The PA Breast Cancer Coalition (PBCC) kicks off its annual Refunds for Breast and Cervical Cancer Research campaign to fund Pennsylvania cancer researchers this month. Since 1997, nearly $3 million has been donated to the Refunds for Research campaign and 74 grants have been awarded to Pennsylvania scientists looking for the cause of and cure for breast cancer. Every Pennsylvania resident can participate by simply filling in the amount they choose to donate on line 36 of the PA-40 tax form. They may donate all or part of their refund toward research. The PBCC has chosen three researchers, including Dr. Hannah Rabinowich from the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute to receive $50,000 grants in 2013.
