UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center receives donation

BIRMINGHAM (WBRC) - Breast cancer research at UAB's Comprehensive Cancer Center received a big boost Tuesday.

The Breast Cancer Research Foundation of Alabama made its largest annual donation ever to the clinic—$400,000.

The organization raises money every year by selling specialized car tags and hosting various money raising events. This year, half the money was donated in honor of Senior Scientist, Dr. Andres Forero.

The Breast Cancer Foundation has donated nearly $3 million to UAB since 1996.
