Want to be a part of our fight to end breast cancer? Join the PA Breast Cancer Coalition as we award a $50,000 breast cancer research grant to Dr. Edward Gunther on Thursday, February 25 at 9:30am at Penn State Hershey Medical Center. Dr. Gunther is one of four winners in our 2016 Breast Cancer Research Grants Initiative. He plans to focus on the cause of breast cancer by investigating cells that go on to cause breast cancer. Dr. Gunther and his team hope their studies will clarify whether this special subset of breast cells accumulates over time. If so, the cells could become an important target for breast cancer prevention.
Working toward a cure is a goal YOU can help us achieve every year around this time. How? All Pennsylvania residents have a chance to provide hope for our future during tax season. Just choose code “A” on line 32 of the PA-40 state income tax form and every penny will go directly to innovative research going on right here in Pennsylvania. Thanks to those donations, we have awarded more than $3 million in grants to date!
We hope to see you Thursday, February 25 in Hershey! Click here to RSVP.
