Letter From the Executive Director - March
While Linda was the original investigator that held the Chair title from our first endowment, our subsequent gifts have helped to develop and support a full team of 33 other breast cancer scientists collaborating at the The Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer Research Laboratories. Under the continued leadership of the brilliant Dr. George Sledge, whose vision first captured our hearts, they are focused on the many causes of breast cancer and are rapidly moving their discoveries to the patient care arena. The dollars we raise will continue to be directed to our $20 million commitment to help women with breast cancer live longer, healthier lives.
The search has begun for a new Vera Bradley Chair in Oncology, and we will keep you apprised of that progress. We can’t thank Linda enough for giving a passionate voice to the research we support, and we wish her well in her new role.
P.S. Remember to stop in to visit our great partners all over northeast Indiana!
