Breast cancer affects one in eight women in the United States who live to be 80 years old. The mortality rate is nearly nineteen percent.

We will need to finally figure out the anatomy of the breast ducts and develop reliable ways to image and monitor them -- which is something Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation is committed to doing. If DCIS is really just like rust in the pipes, maybe the next step is to figure out how to squirt something like Drano down the duct and clean them out!
