The words breast cancer spark fear in most women and with good reason. One in eight women in the U.S. will get breast cancer in their lifetime.

However that is not the case in the most aggressive forms of the disease and that has researchers at Notre Dame joining forces with scientists in Africa where breast cancer is growing at an alarming rate. Dr. Sharon Stack, Director of the Harper Cancer Research Institute at the University of Notre Dame received a grant from the Walther Cancer Foundation for a joint study with Moi University in Kenya, allowing researchers to student the most aggressive and deadly forms of breast cancer.
