Jean Sindab Fund for Triple Negative Breast Cancer Research

Did you know that there are different types of breast cancer?  The type of breast cancer a person has determines treatment options. Approximately 18% of women diagnosed with breast cancer are diagnosed with a form of the disease called “triple negative,” an often aggressive form of breast cancer that disproportionately affects young women, African American and Hispanic/Latina women, and women who have BRCA1 mutations.

Winship Cancer Institute researchers are focused on making a difference for those diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer. The Jean Sindab Fund for Triple Negative Breast Cancer Research at Winship provides critical financial support for triple negative breast cancer research.  The Sindab Fund is named for Jean Sindab, PhD, a Yale educated, African American scholar and activist who died at age 51 from breast cancer.

We welcome your partnership in the fight against this complex form of breast cancer.  To make a gift to the Sindab Fund for Triple Negative Breast Cancer Research, please call the Winship Development Office at 404-778-5175 or mail in your contribution to:
