The tireless efforts of Cure Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF), to raise important funds for breast cancer research have not gone unnoticed. The Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center recently bestowed a significant honor to the 501(c) 3 charity to recognize its work and the determination of its leaders.
The world-renowned cancer research and treatment institute acknowledged Andy and Lisa Abramson, co-founders of CBCF, listing their names as a Principal Benefactor of Memorial Sloan-Kettering engraved in the lobby of the Rockefeller Research Laboratories. Also recognized with an engraving was the charity itself, Cure Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.
Under the direction of Mr. Abramson, and his daughter and co-founder Carly, the Clifton, N.J.-based CBCF has raised over $4.5 million since its inception in 2007. The money donated supports the research of Dr. Norton, Deputy Physician-in-Chief for Breast Cancer Programs and the Medical Director of the Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
CBCF’s efforts assist the research of Dr. Larry Norton, who is leading the fight against breast cancer with groundbreaking work that addresses cases when the disease spreads to other parts of the body where it can currently be controlled, but rarely cured. Dr. Norton’s team is dedicated to changing this by focusing our efforts on a revolutionary new concept of cancer that offers many possibilities for new methods of diagnosis, treatment, and even prevention.
CBCF supports a dedicated team of physicians and scientists at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York and New Jersey and their national and international collaborators.
All this work is coordinated by Dr. Norton, CBCF’s scientific advisor. It is based on the discovery that abnormal cell division is only one of the dangerous characteristic of cancer.
