fundraising participants have made it possible for the to distribute
more than 65 million to support pioneering research, deliver diagnostic treatment services for medically under-served women, and provide psycho-social & financial support to women facing cancer and their loved ones.
Some of the programs that benefited from fundraising in 2011 include Actors' Fund of America, Albert Einstein Cancer Center, CancerCare, Gilda's Club NYC, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship (NCCS), EIF Women’s Cancer Programs (National Women's Cancer Research Alliance), Ovarian Cancer National Alliance, William F.
