President’s Corner: 2013 Conference Awardees Announced

Posted By on July 15th, 2013 at 8:23 am | 33 comments.


This October, The PA Breast Cancer Coalition will honor four awardees who have changed the face of breast cancer in Pennsylvania and beyond.  We are delighted to announce the 20th Anniversary Conference Awardees: Dr. Dennis Slamon, Mindy Gray, Jeanne Schmedlen and the Westmoreland Walks Board of Directors.  Together, they have saved thousands of lives, inspired many others and raised breast cancer awareness across the country.

Potamkin Prize for Breast Cancer Research

Dr. Dennis Slamon, world-renowned for discovering the ground-breaking treatment known as Herceptin, has devoted his life to finding a cure for cancer.  For that dedication and the profound impact he has had on women in PA, and indeed, worldwide, the PBCC has chosen Dr. Slamon as the 2013 Potamkin Prize awardee.  A Pennsylvania native, Slamon’s clinical research of the HER-2 gene changed what was once a one of the worst breast cancer prognosis into one of the most hopeful.  We will be thrilled to award him our Potamkin Prize for Breast Cancer research at our 2013 Conference on October 15th in Harrisburg.

Look for profiles of our awardees in future editions of PinkLink!
