This 501(c)3 was launched in 1999 in an effort to bring light to the work being done in their own backyard and to bring additional friends and supporters to the cause. For the past 11 years the SD Ireland Cancer Research Fund has supported the ground breaking research being done by Dr. David Krag and his research team at the University of Vermont’s College of Medicine. This support has been rewarded with successful new therapies, including radio-guided sentinel node surgery, which is now the standard treatment for breast cancer nationwide. 100% of all donations go directly to support this valuable research. Any costs associated with the fundraising are absorbed by S.D. Ireland.
