Spielman Fund eNews June 2013
Dear Friend,

Did you know that 100% of the dollars raised for the Spielman Fund go directly to support breast cancer research and care at Ohio State’s Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James)? None of your generous support is required for overhead, allowing for your gifts to make the greatest impact where it’s needed most. Thank you for your continued support. Continue to fight. Continue to live.
The Spielman Fund at Work- Erin Olson, MD
Erin Olson, MDThe Spielman Fund is devoted to advancing research and finding a cure that we can pass along to our children. One of the OSUCCC – James researchers who is carrying Stefanie’s dream of a cancer-free world through their work is Erin Olson, MD in the Division of Medical Oncology. She is running a research study funded entirely by the Spielman Fund called, “MEK and AKT Inhibition in Patients With Advanced Triple Negative Breast Cancer”. Because patients with triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) have poor clinical outcomes, scientists are seeking new targeted therapies. This study will evaluate the ability of MEK and AKT protein inhibitor-based therapies to cause a durable antitumor response in advanced TNBC and to understand predictors of sensitivity and mechanisms of resistance to these agents. This approach will involve the first clinical trial to evaluate a novel targeted combination strategy for metastatic TNBC.
 

 
Hope’s Boutique Cocktail Hour- A Success!
Congratulations and a huge thank you to Susan Zanner, Nancy Rapport and Michele Kusma for hosting the Hope’s Boutique Cocktail Hour on May 9 at the Stefanie Spielman Comprehensive Breast Center.  This inspiring evening brought together supporters, family and friends to spread awareness about breast cancer and to share what the Comprehensive Breast Center has to offer. The event offered guests the chance to socialize, shop at Hope’s Boutique and tour the Center while enjoying hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. Donations from the evening will benefit the Stefanie Spielman Comprehensive Breast Center.

There is No Such Thing as a Routine Mammogram
The "No Routine Mammogram" campaign is back this spring and will be featured throughout Columbus and central Ohio. For the fall 2012 campaign, the OSUCCC – James was awarded "gold" in the Total Advertising Campaign category for academic medical centers in the Cancer Awareness Advertising Awards, an international competition among hospitals, health systems and academic medical centers. Even more importantly, the campaign paid off, resulting in monthly increases as high as 30 percent for clinical volume at the Stefanie Spielman Comprehensive Breast Center.
