The Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition Announces 2008 Breast Cancer Income Tax Check-Off Grant Recipients
Date:2/7/2008

Event at Penn State Hershey to Launch 2008 Income Tax Check-Off Campaign

HERSHEY, Pa., Feb. 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Thousands of Pennsylvania taxpayers who participate in the state's Income Tax Check-Off for Breast and Cervical Cancer Research deserve recognition for the thousands of dollars in grants that will be awarded to Pennsylvania-based researchers this year. On Monday, February 11 at 9:30 a.m., the Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition will be holding a press conference to kick-off the 2008 Income Tax Check-Off campaign at Penn State Hershey in the University Conference Center to honor researchers selected to receive grants in 2008.

The Income Tax Check-Off for Breast and Cervical Cancer Research has become the most popular refund donation option in Pennsylvania since its inception in 1997, when the Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition worked with the state legislature to enact the program. Every penny of the over $2 million that has been raised through the initiative goes directly to fund breast and cervical cancer research conducted by Pennsylvania researchers. Pennsylvanians are reminded to check line 35 on the PA 40 tax form to donate their state tax refund to help make a difference.

PBCC President & Founder, Pat Halpin-Murphy, said, "The overwhelming response to this initiative demonstrates just how important finding a cure for breast and cervical cancer is to the people of Pennsylvania. It is also a testament to the exceptional researchers that we have right here in our state."

Halpin-Murphy chairs the PA Cancer Control, Prevention and Research Advisory Board's Income Tax Check-Off Committee, which recommends how the refund donations should be distributed. To date, 49 research grants have been awarded.

8 researchers have been selected to receive grants in 2008. They are: David Feith, Ph.D., Pennsylvania State University Milton S. Hershey Medical Center; Judith Weisz, MB, BChir, Pennsylvania State
