Save lives! End the lawsuit so preparations for a Phase III Clinical Trial of the GP2 Breast Cancer Vaccine can begin with an IND.

Please help! Many of us have been excited about the research results on breast cancer vaccines presented by MD Anderson. One such vaccine for Her2+ patients called GP2 has some truly amazing results.
Unfortunately, The Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine (HJF) has filed a lawsuit against the vaccine developer, Norwell Inc. This lawsuit had been appealed to the federal level. While women are waiting and praying against a recurrence, HJF is adding further potentional delays with their recent appeal to the Fourth Circuit Court (case #14-1580).
This vaccine has the potential to help decrease recurrence in Ovarian Cancer as well. But, we have to get research moving forward to save lives.
Please help us urge them to end the lawsuit!
