JKCC Receives Komen Grant

The Joan Karnell Cancer Center at Pennsylvania Hospital is proud to announce the receipt of one of 30 grants awarded by the Philadelphia Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

Over $1.8 million dollars was distributed by the Komen Foundation as a result of fundraising efforts throughout 2005, including the 15th Annual Komen Philadelphia Race for the Cure.

The Joan Karnell Cancer Center project selected for funding, titled “Breaking Barriers to Breast Cancer Care,” was awarded $40,000 for education and support services. This funding will provide temporary gap grants to women undergoing treatment for breast cancer, provide educational materials and lymphedema supplies, provide Healthy Balance programs for women who have completed treatment for breast cancer and provide a community education program on early detection of breast cancer.
