A SEASON FOR APPRECIATION
Thank you so much for your generosity and past support. As the new year approaches I would like to share some exciting events and some goals for the future.
Each year the Cancer Research Foundation continues to advance its mission to raise funds to support early career cancer scientists and new directions in cancer research with the goal of contributing to “Transformational Events” in the prevention, treatment and cure for cancer. By funding young investigators we hope to help start the careers of tomorrow’s “game changers” in cancer science.
I would particularly like to call your attention to a recent story highlighting the success of our Young Investigator program as it hits its 25th year. You can read the story here. In addition, we are pleased to have just announced our new Young Investigator Award grantees for 2011.
One of our goals this year is to become better connected to our donor community through email. If you are not yet a member of our mailing list, please take a moment to take our short survey and give us your email address. You will be automatically entered in the drawing we will hold on January 16th for a $100 Amazon.com gift card. Take the survey...
Our greatest goal is to continue to support potentially groundbreaking research in cancer science. For more than 60 years the Cancer Research Foundation’s focus on young investigators and novel science has provided a real hope in the fight against cancer. As 2011comes to an end, please help us continue our proud history by making a gift to the Cancer Research Foundation. I can’t tell you how much we appreciate your help.
Best Wishes for a Wonderful Holiday Season and the Happiest of New Years.
