Last Wednesday, the PA Breast Cancer Coalition staff honored breast cancer researcher Dr. Ramin Shiekhattar at The Wistar Institute in Philadelphia with our first $50,000 Refunds for Research grant of 2013 for his outstanding work with genetic mutations and their effects on the disease. Dr. Shiekhattar is one of many researchers right here in Pennsylvania whose breakthroughs could one day save millions of lives. This tax season, as we commemorate 20 years at the PBCC, we challenge you to join our goal of ending breast cancer. We have committed to finding a cure. Will you join us? Donate your state income tax refund to breast cancer research and every penny will help to make that goal a reality.
For a behind-the-scenes look at our tour of Dr. Shiekhattar’s lab, click on the video below.
Look for more from our other 2013 grant recipients in the months to come and please join us March 7th at the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute as we honor Dr. Hannah Rabinowich!
