UC Hosts Cancer Research Fund-Raiser

Published September 2005

On Sept. 14, the UC Cancer Center will host "My Mother, My Daughter, Myself," a luncheon to generate critical funding for research and technology to make early detection, treatment and an eventual cure for breast cancer possible.

Lillie Shockney, education and outreach director for Johns Hopkins Breast Center and a breast cancer survivor herself, will share inspiring patient stories at the sixth annual event.

UC's comprehensive cancer diagnosis, treatment and care center is home to one of only two high-risk breast cancer clinics in the Tristate offering early detection services, surveillance, access to education and inclusion in clinical trials. The clinic is the only facility in the Tristate to offer ductal lavage, a minimally invasive method of detecting abnormal cells.

And the UC Cancer Center continues to grow. It recently welcomed two new breast cancer specialists, Jennifer Manders, MD, a surgical oncologist, and Ruth Lavigne, MD, a radiation oncologist.

Last year, more than 700 people attended the luncheon, which raised $140,000 to support breast cancer research. Corporate tables ($1,500) and individual tickets ($100) are available by calling (513) 558-8624.
