She has already accomplished what most women hope to achieve in their lifetime. Driven by the memory of her sister Faith Basser who lost a battle to ovarian cancer at a young age, 2013 Pink Ribbon Awardee Mindy Gray has created a vision for the future of cancer research. She and her husband, Jon, recently donated $25 million to found the Basser Research Center for BRCA at the University of Pennsylvania’s Abramson Cancer Center. Penn’s Basser Center will focus specifically on research of the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes which can increase the risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer in women who carry them.
We are honored to welcome Mindy to the 2013 PA Breast Cancer Coalition Conference on October 15th at the Hilton Harrisburg. Join us in honoring her many accomplishments and her dedication to finding a cure now… so our daughters won’t have to.
