The Women’s Cancer Research Fund was created by Honorary Chairs Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson and Kate Capshaw and Steven Spielberg, along with, Co-founders Kelly Chapman Meyer, Marion Laurie, Anne Douglas, Quinn Ezralow and Jamie Tisch. They joined forces with the Entertainment Industry Foundation, a leading charity in Hollywood, to address the issue of cancer and the urgent need to develop new ways to treat it, to detect it early, and even prevent it.

Their goal is very simple: to save lives by raising critical funds to help fast track more effective approaches to the early diagnosis of women’s cancers.

EIF's Breast Cancer Biomarker Discovery Project

Detecting breast cancer early is the single most important thin we can do to save lives. Most women who die of breast cancer do so because the disease was detected when it was too advanced to cure. So how do we catch it early enough? It’s a question that EIF’s Breast Cancer Biomarker Discovery Consortium endeavors to answer. Our blood holds the key in molecules called biomarkers – unique proteins that may signal the presence of cancer. The goal of the consortium project, sponsored by the Entertainment Industry Foundation / Women’s Cancer Research Fund, is to discover which biomarkers are related to breast cancer.
