The John C. Lincoln Breast Health and Research Center in Phoenix is partnering with research groups to find a cure for breast cancer and with community organizations to provide a range of support for women.

One example is our participation in the Biomarker Translation Test, or BT Test, an innovative blood test that detects and measures levels of key biomarkers (proteins in the blood) associated with breast cancer. The test accurately diagnoses breast cancer in its early stages, when life-saving treatment is most effective.

The Arizona Breast Cancer Resource Guide (ABCRG)

The ABCRG provides quality and comprehensive resources to empower, encourage, and educate patients and co-survivors through the journey of breast cancer by giving choices where and when it matters most.

The John C. Lincoln Health Foundation was one of seven organizations across America funded by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to support breast cancer awareness in young women (<45 years of age) and to change the way young breast cancer survivors, their families and caregivers are supported through community resources. The cooperative agreement funding helps to reduce disease risk and to improve overall health, wellness, and quality of life. Its further goal is to increase awareness among both the medical community and the general public about the unique issues young women face when diagnosed with breast cancer. This education and outreach initiative encompasses the state of Arizona in its entirety.

Translational Genomics Research Institute

This nonprofit organization, known also as TGen, conducts groundbreaking research focused on unraveling the genetic components of common and complex diseases. Our partnership will greatly accelerate breast cancer research at TGen. Patients will be able to donate tissue to research, an opportunity unavailable at most hospitals.

Buddy Check 12

The partnership between Channel 12, John C. Lincoln, Fry's Food Stores and Susan G. Komen for the Cure encourages women to do their monthly breast self-exams.

Through this relationship, more women are learning about the importance of monthly breast self-exams. Early detection saves lives, and early detection starts with annual mammogram screenings and monthly self-exams.

Susan G. Komen for the Cure

www.komenphoenix.org

Susan G. Komen for the Cure is the world's largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists who work together to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care and fund research.

This global leader in breast cancer support has given our center a $24,000 annual grant to provide free mammogram and biopsy services to patients who either don't have insurance or are underinsured. If a woman loses her job and her health insurance, she'll receive financial assistance for screening and interventional services. Thanks to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, our center can help women in need.
