For the third year, Demco Automation was a program sponsor for the Bucks County Chapter of the Board of Associates of Fox Chase Cancer Center’s 2014 fund raising event held at the James A. Michener Art Museum. The event is used to raise funds for cancer research and all money raised at the event benefited research at Fox Chase Cancer Center with a goal to raise $200,000. Since 1983, the Bucks County Chapter has raised $3.6 million for the Fox Chase Cancer Center.
This year’s “Special Pledge” benefited precision medicine research. At Fox Chase, cancer specialists are able to use an individual’s unique DNA sequences to determine that person’s risk of cancer. They also use DNA sequencing to identify targeted treatments that can provide the best outcome for an individual patient. You can read more about precision medicine research here.
