Sacramento Business Journal

The nine-year odyssey to fund an endowed chair to research breast cancer reached its goal of $1.5 million Thursday, and now the national search begins to find a researcher and clinician.

The Placer Breast Cancer Endowment in 2005 started raising funds to create an Breast Cancer Endowed Chair at the UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center. Donations of about $300,000 raised Thursday at the annual Broker of the Year Awards in Sacramento pushed the effort past its minimum funding level.
