Cure Breast Cancer Foundation Raises over $500,000 with Two Spring/Summer Events

2016-04-27_14-42-08The Cure Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF), a Clifton, N.J.-based not-for-profit 501(c) 3 charity, has announced a successful start to its 2016 fundraising initiatives.

The organization’s keystone event – the 9th annual “Pink is the New Green®” Golf Classic held on June 13th – was one of the most prosperous on record, raising more than $500,000 to support the groundbreaking breast cancer research efforts under the direction of Dr. Larry Norton, the Deputy Physician-in-Chief for Breast Cancer Programs and the Medical Director of the Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.  Held yearly at the Mountain Ridge Country Club in West Caldwell, N.J., the 2016 golf tournament featured an exciting $18,000 Winner Take All Chip Off and raffle drawing for a brand new Ford Mustang convertible.

Preceding the Golf Classic, CBCF teamed up with Jena Karp, one of the most popular Flywheel instructors and a breast cancer survivor herself, for a special 45-minute indoor cycling experience to raise important funds and awareness.  The “Save The Tatas With Jena” event, which took place at Flywheel Sports-Tribeca in mid-May, and raised $7,100.

Fully 100% of the net fundraising proceeds received by CBCF during all fundraising efforts are donated towards research projects coordinated by Dr. Norton.

“The success of CBCF could not be achieved without our generous donors and participants and our dedicated business partners, volunteers and community leaders,” says Andrew B. Abramson, Treasurer and Co-Founder of CBCF.  “We continue to reach new heights thanks to their efforts and the overwhelming success of these two events demonstrates how our supporters are highly engaged with Dr. Norton’s work and committed to helping to find a cure for breast cancer. The Golf Classic and Flywheel events are a perfect springboard into our full schedule of fall fundraising activities.”

Renowned Breast Cancer Expert Dr. Larry Norton Expresses Continued Support for Age 40 Screening

DR. LARRY NORTON

DR. LARRY NORTON

Dr. Larry Norton, Deputy Physician-in-Chief for Breast Cancer Programs and the Medical Director of the Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, has expressed his continued support for women to begin annual breast cancer screening at age 40.

In response to new guidelines published by the American Cancer Society recommending annual mammograms starting at age 45, Dr. Norton — who serves as scientific advisor for the Cure Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF), a Clifton, N.J. – based not-for-profit 501(c) 3 charity — recently released a statement outlining the many benefits of early testing.

Dr. Norton’s response expands upon information from Denise Grady of the New York Times stating:

“All the groups agree that mammography can reduce a woman’s risk of dying from breast cancer, by about 20 percent. But when it comes to when to start and how often to screen, many experts say there is no one answer that suits all women.

Those who want to find tumors when they are as small and as early as possible should screen earlier and more often — provided that they can live with the high likelihood that at some point they will be called back to the clinic for more testing based on a false positive.

Women who find screening onerous or nerve-racking can take advantage of the opportunity to start later and undergo the testing less often — provided that they can live with the possibility that if they do develop cancer, the tumor may be larger and more advanced than it would have been had they been screened more often.”

Dr. Norton adds:

”20% is probably a low estimate of the benefit. The benefit may be as high as 48% in women who are actually screened.

The use of the word “high” may be a slight overstatement. And most of the cases called back only need one more mammogram view or a sonogram to be told that they have no problem. A small percentage (1-3%) need a needle biopsy to be assured  that they do not have cancer, and studies have shown that most such women are grateful for the news and support further breast screening.

And “larger and more advanced” means that more aggressive management is often necessary as well as the possibility of a lower chance of cure.

For these reasons, I continue to support annual mammography starting at age 40 for a woman at average risk of developing breast cancer.”

Dr. Norton who is leading the fight against breast cancer with groundbreaking work and has discovered that cancer cell mobility and the interactions between the cancer cell and its microscopic environment are the key pathways to understanding and eventually eradicating breast cancer.

CBCF is directly responsible for and is actively supporting Dr. Norton’s work through fundraising for two important research projects – breast cancer and its microenvironment and bone metabolism and breast cancer.  All this work is coordinated by Dr. Norton and a dedicated team of physicians and scientists at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York and New Jersey and their national and international collaborators. It is based on the discovery that abnormal cell division is only one of the dangerous characteristic of cancer.

CBCF Prepares to Host First Annual ‘The Gala Pink’ to Benefit Breast Cancer Research

Formal Evening of Drinks, Dinner and Celebration Will Take Place on Wednesday, March 26th at Three Sixty ° in New York City’s Tribeca; Live Auction to be Held to Benefit Breast Cancer Research

Gala PinkCLIFTON, N.J. – One of the most anticipated events in the history of the Cure Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) will take place on Wednesday, March 26th  when the non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization hosts its first annual “The Gala Pink” at Three Sixty °, the spectacular rooftop venue with incredible views of New York City in Tribeca.

The first large-scale event ever to be hosted by CBCF’s Junior Board, The Gala Pink is a public affair to celebrate and recognize the year-long fundraising efforts of CBCF and its many donors, partners and contributors featuring cocktails, a dinner reception and special guest speakers highlighted by Dr. Elizabeth Comen, a noted medical oncologist at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

The formal evening is a continuation of CBCF’s tireless work to raise funds for the self-seeding theory of breast cancer research of Dr. Norton, the Deputy Physician-in-Chief for Breast Cancer Programs and the Medical Director of the Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, and other national and international research facilities. 100% of the proceeds from the event will be donated to the work of Dr. Norton and his colleagues.

The Gala Pink will also feature a live and silent auction with enticing items including fashion show tickets for a Fall/Winter 2014 Show, custom Taylor Made golf clubs and bag and dinner for 10 at home from a world-renowned chef at Rao’s.  The Gala Pink will begin at 7:30 p.m. Tickets to the event cost $175 in advance and $225 at the door.  For additional information or to purchase tickets, go here.

CBCF LOGO“The key to our success has been the diligence and dedication of our board and committee members and the many donors, volunteers, corporate partners and more who are the foundation of all the events we host throughout the year, from our annual Golf Classic and walk-a-thons to fashion shows and shop for a cure specials,” says Andrew Abramson, Treasurer and Co-Founder of the Clifton, N.J.-based CBCF.

“The Gala Pink is the culmination of all their work and recognition of their commitment to this ground breaking breast cancer research. What better way to celebrate their efforts than with a fun night of drinks, food, mingling and the opportunity to bid for a cure.  We invite everyone to join us for this special night and look forward to applauding our staff and generous partners.”

Breast cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer death among women. Most cases of primary disease (in the breast and the lymph nodes under the arm) are cured by modern therapy. But should the cells spread to other parts of the body the disease can be controlled, but rarely cured. Dr. Norton’s team is dedicated to changing this by focusing our efforts on a revolutionary new concept of cancer that offers many possibilities for new methods of diagnosis, treatment, and even prevention.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Event

MakingStridesEvery Making Strides event is a powerful and inspiring opportunity to unite as a community to honor breast cancer survivors, raise awareness about what we can do to stay well from breast cancer, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society fight the disease with breast cancer research, information and services, and access to mammograms for women who need them.
