At our 15th Annual An Unforgettable Evening sponsored by Saks Fifth Avenue, the Women’s Cancer Research Fund presented the Courage Award to Sheryl Crow and the Nat King Cole award to Cindi Leive.

This incredible evening featured a special performance by Rihanna, and updates of astonishing research strides by world-class scientists including three Nobel laureates, all funded by our donors. Beneficiaries of this event included EIF/Women’s Cancer Research Fund’s Biomarker Discovery Project and research being conducted at prestigious, National Cancer Institute (NCI)-accredited medical institutes, UCLA Johnson Comprehensive Cancer Center, USC/Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center and the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

These funds sustain the critical research for the early detection and prevention of women’s cancer. We thank you for your continued support in bringing us closer to the goal of finding a cure in this lifetime.  Always thinking outside of the box, Women’s Cancer Research Fund supports innovative studies on prevention; new projects investigate the link between the environment and cancer; incorporating the effect of impactful lifestyle changes on health and wellness.
