Thank you for your part in helping to cure breast cancer!

My name is Susan Miller. I’m under 40, an Arlington-based mom of four young children, a wife, an executive, and also a Stage 3 Triple Negative Breast Cancer patient. I am currently being treated for breast cancer at Georgetown Lombardi, Washington, D.C.’s only comprehensive cancer center.

As you can imagine, it’s pretty scary to find out you have cancer. Unfortunately, about 1.7 million other Americans will be diagnosed with cancer this year. 40% of Americans will be diagnosed in their lifetime and 25% will die from it.

My family is very actively involved in supporting cancer research because we know that research is not only helping me, but could help save the lives of so many others that will be diagnosed with cancer this year.

At Georgetown Lombardi, The Nina Hyde Center for Breast Cancer Research is conducting groundbreaking research in hopes of improving treatments for patients like myself, and one day, discovering a cure. This innovation is happening locally, right at Georgetown!

As someone who is benefiting from clinical research performed at Georgetown Lombardi, I know that the most promising research can’t even begin without philanthropic support. My family and I have personally pledged to support research at Georgetown Lombardi, but we know that’s not enough. WE NEED YOUR HELP!

My four kids organized a pink lemonade stand this past summer to raise funds for research at Georgetown Lombardi, and in only 90 minutes, they raised $1,000. Just imagine what we can all do together! 

Can’t donate right now? Then help me reach my goal by sharing this page with your social media network. Or, send an email to friends you think might be interested in contributing and include a link to my page. EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS! Thanks so much for your support and generosity!


Georgetown Lombardi was one of the first National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer centers in the country and remains the only such center in the greater D.C. area. NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers like Georgetown Lombardi attract the best and the brightest doctors, nurses, scientists, and researchers.  And when you attract the best, you do the best work. With the help of its supporters, Georgetown Lombardi continually develops exciting new technologies for cancer care, attracts the greatest talent in the field of cancer, and helps patients live longer with a higher quality of life.

The Nina Hyde Center for Breast Cancer Research (Nina Hyde Center) at Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center (Georgetown Lombardi) was established in 1989 through philanthropic support from designer Ralph Lauren and late Washington Post Company president, Katharine Graham. What began with a donation at a cocktail party in 1988 from Mr. Lauren eventually grew to become one of the world’s largest and most respected breast cancer research centers, and the only National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated comprehensive cancer center in the Washington, DC metro area. The Nina Hyde Center is now home to over 70 scientists and physicians who study breast cancer with an aim to uncover the biological basis of the complex disease and work towards its prevention and cure.
