PA Breast Cancer Coalition Launches Income Tax Refund Campaign

Donations Help Fund Breast and Cervical Cancer Research

EPHRATA, Pa., Feb. 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition has launched its annual Income Tax Check-Off for Breast and Cervical Research campaign to fund PA researchers. By simply checking YES on line 35 of the PA 40 tax form, any taxpayer can donate all or part of their state income tax refund to breast and cervical cancer research. Every penny contributed goes directly to PA breast and cervical cancer researchers.  By donating the taxpayer will join the thousands of Pennsylvania tax filers who have contributed over $2.5 million for Pennsylvania-based cancer research.

"Thousands of checkmarks made by Pennsylvania residents have raised over $2.5 million for breast cancer research. The generosity of the people of this state for the program has been overwhelming," said Pat Halpin-Murphy, President and Founder of the PBCC.  "This simple and effective program, and the support of so many, reinforces our commitment to finding a cure now ... so our daughters won't have to. © "

The PBCC worked with the state legislature to enact the Income Tax Check-Off for Breast & Cervical Cancer Research which has since become one of the most popular refund donation options in Pennsylvania.  The funds raised through this initiative support the outstanding breast and cervical cancer researchers in Pennsylvania.  

The PA Breast Cancer Coalition represents, supports and serves breast cancer survivors and their families in Pennsylvania through educational programming, legislative advocacy and breast cancer research grants.  For more information, visit or contact Sarah Lightman, Director of Communications, at 1-800-377-8828 x107 or
