Your Views: Donors’ contributions to state cancer fund makes a difference

POSTED: May 5, 2011 9:03 a.m.

No one looks forward to paying taxes. So, those who voluntarily add $1 or more on their state income tax return to support the Georgia Cancer Research Fund are to be especially commended. Since 2003, generous taxpayers have donated $2.9 million for research into the cause, treatment and cure for cancer.

On behalf of the Georgia Cancer Coalition, I want to thank these anonymous donors, and assure them that their money is being spent wisely. Each dollar is matched by philanthropic and community resources, resulting in a $5.8 million investment.

Further, Cancer Research Awards provide seed money for pilot studies which have a history of attracting larger national grant awards; in fact, generating $11 million in federal and private funding.

The GCC works to reduce cancer-related deaths and make Georgia a premier state for cancer care. But we couldn't do it without your support. Thank you.
