The PBCC kicked off our annual Refunds for Breast and Cervical Cancer Research campaign at Philadelphia’s City Hall on February 13th. Councilman Dennis O’Brien joined PBCC President Pat Halpin-Murphy to recognize the 2012 Refunds for Research awardees from Philadelphia – University of Pennsylvania’s Andy Minn, M.D., Ph.D and Takemi Tanaka, Ph.D. of Thomas Jefferson University. Dr. Minn and Dr. Tanaka were each honored with $50,000 grants for their respective research endeavors.
The PBCC’s Refunds for Research campaign encourages Pennsylvania taxpayers to donate all or part of their state income tax refund to support breast cancer research happening right here in the state. Every penny donated through the program goes to fund grants to researchers. Share the video below with your friends and family to raise awareness about this campaign and help us reach a goal of $3 million for research this year!
