Breast cancer knows no boundaries – be it age, gender, socio-economic status or geographic location. In the U.S. alone, an estimated 40,000 women and more than 400 men will die from breast cancer each year.
With more than $2.5 billion invested in the fight against breast cancer, Komen is leading the global movement against this terrible disease, working in communities across the globe to save lives and end breast cancer forever.
“We are so pleased to have the commitment of Pathway Genomics and Relativity Media who are bringing awareness to the needs of breast cancer patients and the important work Komen is doing to address those needs in southern California and around the world,” said Komen President and CEO Judith Salerno, M.D., M.S."
PATHWAY GENOMICS is on a mission to make affordable hereditary breast cancer testing available to all regardless of income, race or geographic location. To enhance the accessibility of this important genetic test, Pathway Genomics has developed the BRCA One for OneTM program – for every qualified BRCAtrue test ordered, one test is donated to a person in need through patient advocacy organizations, up to $10 million of free testing. ONE FOR ONE means that for each BRCA TRUE TEST purchased, Pathway Genomics will give one away making hereditary breast cancer testing is available to all.
“Pathway’s mission is to ensure that people in need receive genetic testing regardless of their economic or insurance status,” said Jim Plante, Pathway Genomics’ founder and CEO. “Offering the industry’s best BRCA genetic test and making it accessible to a wide range of people is a vital objective in our mission.”
To date, no other affordable breast cancer genetic testing option exists. Pathway Genomics is Pathway for the People. For more info visit pathway.com/brcatrue.
