Edeltraut Blickle, an entrepreneur who died in 1992, has allocated a substantial sum of her fortune in the service of health promotion. Shortly before her death she set up a foundation to use her revenues to support general nursing care, as well as medical research institutes. The Edeltraut Blickle-Foundation has donated 40,000 EUR to the German Cancer Research Center this year. The executive board and colleagues offer their heartfelt thanks for this generous contribution.

Just like last year Doris Pütz baked Christmas cookies for a good cause. Friends and colleagues could purchase the cookies packed in little boxes, deciding for themselves what amount they would like to contribute. One colleague created a delicious Praline that was added to the box. A total sum of 600 EUR was put together within the framework of the fundraising campaign. The German Cancer Research Center expresses its heartfelt thanks to all of the people who donated and came up with such a wonderful idea in support of cancer research.

As every year, the question has been asked at mdx AG, to what extent Christmas gifts should be sent to customers. On this occasion Dennis Paul, head of m2m communication, seized the initiative. He suggested a donation to benefit cancer research instead, to "achieve something really useful". The company, located in Hamburg, subsequently transferred 3.000 EUR to the German Cancer Research Center. We would like to express our heartfelt thanks for the initiative and the generous donation.

Student collects Donations with her final Paper

Janina Kummerfeldt had a particularly creative idea. She was confronted with the challenge to win over participants for an inquiry within the framework of her final paper on the unusual topic: “Hygiene standards and consumer research”. In order to get as many participants as possible, she promised that every filled out questionnaire would contribute 10 cents to the German Cancer Research Center. She provided the link to the questionnaire on Facebook – with great success. In just six hours over one thousand people participated! At that point, some citizens of her hometown Stelle took the opportunity to collect money for cancer research extending Janina’s project. The money collected will go to benefit child brain tumor research.
Many thanks for the wonderful idea in support of our work!

To join the celebration, the guests could purchase tickets in advance or at the door. All the proceeds of the evening went to benefit cancer research. Altogether 1,129.30 EUR were raised and generously donated to the German Cancer Research Center.

Our many thanks to the organizers, their guests, sponsors, musicians and all those who donated, for their commitment in support of cancer research.

Bicycling from England to Germany: Brothers Russell and Phil took on the entire 800 km. One reason was also four-year-old Milla who was diagnosed with a brain tumor a year before.  To support Milla and her family the two undertook a weeklong bicycle journey. During their tour they collected donations for cancer research. The German Cancer Research Center expresses its heartfelt thanks for this impressive dedication! The money will go to benefit child brain tumor research.

The two bicyclists can be seen in the adjacent photo. The bear in the middle was their “traveling companion” and a gift for Milla from England.
