Philanthropic gift casts rosy outlook for graduate student breast cancer researchers

Cancer Research Institute of Northern Alberta (CRINA) names three recipients of La Vie en Rose Scholarships in Breast Cancer Research.

Graduate students Daniel Krys, Francisca Cristi Munoz and Zelei Yang will receive a partial stipend of $10,000 for one year from the Cancer Research Institute of Northern Alberta (CRINA), thanks to the Roses of Hope Foundation, a charitable organization backed by La Vie En Rose and its clients in support of women's health.

Over the past six years, the Montreal-based Canadian lingerie and sleepwear company has donated more than $800,000 to Canadian breast cancer research, including the University of Alberta's CRINA, allowing for the creation of three La Vie en Rose graduate scholarships in Breast Cancer Research.

Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths among women. These winning student projects will make strides toward improving the lives of those affected by the disease through a better understanding of diagnosis and treatment.
