Emory gets $10 million for breast cancer center

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Emory University's cancer center has received $10 million in gifts to fund a center for breast cancer research and treatment.

The university says the Wilbur and Hilda Glenn Family has donated the money to the university's Winship Cancer Institute. The Glenn Family Breast Center will focus on supporting the breast cancer program's research priorities.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in women. The National Cancer Institute estimates one in every eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer.

The Glenn Foundation money will help build up Winship's cancer biospecimen bank, clinical trials, community access, and a multidisciplinary approach to screening and caring for women at high risk for the disease.
