In a presentation on Oct. 29, 2020, the Louisiana Cancer Foundation presented a check for $10,000 to the University of Louisiana Monroe Foundation for the breast cancer research of Dr. Paul Sylvester of the College of Pharmacy.

LCF Executive Director James Adams reiterated that 15 years ago the foundation board was seeking a way to fulfill LCF’s mission to support cancer research. “We initially met Dr. Paul Sylvester and were immediately impressed with his research using tocotrienols for breast cancer prevention and treatment,” Adams said. “Since we are a local cancer foundation with all monies being raised locally and redistributed back into our community, we thought it fitting that we supported cancer research being conducted at the ULM College of Pharmacy.”
Dr. Sylvester expressed his gratitude to LCF, saying, “It has been an honor and privilege to be part of this long collaborative relationship with the Louisiana Cancer Foundation. The foundation’s support and interest in our research have not only been of great benefit to our research efforts, but has also resulted in the formation of some very dear friendships with the foundation’s board members.”
