“The PA Breast Cancer Coalition has a tremendous impact on the cancer community. Through numerous meetings, which inform about new therapies and provide emotional support, the Coalition helps cancer patients fight the disease. The Coalition tells each and every person affected by the cancer: 'We are with You.' While designing and performing experiments in my laboratory, I feel that I am also saying in unison, 'I am with You.'”

Marius Sudol, Ph.D.
Geisinger Health System
 

“We are thrilled to receive funding from the PBCC's Income Tax Check-Off grants. This project will help improve understanding of who is at highest risk for breast cancer. If we can better identify these individuals, we can intervene earlier with the hope of preventing cancer.”

Susan M. Domchek, M.D
University of Pennsylvania
 

“This program remains one of the few places where investigators can receive support for new ideas. It can also support young scientists as they work to build their careers in this very competitive field. Pennsylvania residents should be proud of what they can accomplish through this simple act.”

Michael Verderame, Ph.D.
Penn State College of Medicine
 

“The PBCC’s Income Tax Check-Off gives young investigators a chance to prove themselves before they have a track record in women’s cancers and also gives more mature investigators the chance to garner proof of principle data on ideas that are 'outside the box' of the traditional ideas about women’s cancer. It's important that both types of investigators be funded for innovative research ideas and this grant mechanism accomplishes that goal.”

Jean Latimer, Ph.D.
