Date:10/8/2007

Coincides With National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center (SKCC) has formed an alliance with Sparhawk Corporation to raise funds through a Sparhawk e-Fundraising Mall (http://skcc.org/shop).

Through this new alliance, supporters of SKCC can help raise funds for cancer research by initiating their online shopping at http://skcc.org/shop.

"Funding from the eMall helps our researchers convert research findings into clinically relevant therapies, an expensive process. We are working to launch six new clinical therapies over the next 18 months, starting with breast cancer."
