2021 Virtual Armchair Affair

Tuesday, October 5th, 2021

For the safety of our fabulous donors and organizers, we’ve gone to a virtual format – again – this year for our fundraising efforts.

Even in these challenging times, we’ve been able to grow our endowments. Thanks to your continued generosity, the ESSCO-MGH Breast Cancer Research Fund has raised over $5 million enabling ESSCO-MGH Investigators to perform innovative breast cancer research for years to come. And as of today, we are only $23,000 away from reaching our goal of $2 million to fully fund the ESSCO-Slater Family Endowed Chair in Surgical Oncology.

We hope you’ll help us reach our goal by making a charitable contribution to our endowments. It’s simple and easy, and you can do it without leaving the safety and comfort of your home! Just click on the attached link and choose your method of giving. 

Unique to our funds, every penny we raise goes directly to MGH.

As always, we thank you for your generosity and continued support!
