Find out how you can help take the scare out of breast cancer!

According to Cancer.org, in 2015, they estimate that:

About 231,840 new cases of invasive breast cancer

About 62,290 new cases of carcinoma in situ (CIS) of the breast will be found (CIS is non-invasive and is the earliest form of breast cancer).

About 40,290 deaths from breast cancer

Breast cancer is a health crisis in this nation. We are losing too many mothers, sisters, daughters and friends to breast cancer.

Part of the issue is a lack of new treatments, and, or the way we currently treat the disease. Looking at breast cancer through another lens, say from bio-entrepreneurs who are comprised of doctors and researchers proactively working on new treatments, better treatment strategies for people with breast cancer could save thousands of women

In order for new treatments and technologies to advance to the clinical trial phase and then to FDA approval, funds are required to bridge the #ValleyOfDeath, a funding bottleneck that has historically constrained progress. This is where Sound Affects comes in. After scrupulously vetting our bio-entrepreneurs who work with us, we crowdfund to get them out of the bottleneck and out of the valley of death so that their great ideas for combating cancer may have a chance to help those who need it.

In honor of breast cancer awareness month, our crowdfunding campaign is centered on “Taking the Scare out of Breast Cancer.”

Please watch Dr. Oscar Bronson talk about his organization, MetStat, and find out more about what they’re doing to revolutionize the way cancer is treated. Please contribute here.
