$120,000 Research Grant from CVHLA and CRS
Awarded to McGill, Montreal, Quebec Research Project
Lead by Dr. Hamed Najafabadi
Fundraising led by the Rick Bracey Memorial baseball tournament in Surrey BC and the Ontario Walk and Dance fundraising and the countless individual donations from across the country have allowed the CVHLA to put up $60,000 spread over 2018 and 2019 for Canadian Cancer Research. Our partner, the Cancer Research Society (CRS), has matched this with their own $60,000 and the CRS has identified Dr. Najafabadi's McGill research as an excellent fit for the CVHLA money.
Due to the strength of the VHL grant applications, the CRS also funded another VHL related research grant in Toronto for $120,000.
Your $60,000 raised turned into $120,000 for VHL research here in Canada!!
Thank you for your support!
The cure for cancer is in our genes
