AND THE WINNER IS . . . CA individuals fight breast cancer on tax form

UC president: Donate to cancer research at tax time

University of California President Janet Napolitano sent the following message to faculty, staff and students today:
Dear colleagues:
As you prepare to file your State taxes this year, I wanted to let you know about an important opportunity to help UC researchers and others around California in the fight against cancer.

Toward the end of California Tax form 540, there is a section in which you can donate to two very highly regarded cancer programs that are administered by the University of California.

(I had a terrible time finding the rest of this material yesterday, and I can't find it again today to give you a source. I learned of the program thru an ad.  My apologies if this is too much copied for educational purposes.)

In 2013, the California Breast Cancer Research Program granted over $5 million in research awards that will advance our knowledge about the prevention, detection, treatment and community impact of breast cancer. These awards included grants supported entirely or in part by Californians who contributed to the California Breast Cancer Research Fund on their income tax form. The projects they supported include:
  • Intranasal Drug Delivery for Brain Metastatic Breast Cancer
    Axel Schonthal, University of Southern California
  • Meeting the Self-Care Needs of Latinas after Breast Cancer
    Anna Napoles, University of California, San Francisco and Carmen Ortiz, Circulo de Vida Cancer Support and Resource Center
  • Vitamin D Signals Via a Novel Pathway to Inhibit Metastasis
    Brian Feldman, Stanford University
