Pat HeadshotFor breast cancer survivors and our families, hope plays a crucial role in navigating the diagnosis and what comes next. Many of us wouldn’t be where we are today without the discoveries of breast cancer researchers working to provide that hope in labs across Pennsylvania. We look to them for new treatments and, ultimately, a cure.

That is why the PA Breast Cancer Coalition created Refunds for Breast Cancer Research. It allows Pennsylvania residents to donate all or part of their state income tax refunds directly to scientists within our state. The average donation is $8, and together we have raised more than $3 million to fund basic research that leads to breakthroughs of the future.

Many of you have asked, “What if I don’t receive a state income tax refund?” There’s still a chance for you to support Pennsylvania’s breast cancer researchers.
