Bill and Nancy Graham of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, have donated $1 million to support breast cancer research and care at UNC Lineberger.
The Grahams established the Bill and Nancy Graham Breast Cancer Research Fund to provide the cancer center’s leadership with unrestricted funding, which enables them to make investments where the need is greatest, including faculty recruitment and research support. It is also an important contribution to the Campaign for Carolina, UNC Chapel Hill’s ambitious fundraising campaign.
“Bill and Nancy Graham are true North Carolinians who value the importance of service to others,” said Shelton Earp, MD, director of UNC Lineberger and the Lineberger Professor of Cancer Research. “We’re extremely grateful for their gift and the flexibility they have given us to use those funds where we believe it can have the most impact, both today and in the future.”
