Endowment to fund breast cancer research scholarships

An endowment that will provide scholarships to University of Windsor graduate students researching breast cancer will top $300,000 and is expected to announce its first recipients this year.~

In honour of Gail Rosenblum, a friend who died from the disease, Patti Dunlop chaired and planned a series of events to support donations to the University of Windsor, Windsor Regional Cancer Centre and the Windsor Regional Hospital Digital Mammography Fund, as well as a breast cancer research unit at London Regional Cancer Centre. A golf tournament Dunlop has held annually since 2000 has raised almost half a million dollars.

University Advancement worked with Dunlop to bring the endowment to campus. She said there were many factors that made creating a memorial scholarship gratifying.

"We know that it will advance knowledge that will help women for time to come, and not just in Windsor or London, but all over the world," Dunlop said. "And it will be a lasting gift that will support more research year after year.”

To lend your support to the Gail Rosenblum Memorial Breast Cancer Research Scholarship Fund, contact Amanda Gellman, vice-president university advancement, at agellman@uwindsor.ca, or use the online donation form.
