Resounding applause filled the ballroom of the Boca West County Club as the president of The Pap Corps, JoAnne Goldberg, presented officials from Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center with a check for $3.6 million. This represents one year of fundraising for the organization, and it topped last year’s donation by $400,000. Since 1952, members and friends have donated over $46 million. The Pap Corps is the largest all- volunteer organization in the United States dedicated solely to funding research on ALL Types of cancer. “I am so proud of all of you,” Goldberg said to the hundreds of volunteers at the event. “With your dedication and support we surpassed our goal!” These yearly, multi-million dollar donations are possible thanks to the outstanding, tireless work of the tens of thousands of Pap Corps volunteers throughout Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties. Critical research is necessary to discover and create breakthrough treatments for ALL Types of cancer in men, women and children. “One in three Americans is touched by cancer,” said W. Jarrard Goodwin, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, Sylvester/UMHC. “It is difficult to escape cancer’s reach. But we can change those statistics. Working together I know it can be done.” To join or donate to The Pap Corps, please visit www.papcorps.org.
