The Bucks County Chapter (BCC) of the Board of
Associates of Fox Chase Cancer Center was formed in the early 1980s.
The chapter has designated that all funds raised go directly to cancer
research at Fox Chase Cancer Center. The BCC made its first donation of
$500 to the Center in 1983. From that humble beginning, and with
30 years of varied fundraising events, to date we have raised over $4.4
million for the Center.
Fox Chase Cancer Center, part of the Temple University Health System,
is one of the leading cancer research and treatment centers in the
United States. Founded in 1904 in Philadelphia as one of the nation’s
first cancer hospitals, Fox Chase was also among the first institutions
to be designated a National Cancer Institute Comprehensive Cancer Center
in 1974. Fox Chase researchers have won the highest awards in their
fields, including two Nobel Prizes. Fox Chase physicians are also
routinely recognized in national rankings, and the Center’s nursing
program has received the Magnet status for excellence three consecutive
times. Today, Fox Chase conducts a broad array of nationally competitive
basic, translational, and clinical research, with special programs in
cancer prevention, detection, survivorship, and community outreach.
