Please join us on July 21 for a golf tournament, raffle and auction with proceeds benefiting the ESSCO-MGH Breast Cancer Research Fund.
The ESSCO-MGH Breast Cancer Research Fund was established in 1994 by Albert Cohen shortly after his daughter, Lynn, was diagnosed with breast cancer. Cohen, then-CEO of Electronic Space Systems Corporation (ESSCO), met with researchers and physicians at the MGH and learned that promising research is not often funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), because of its risky and unproven nature. However, it is precisely this type of innovation that could eventually lead to a cure. So Cohen established the ESSCO-MGH Breast Cancer Research Fund as an endowment to provide seed money for these types of novel research programs.
Today, the Fund has grown to $5 million, and is able to support innovative breast cancer research programs, in perpetuity, under the direction of the talented Dr. Kenneth K. Tanabe at MGH.
