With the goal of addressing the issue of cancer and the urgent need to develop new methods of treatment, detection and even prevention, The Women’s Cancer Research Fund joined forces with the influential Hollywood-based Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) to raise funds to fast-track more effective approaches to the early diagnosis of women’s cancers. Through fundraising, the charity has helped bring about one of the most ambitious medical projects today – EIF’s Breast Cancer Biomarker Discover Project, in which world-class scientists are researching a blood test that will diagnose breast and other women’s cancers in the earliest stages – i.e., when they can be cured. 2003, the charity presented Stella McCartney with the Woman of Courage Award at the An Unforgettable Evening gala event for her sustained support in the battle against breast cancer.
