Graham Cancer Center (DE) Receives $1M Gift

A $1 million gift to ChristianaCare will support the purchase of a state-of-the-art radiography system to analyze breast cancer specimens at the Helen F. Graham Cancer Center & Research Institute in Delaware and expand a fellowship program to reduce disparities in breast and lung cancer.

In Delaware breast and lung cancer are among the most frequently diagnosed cancers. The First State has the highest incidence nationally of triple negative breast cancer, the most aggressive form of breast cancer, among the Black population. And lung cancer is responsible for 33% of cancer deaths in Delaware.
