Every time I walk into the laboratory of a breast cancer researcher, I am inspired. Their passion to find a cure for this disease is what drives them every day. On this Tax Day, we hope that you will join us in taking action on their behalf through the PA Breast Cancer Coalition’s Refunds for Breast Cancer Research program.

We hope you will join us and make the commitment to take action. Donate your state income tax refund on Line 32 to Refunds for Research and help us find a cure for breast cancer now… so our daughters won’t have to.

This past week, the PBCC visited the Abramson Cancer Family Research Institute at the University of Pennsylvania to award Dr. Lewis Chodosh with a $50,000 grant for his excellent work studying breast cancer recurrence. With continued support, his discoveries may someday be able to prevent breast cancer from coming back years later.
