Dancing For Cancer Research at McGill With Video
What does Breast Cancer Awareness mean to McGill University?
Breast Cancer Awareness Month is of great importance to me personally and to so many people. I would like to share a video with everyone that I think is absolutely amazing. Everyone in this video is a scientist, student, lab technician, faculty member at McGill or a doctor. These people along with many hard workingl volunteers did such a wonderful job with this video that highlights only some of the work that is done at The Rosalind and Morris Goodman Cancer Research Centre located in Montreal, Quebec. This centre first opened in 1978 and was originally called McGill Cancer Centre.
Where is McGill University located?
The sponsors of this video, "Medicom, state that a donation will be made for each hit to support advances in cancer research at the Goodman Cancer Research Centre."
The Rosalind and Morris Goodman Cancer Research Centre
The centre was renamed after receiving a very generous donation from Rosalind and Morris Goodman-Owen Egan. Mrs. Goodman who attended McGill University graduated in 1963 receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree. Mr. Goodman spent one year at McGill doing his undergraduate degree here before attending Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Montreal. They loved McGill so much and wanted their children to have the best education possible. Three of their four children studied at McGill.
Important discoveries are made at this centre on a daily basis focusing on improvement for treatment of cancer and prevention. For more information on this centre please click here.
