Team ASG Going the Distance for Breast Cancer.

Avon Breast Cancer Crusade

The Avon Breast Cancer Crusade focuses on care and seeks to help across the continuum of breast cancer – not only helping those who are at risk or diagnosed with the disease today, but also research into finding better treatments for tomorrow.

The Walk to End Breast Cancer

Dr. mile Chaplow and Dr. Rhonda SchulmanWe all know that there’s strength in numbers, so it’s with great strength that ASG’s Dr. Emilie Chaplow and Dr. Rhonda Schulman will work and walk toward putting an end to the suffering caused by breast cancer.

“We each have our reasons for participating – whether it’s a personal fight with breast cancer, the struggle or loss of a loved one, or a deep commitment to the cause. We’ve each made a big commitment. We’ll spend the next few months training to prepare for a walk of up to a marathon and a half. Each team member is required to raise at least $1,800 in donations. But because we’re in this together, we know that, with your help, we can do it.”

Please join us in helping Dr. Schulman and Dr. Chaplow fight breast cancer. From September 9-10, our doctors will be embarking on the 39-mile walk to raise money for breast cancer research and treatment.

About The Avon Breast Cancer Crusade

The Avon Breast Cancer Crusade seeks to improve breast cancer outcomes and reduce disparities in survival rates at the community and national levels. Our strategic grant making reflects: a holistic and place-based approach in high-need areas throughout the United States; a commitment to enabling access to medical advances and support services for breast cancer patients, particularly those from vulnerable populations; and a commitment to investing in research on the prevention, diagnostics, and treatment of breast cancer.

Launched in 2000, the AVONCares Program at CancerCare has reached medically underserved breast cancer patients living in 96% of all U.S. counties, providing more than 85,000 women and men with financial assistance to help access care. All clients assisted are introduced to CancerCare’s other free services, including counseling, education and referrals to key resources.

Since 2001, Avon has made more than 70 grants totaling more than $12 million to nutrition programs across the country that have provided nutrition counseling, education, grocery services and millions of home-delivered meals to women fighting breast cancer and their dependents. Hunger and malnutrition contribute to medical complications, repeat hospitalizations, and higher mortality rates for the critically ill and these important nutrition services play a significant role in recovery and prevention.
