Nearly 70 years ago, Dr. George Papanicolau, the namesake of our organization, discovered that cancer could be detected early enough to cure it. His discovery, the Pap smear, has saved millions of lives and is now the most widely used cancer screening method in the world. This breakthrough sparked the passion of a handful of courageous women in South Florida. They recognized that scientists, like Dr. Papanicolau, needed money to explore new ways to fight all types of cancer. The mission of the nonprofit organization they founded in 1952 remains unchanged eight decades later. Today, The Pap Corps Champions for Cancer Research has 51 chapters and 20,000 members across south Florida. Every research project supported by The Pap Corps adds to the knowledge and prevention of cancer. This year the challenges to our fundraising have caused us to find new ways to reach out to all of you. Cancer patients are depending on us to continue our fight against the devastating disease. The Addison Reserve Pap Corps Chapter has always been a leader in providing the much needed research funding! We must fulfill our mission! So let’s get to it!
