Fueling revolutionary research
We did it… Together, with our valued customers, GE Healthcare raised $75,000 for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) last year.
This funds 1,500 hours of revolutionary research into the most common cancer in women worldwide. That’s almost 188 days or nine months.
Achieving our 2018 goal—$150,000 and over 3,000 hours—can move all of us that much closer to a cure.
Our customers play an important role in helping us reach our donation targets.
In October 2018, in association with Breast Cancer Awareness Month, GE Healthcare donated $500 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) for every sale of a GE Healthcare mammography system in the United States, with a maximum donation of up to $50,000. This program is ongoing, you can still help us achieve our goal to support breast cancer research.
In addition, for every pack of GE Whatman lab filtration products purchased in the month of October, GE Healthcare also gave $1 to BCRF.
GE Healthcare mammography products and GE Whatman product families are used around the globe supporting cancer research and other critical work.
Zeroing in on breast cancer’s main risk factors is the key to “precision prevention.” A BCRF researcher discusses this new tailored approach to the disease, and other innovations.
