THREE GOALS OF DOING MEDICAL RESEARCH IN BREAST CANCER ACROSS COUNTRIES
We believe there are three goals in doing the kinds of medical research we do with IBCRF.
The first is finding better interventions that people can get everywhere.
A second goal is an ethical- humanitarian-moral one: showing people everywhere that we care and making ourselves better people by giving.
A third goal is a medical diplomacy goal—working with people around the world on the common challenges of breast cancer establishes our connectedness as human beings. When we are better connected we are all safer.
