Lorei's Story

In April, I felt a lump. I almost cancelled my appointment because my dad and stepmom were in town, but they told me, "Absolutely not!" So my stepmom and I went, and I wasn't worried — after all I had no family history of breast cancer, I don't smoke and rarely drink. Oh, and I'm just 33 years old.

Change The Way We Fight Cancer
Genetic changes that drive tumors are highly variable, and a one-size-fits-all approach is clearly not effective. Instead of broad-brush therapies that destroy both cancerous and healthy cells, research is now focused on the unique and complex nature of each individual cancer. Already, information gleaned through genome sequencing is helping doctors reclassify tumors based on their genetic makeup, rather than their location in the body. Dr. Arul Chinnaiyan and his research team at the University of Michigan are at the forefront of this groundbreaking research. Donations through this Gift That Gives More™ go directly to the advancement of this unique and innovative research in the battle against cancer.
