Research Grant to UHKFBreast Cancer Action Kingston continues to bring awareness about breast cancer and the services we have available to the community by advertising in local media and by attending local events which feature women’s health with our displays and pink merchandise or our breast cancer presentations to health personnel and to the general public. I am very pleased to let you know that this past fall BCAK entered into a new five-year commitment through the University Hospitals Kingston Foundation to contribute a total of $75,000 over 5 years in the area of patient care. This is broken down into $10,000 a year from our Walk revenue to local breast cancer research initiatives and $5,000 per year to create and maintain a new website for the Breast Assessment Program at Hotel Dieu Hospital. The latter will greatly enhance patient access to information. The research grant process will still be adjudicated by Dr. Roger Deeley and his committee at Kingston General Hospital.
