Proof: Research Saves Lives

At The Mary Kay Foundation, we’re passionate about cancer research.

Last year alone, we awarded $1 million in grants to select doctors and medical scientists focusing on curing cancers that affect women. Since 1996, we’ve given more than $20 million to support cancer research.

This week, we’re showing you what researchers have learned thanks to organizations like The Mary Kay Foundation. Our data is courtesy of the American Association for Cancer Research.
