Dr. Robert Millikan, Barbara Sorenson Hulka Distinguished Professor of Cancer Epidemiology, died Sunday, October 7. He was 55. A member of the epidemiology faculty at University of North Carolina Gillings School of Global Public Health and of UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center since 1993, Bob's research in cancer epidemiology sought to understand and provide better treatment for breast cancer, particularly for young African-American women. The Carolina Breast Cancer Study, which Bob directed for more than fifteen years, demonstrated that black women under the age of 45 are more likely to be diagnosed with aggressive types of breast cancer than are women of European ancestry. All of his research work included significant involvement of breast cancer advocates.

In 1994, Bob responded immediately to a call by the then recently formed National Breast Cancer Coalition to help create a curriculum for a radical new idea - Project LEADŽ - a program to teach breast cancer advocates the language and concepts of science, the basics of epidemiology and research design and the politics of breast cancer advocacy. Bob believed so completely in this experiment that he urged his mother, Flavia, a breast cancer survivor, to attend one of the first courses. He stayed with NBCC and Project LEADŽ throughout the ensuing 17 years, teaching, revising the curriculum, mentoring students, being a valued colleague to faculty and NBCC staff. His teaching skills were legion, making epidemiology compelling and relevant. Under Bob's gentle urging, students with no statistics backgrounds successfully calculated relative risk values. And he was fearless, being the one epidemiology teacher who could teach the Screening lecture without trepidation! He leaves a large cadre of devoted students and faculty whose education and lives he has enriched.

Thank you for supporting the National Breast Cancer Coalition Fund with your generous gift in memory of Dr. Robert Millikan, who helped establish Project LEADŽ and who was among its most gifted, dedicated and influential teachers. Your gift will allow us to continue teaching advocates the skills to identify what is worth fighting for in breast cancer and the tools to create meaningful change.

The main reason for this is that many dealerships are anticipating All New models landing throughout the year. Cheap Used Cars Online can be easily found as you just have to do a bit of homework by searching it online. These companies figure out also if they will be using the donated auto for charitable features or grant the car to a human currently being or household members in need to have.
