The Engineering and Engineering Services team at Qualtrics is funding Dr. Judy Garber during 5 For The Fight Month, joining as ONE TEAM in the fight against cancer in a friendly fundraising competition between departments. Our goal is to raise $5000 in honor or memory of who those we love with cancer.
Dr. Judy Garber, Dana Farber Cancer Institute
Some families have more breast cancer than others. We know specific genes that confer a remarkable risk. How can we minimize surgery, target our therapies and transform the experience of chemotherapy to help family members avoid cancer altogether?
I helped originate one of the first cancer risk and prevention clinics, which recruits patients and families with hereditary and familial breast cancer, evaluates them for mutations in cancer predisposition genes, and then enrolls patients in ongoing follow-up and risk-reduction studies.
