialists recommend women conduct breast exams each month, see a gynecologist each year, undergo a mammogram on an annual basis and maintain a healthy weight and diet, limiting alcohol and cigarettes. If any abnormalities are diagnosed, a patient will be able to discuss a variety of treatment approaches with her healthcare team. From surgeons and medical oncologists to social workers, nutritionists, pathologists and geneticists, Northwestern Medicine’s multidisciplinary breast cancer care team ensures that every patient’s treatment process receives the highest level of personalized attention and support.
