Fund A Need

A multi-million dollar challenge to further the study of BRCA mutation research

The V Foundation for Cancer Research is pleased to announce a partnership with the San Francisco-based BRCA Foundation and the Gray Foundation to fund research of cancers that derive from BRCA or BRCA-like mutations. Each organization will provide a $1.5 million challenge to the V Foundation for BRCA Research Collaborative Grants. This research will advance the study of inherited mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2, genes that produce tumor suppressor proteins. Women and men born with a mutated copy of either BRCA1 or BRCA2 are at a significantly increased risk of developing cancer.

The V Foundation’s Wine Celebration will feature BRCA research as the 2017 event’s “Fund-A-Need” and with a successful match to the challenge, the combined investment for this cutting-edge research will be $6 million.
