We all know that there's strength in numbers, so it’s with great strength that we’ll work and walk toward putting an end to the suffering caused by breast cancer. We each have our reasons for participating - - whether it’s a personal fight with breast cancer, the struggle or loss of a loved one, or a deep commitment to the cause.

We've each made a big commitment. We’ll spend the next few months training to prepare for a walk of up to a marathon and a half. Each team member is required to raise at least $1,800 in donations. But because we're in this together, we know that, with your help, we can do it.

Please support our team.Please check back here frequently to see how we're doing, and thanks in advance for your support! <Team AACSN>

Legacy Girls Study

Cancer Prevention Institute of California is currently recruiting daughters ages 6-13 to participate in a 5 year study aimed to look at the genetic and environmental influences on breast cancer. This is a prevention study that aims to follow girls starting from a young age and they need study participants!!!!   They are trying to recruit 100 daughters in the bay area as apart of a national cohort study where the researchers are aiming to follow girls throughout all stages of the pubescent and pre-pubescent life. They focus mainly on genetic, lifestyle, and environmental factors that may play a role in why younger and younger women are developing breast cancer. 

Some details: If mother and daughter agree to participate, there will be a female interviewer that will come to their home and 1) she will ask daughter general questions about habits and exercise 2) she will measure their waist, hips, height, weight, and foot size 3) If willing, she will collect a urine and small blood sample. Both mother and daughter will receive gift cards to fun places like TARGET on each visit as an appreciation for your contribution to the study.  And of course- everything is strictly confidential.

Adam's Baton Fund
AACSN learned the passing of a young man named Adam Chang in early 2010. We were deeply touched when we read Adam’s eulogy written by his mother Maria Chen. It moved us so much that the AACSN board decided they wanted 
to start the Adam’s Baton Fund. AACSN wishes  this fund will help patients who want to leave a legacy through funds we set aside to make their last wishes come to true. To contact us on this, please email.
