A Partner to The Community: SBU Cancer Center Team Honored for Outreach, Research and Specialized Care


WMHO Bestows SBU Team with Heritage Partner Award at Annual Dinner

The Stony Brook University Cancer Center team was honored by the Ward Melville Heritage Organization (WMHO) at its 14th Annual Long Island Golden Eagle Award Dinner, held at the Hyatt Regency Wind Watch in Hauppauge on June 28. The event celebrated the outstanding achievements of individuals who have shown leadership and generosity to WMHO and the Long Island community through their respective organizations. Among the honorees, the SBU Cancer Center team received the Heritage Partner Award.

"It is fitting at this time to present the Heritage Partner Award to the esteemed group of researchers and compassionate specialists who make up the Stony Brook University Cancer Center team," said Gloria Rocchio, President, WMHO, referring to the many years WMHO has worked with the Medical Center and its cancer specialists to raise money for research and educate the community, as well as for the care provided by the specialists at a new state-of-the-art outpatient facility.

Since 1994 the Medical Center has partnered with WMHO to run the annual Walk for Beauty, which raises funds for breast and prostate cancer research. Approximately $850,000 has been raised from the Walk to support seed grants for numerous breast and prostate cancer research studies at Stony Brook.

The results of these studies have been so promising that the researchers, collectively, have received nearly $7 million in additionally funding from national organizations to continue the research. These researchers have published their work in 86 peer-reviewed articles in national and international journals such as The Journal of Clinical Oncology, Science, and The Journal of Biological Chemistry.
