The Kolschowsky Foundation has provided a gift of $5.3 million over five years  to expand research in women’s gynecological cancers at Sarasota Memorial Health Care System. This gift is in addition to the phase 1 gift of $1.3 million-making the total pledged amount over $6.5 million.  In 2010, the Healthcare Foundation received an initial grant to launch a pilot program in women’s cancer research at Sarasota Memorial. Dr. James Fiorica, gynecologic oncologist and Medical Director of the Women’s Gynecology Cancer Research Program at Sarasota Memorial, collaborated with other scientists and institutions around the world with a global goal to reduce cancer deaths. This recent gift allows Sarasota Memorial to move into the next phase of the program by expanding treatment options outside of Sarasota to other regions.
