EIF'S Women's Cancer Programs


EIF’s Women’s Cancer Program focuses on two distinct cancer research areas: one to develop an early detection blood test for breast cancer and the other to fast-track more effective, less toxic treatments for women’s cancers.

What Do we do?

With the support of generous corporate and individual donors, EIF operates a range of cancer fundraisers to support EIF’s Women’s Cancer Programs and the initiatives that are under it:  Annually, EIF runs three of the largest single-day women’s cancer fundraisers in the country:

Lee National Denim Day
EIF Revlon Run/Walk For Women (LA & New York)
An Unforgettable Evening

Where does the money go?


EIF’s Women’s Cancer Programs grants supported two distinct breast cancer research projects: one to fast-track more effective, less toxic treatments and increase patient access to some of the most significant clinical trials in the nation; and the other is a multi-year effort led by world-class scientists to develop a blood test for earlier detection of breast cancer when survival rates are the highest.
