Breast cancer survivors and South Placer County residents, Carol Garcia and Teri Munger formed the Placer Breast Cancer Endowment in 2005 with a goal to raise $1.5 million to endow a Breast Cancer Chair at the U.C. Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center. After reaching the $1.5 million dollar goal in 2014, the Endowment became the Placer Breast Cancer Foundation with the intention to continue the fight against breast cancer.
The goal for the Endowment has been reached but the journey has just begun. The Foundation is a volunteer based group that includes breast cancer survivors and community activists dedicated to raising monies in order to fund research, education and outreach throughout our five county region.
