About the Placer Breast Cancer Endowment
The Placer Breast Cancer Endowment, formed in July 2005, includes breast cancer survivors and community activists committed to fully funding the Breast Cancer Endowed Chair at the UC Davis Cancer Center. The members have pledged to raise $1.5 million during a five-year campaign. The endowed chair will allow UC Davis to recruit established researchers, build laboratory space, and continue clinical trials programs offering patients access to the latest treatments with the ultimate goal, as set by the National Cancer Institute Director John E. Niederhuber, M.D. - to eliminate the suffering and death due to cancer by 2015.

The group was also formed to raise awareness about breast health issues including early detection and resource availability in the South Placer area. “The Placer Breast Cancer Endowment Fund is a 501-C-3 nonprofit organization, and contributions to the fund are tax deductible to the extent allowable by law”.
