Help fund research to prevent osteoporosis in women with breast cancer.
Breast cancer can adversely affect woman's bones. Cancer treatment in particular can take a toll on bones, weakening them and putting women at a high risk for fractures. These women develop signs of osteoporosis which includes bone loss and bone pain.
Dr. Catherine Van Poznak, from the University of Michigan's Comprehensive Cancer Center, is studying ways to diagnose, treat and prevent bone loss and discomfort among women diagnosed with breast cancer. She is also studying ways to identify breast cancers that are more likely to spread to the bone. She is in need of more funds to continue this important research.
"I have been drawn to the bone field due to the clinical need to better manage bone integrity in my patient population. My clinical and translational research is targeted to improve cancer care." - Dr. Van Poznak
