The official launch of a calendar to raise funds for breast and ovarian cancer research at Memorial University will be held Wednesday, Sept. 7, at 2:30 p.m. in the Terry Fox Laboratories on the third floor of Memorial University’s Faculty of Medicine in the Health Sciences Centre.

Titled Life. Plain. Simple, this elegant and sophisticated 16-month 2005-06 calendar depicts the charm of everyday life. All of the proceeds will be used to support research at Memorial University through the establishment of endowed research awards for faculty and graduate students in breast and ovarian cancer research.

Speakers at the calendar launch include the dean of Medicine, Dr. James Rourke, cancer researchers and graduate students.

This calendar is in memory of Dr. Des Robb, professor and chair of the Discipline of Laboratory Medicine at the Faculty of Medicine. He passed away Dec. 11, 2004, in Bonn, Germany, during a major operation.
