Problem

The body’s immune system needs help in warding off recurrences of breast cancer.

The Gift

Your gift will support the research of our physicians and scientists who continue to pioneer new medical treatments in breast cancer research such as immunotherapy, including vaccines and antibodies. Memorial Sloan-Kettering’s vaccine studies are designed to identify the best way to harness the body’s immune system to ward off recurrences. Our doctors have tested several monoclonal antibodies. They have so far demonstrated that this approach can be effective for treating advanced breast cancer. They will continue to investigate antibodies and test new drugs and drug combinations that build on the successes seen with the antibodies.
