Colleen’s Dream Foundation Gifts $10,000 to The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center to Support Ovarian Cancer Research
Date:10/20/2013

Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) October 20, 2013

In its ongoing effort to support ovarian cancer research, Colleen’s Dream Foundation has gifted $10,000 to The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center for cutting edge ovarian cancer research according to Colleen’s Dream Foundation President Billy Cundiff.

"MD Anderson is at the forefront of cancer research and attracts some of the top talent in the world," says Cundiff. "Partnering with them will allow us to support research that will make an impact on the ovarian cancer landscape."

According to Cundiff, the $10,000 gift will help support research being done by Dr. Zacharias Millward, Ph.D. assistant professor of Cancer Systems Imaging at MD Anderson.

For the past 10 years, Zacharias Millward has been focused on working at the interface of chemistry and biology. Specifically, she’s been interested in how chemistry can be used to study biological systems and solve problems in medicine.

"We are excited to support Dr. Zacharias Millward's cutting edge research," says Cundiff. "Early detection is important to us at Colleen's Dream Foundation and Dr. Zacharias Millward's research is in line with our mission. It is exactly the kind of research Colleen’s Dream Foundation is looking to fund."

Cundiff says the $10,000 will help Zacharias Millward in her research, which utilizes hyperpolarized metabolic imaging agents.

"It's an interesting field of study with great promise," he says.

When asked what "caused" her to become interested in research to find an early detection method for ovarian cancer, her answer was quite simple.
