The Southeast Cancer Foundation (SCF),a dedicated supporter of cancer research in the Birmingham community, presented a donation to the UAB Department of Radiation Oncology in a ceremony celebrated at The Club in Birmingham, Alabama on October 10, 2013.
Since its foundation in 2009, the SCF has actively worked to support cancer research at local and regional centers. The Foundation's mission is to improve the survival and quality of life of cancer patients through clinical and translational research.
The SCF made the donation to the department with the proceeds raised at its fundraising event –the 3rd Annual James Bond Gala, hosted by the Regional Oncology Active Research (ROAR) committee of the Southeast Cancer Foundation.
The $400,000 donation will be used to establish the ROAR Southeast Cancer Foundation Endowed Chair.
