The Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition Announces Event at the University of Pennsylvania Hospital to Celebrate the 2008 Income Tax Check-Off Campaign
Date:3/19/2008

PHILADELPHIA, March 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition (PBCC) will hold a press conference on Monday, March 24 at 10:30am at the University of Pennsylvania in the Flyers-76ers Surgery Theatre on the main floor of One Ravdin Pavilion, 34th and Spruce Streets, to publicize this year's Income Tax Check-Off for Breast and Cervical Cancer Research campaign and to congratulate the eight researchers who have been selected to receive research grants.

Scheduled to speak at the event are: Pat Halpin-Murphy, President and Founder, PBCC; John H. Glick, M.D., PBCC Board of Directors, VP and Associate Dean for Resource Development, Abramson Family Cancer Research Institute; Barry Cooperman, Ph.D., 2008 Grant Recipient, University of Pennsylvania; and Ed Mahlman, Chief Marketing Officer of Philadelphia Newspapers.

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 PBCC 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. To date, 49 research grants have been awarded.

PBCC President and 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."

Eight researchers have been selected to receive grants in 2008. They are: Barry Cooperman, Ph.D., University of Pennsylvania; Raghbir Athwal, Ph.D., Temple University; Judy Quong, Ph.D., Thomas Jefferson University; Andrew Qu
