Welcome to Spit for the Cure!



 We believe research is the key to fighting breast cancer. Breast cancer researchers at UAMS are hoping to answer some important questions. We want to learn why one individual is affected by breast cancer but another one is not. Or why two women with the same disease respond differently to the same treatment. What inherited factors contribute to the disease? What environmental factors contribute to breast cancer? How do inherited and environmental factors interact to cause the disease? It may seem that these questions would be addressed on an individual basis but, in reality, we need large groups of women to participate to address these questions. So this could be your chance to participate in the fight – by joining the Spit for the Cure Cohort.
