Today: Glamour helps to recruit an Army of Women for breast cancer research
Today, Glamour Magazine joins forces with the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation’s Love/Avon Army of Women to host a PSA video contest to help recruit one million women volunteers for breast cancer research.
Film students were asked to create Public Service Announcements for the “Army of Women” cause. The Army of Women’s goal is to eliminate breast cancer by identifying what causes this disease and stopping it before it starts. This unique initiative teams scientists with women who may be interested in participating in breast cancer research projects– healthy women as well as breast cancer survivors. So far, more than 305,000 women have signed up since the Army launched last October.
We encourage your readers to vote for their favorite PSA at
Voting starts today (Friday, September 25), ending Sunday October, 4, and the winner will be announced on October 5th. Your vote will help the organization pick the video that will motivate millions of women to take the next step and sign up to join the Army of Women.
