  • Do Good Initiative: Share Your Insights!

    As part of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Sanofi has launched a "Do Good" initiative where treatment insights will be gathered from healthcare providers through a brief survey. Once completed by a breast cancer treating professional, a $50 donation will be made by Sanofi to a patient advocacy group that supports underserved metastatic breast cancer patients. To greater the impact, Sanofi will match the donation made on behalf of the professional, which we believe will deliver more Good & further help underserved breast cancer patients.
