Former President Clinton Establishes Breast Cancer Fund

In collaboration with the National Breast Cancer Coalition, former President Clinton has helped establish the Virginia Clinton Kelley Fund. Clinton's mother died from breast cancer in 1994. According to the NBCC's website, the fund will "support NBCCF programs, which educate and train breast cancer survivors to influence research and public policy, foster innovation in research and health care, and expand access to quality care. This fund will also support collaborations among women with breast cancer, researchers and health care stakeholders." The Kaiser Network reports that the fund will also support "high-risk" research.
