Thank you for joining us for ESSCO-MGH Cards for a Cure 21st Annual Benefit, a fabulous casino night and live auction on Thursday, October 27, 2016. We look forward to welcoming you again on October 26, 2017 at the Pine Brook Country Club. Please stay tuned for details.
Funds raised through this year’s gala supported the ESSCO-MGH/Slater Family Endowed Chair in Surgical Oncology at the Mass General Cancer Center. Kenneth Tanabe, MD, chief of Surgical Oncology at Mass General, is intended to be the first incumbent of the chair. Over more than a decade of working together, ESSCO-MGH Breast Cancer Research Fund has developed a deep appreciation for Dr. Tanabe’s multifaceted leadership and innovative approach to cancer research.
Unique to our fund, every penny of your donation will go directly to MGH. We do not take a percentage of your contribution for our fundraising, social networking or administrative efforts.
The ESSCO-MGH Breast Cancer Research Fund was established in December 1994 by Albert Cohen, then CEO of Electronic Space Systems Corporation (ESSCO). At that time, Al's 33-year-old-daughter had been diagnosed with breast cancer and treated at Mass General. Al established the fund to support breast cancer research efforts at MGH and speed progress toward a cure. Please click here to donate or contact email@example.com for more information.
