The American Cancer Society is launching a campaign that will specifically fund the work of women in cancer research — an effort named the “ResearcHERS™: Women Fighting Cancer” campaign.
ResearcHERS seeks contributions from donors that will exclusively support women’s cancer research — ensuring women will continue to make significant scientific contributions to help save lives from all types of cancer.

The ACS launched the Michigan portion of its campaign with a kick-off event at the Kensington Hotel in Ann Arbor earlier this month.

ACS put the spotlight on CBSSM's Director Reshma Jagsi and her patient, Tess Downie. The two helped to highlight the importance of cancer research funding and how those funds specifically aid women during their careers.


There was also a panel discussion featuring CBSSM's Sarah Hawley.
