The Somerset Collection and its many retail partners in Somerset Collection South will close their doors to the general public that evening for a private, ticketed fundraiser hosted by Nate and Catherine Forbes.

The month of August will kick-off a vast marketing initiative that highlights the research taking place within UMCCC, culminating with Maize and Blue Go Pink on the evening of Thursday, August 21. The Somerset Collection will turn maize, blue and pink for the first 21 days of the month with banners, signage and materials that will be placed throughout the mall.

About the Cause

 

Supporting Breast Cancer Research at the University of Michigan

There has never been a more exciting, promising moment in breast cancer research. The U-M Comprehensive Cancer Center is leading the world in discovering and developing personalized cancer therapies, anchored by its Breast Oncology Program. Perhaps more than any other academic institution in the country, U-M cancer scientists are poised to revolutionize the way breast cancer is treated.

The U-M's multifaceted and revolutionary approach to breast cancer — from molecular-based, personalized therapies to addressing the whole family's quality of life — make this the place for tomorrow's cancer care.

As we stand on the brink of phenomenal advances, greater investment in breast cancer research is needed now.

An investment in the U-M Breast Oncology Program is an unprecedented opportunity to define the future of breast cancer care around the world. The time is now to transform our groundbreaking discoveries into patient care as quickly as possible. The millions of women, families and communities affected by breast cancer should not have to wait.

Join us in creating the future of breast cancer care.
