Paras Pumpkins Partners with Stefanie Spielman Fund

Jeanette is a two-time breast cancer thrive-r (a term she prefers to ‘survivor’) who, in 2015, underwent a mastectomy and reconstruction during nine hours of surgery. She credits thriving to early detection because breast cancer is treatable – most of the time – when discovered early on.

Jeanette has set an immediate goal of raising $5,000 for the Spielman Fund and will match – dollar for dollar – the first $2,500 donated.

  • Creation of the largest breast cancer tissue and tumor repositories that supports numerous research efforts
  • The emerging role of microRNAs in drug-resistant breast cancer
    Creation of a designated fellowship in breast cancer research
  • Monies donated to the Spielman Fund is deployed where they are needed most and have the most strategic impact.
