Congressman Boyle Announces Federal Grants to Fox Chase Cancer Center and Temple University
WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Brendan F. Boyle (PA-02) released the following statement announcing the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services grant awards of $667,865 to Fox Chace Cancer Center for cancer research and $6,000 to Temple University for a conference on movement disorders:
“I offer my sincerest congratulations to the researchers at Fox Chase Cancer Center and Temple University for their receipt of these important grants. I could not be prouder of the important work they do in my district, to the benefit of all Americans. We’ve seen incredible strides in cancer detection and treatment, but that’s no reason to step off the gas. For the one in three Americans who is diagnosed with cancer at some point in their life, these treatments often make the difference between life and death. For the almost-40 million Americans, many of them children, who struggle with movement disorders, the knowledge shared by Temple University’s conference will make great strides to improve their quality of life. On both fronts, I will keep doing everything I can in Congress to help.”
These federal grants come from the Department of Health and Human Services’ National Cancer Institute and the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, respectively.
