Placer Breast Cancer Endowment
The Placer Breast Cancer Endowment, formed in July 2005, includes breast cancer survivors and community activists committed to raising $1.5 million to fully fund a Breast Cancer Endowed Chair at the UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center. The Endowment will allow UC Davis Comprehensive Center to recruit established researchers, build laboratory space, and continue clinical trials programs offering patients access to the latest treatments with the ultimate goal, as set by the National Cancer Institute Director John E. Niederhuber, M.D. - to eliminate the suffering and death due to cancer by 2015.
In addition to raising funds for an Endowed Chair, the group also works to raise awareness about breast health issues including early detection and resource availability in the South Placer area. "The Placer Breast Cancer Endowment Fund is a 501-C-3 nonprofit organization, and contributions to the fund are tax deductible to the extent allowable by law".
