Two decades. The Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research celebrates 20 years this year. It’s a milestone of which I am incredibly proud—and one I’m certain Stefanie would be equally delighted about.
I hope you share in that pride. The work taking place at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James) would not be possible without each of you. That includes the subject of our cover story, Chix With Stix, a community partner also celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. The women involved with this ladies-only golf outing display exceptional enthusiasm and dedication to breast cancer research.
This issue of Legacy also contains a story on clinical trials from Bhuvana Ramaswamy, MD, academic chief of the breast medical oncology section at the OSUCCC – James. In addition, you will ﬁnd a proﬁle about two grateful patients who formed a friendship after meeting at the Stefanie Spielman Comprehensive Breast Center and who now volunteer to help others during their breast cancer journeys.
I hope that as you read these stories you will feel inspired by the many efforts to support breast cancer research. Thank you for your generous support and commitment to making this work possible for the last 20 years. Here’s to the next two decades of striving to create a cancer-free world.
Continue to Fight,
Co-Founder, Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research
