YOU can help find a cure for breast cancer! Look for the PA Breast Cancer Coalition’s Breast Cancer Research Initiative line (Line 32) on your state income tax form, choose code “A” and donate your refund for breast cancer research.
Every penny contributed goes directly to PA breast and cervical cancer researchers. By donating, you join the thousands of Pennsylvania taxpayers, Grassroots Partners and private donors who have contributed more than $4.1 million for Pennsylvania-based cancer research.
