Greetings Drink for Pink family!
As we enter October, and Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we wanted to share some content that is close to our mission. But first, we wanted to thank you for your patronage, donations, and attendance at our events throughout the years. This community is dear to us and we appreciate your support in raising as much money as possible every year for the fight against Breast Cancer. We also want to thank our Board and Volunteer core, who take the time out of their schedules to help us plan and execute every event you attend. Finally, our partnership with our Corporate Sponsor, Coterie Collective, and Cancer League of Colorado, for giving us the infrastructure we need to be successful.
Now, on to the content we promised :)
When we started Drink for Pink in 2015, we wanted to connect every dollar donated to the research it was funding. We have been able to fulfill on this promise every year, and in some occasions we are able to sit down with the actual Research team and learn more about their work.
In this video, we sat down with the 2020 Drink for Pink funds recipient, Dr. Carol Sartorius, to learn about her project titled "Lipodependence of Endocrine Resistant Breast Cancer as a Therapeutic Target”. We were joined by Ashley Ward, a senior predoctoral student, as she is finishing her dissertation on this project.
For anyone curious on the actual notes on the project, we have included it below:
