Our Projects

With approximately $180K raised in the past 4 years, The Karen Louisa has financially kick started and made possible some invaluable advanced breast cancer research and education projects. In fact – because of our funding two of our main research projects were able to actually commence their projects & prove how critical their work was. Thus, both becoming successful benefactors of major funding grants enabling them to carry on their essential work.

This included the creation of video content that documented experiences of patients’, an online awareness campaign through their website, advocacy of better access to medication and more.
