Yesterday evening Carol Margaret Tetlow gave a talk about her books to the Ainderby Steeple and District branch of the Women’s Institute. What a lovely group of ladies! There might only have been about 25 present but they were a warm and receptive audience. She sold several copies of her novels and from each sale will be donating 25% to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (www.bcrfcure.org). Together with her fee for attending, she raised £40, which was brilliant.
About the Breast Cancer Research Foundation:
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is a nonprofit organization committed to achieving prevention and a cure for breast cancer. They provide critical funding for cancer research worldwide to fuel advances in tumor biology, genetics, prevention, treatment, metastasis and survivorship.
Since the founding in 1993 by Evelyn H. Lauder, BCRF has raised more than half a billion dollars for lifesaving research. Through a unique and streamlined grants program, they seek out the brightest minds in science and medicine and give them the necessary resources to pursue their best ideas. As a result, researchers are able to make discoveries and design new approaches to address all aspects of breast cancer—and do so in record time.
In 2015-2016, BCRF will award $48.5 million in annual grants to over 240 scientists from top universities and medical institutions around the globe. In addition, $5.4 million has been committed to the international Founder’s Fund project focused on metastasis. Every hour of research they fund improves outcomes and saves lives. But they still have more to do.
The thousands of women and men suffering from breast cancer today depend on the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. No institution can conquer this disease alone. Together, we can.
