Senator Singer to be Honored with “Legislative Champion Award” by the New Jersey Commission on Cancer Research

New Jersey state Senator Robert Singer will be honored with the “Legislative Champion Award” by the New Jersey Commission on Cancer Research (NJCCR) on Wednesday, November 15.

“It is a privilege to be recognized by the commission for my legislative efforts to ensure the proper funding of cancer research in New Jersey,” Singer (R-Lakewood), said in a statement.

“It is my hope that the additional funding and support will allow researchers to investigate new cancer treatments and new ways of preventing this insidious disease that has affected the lives of millions of people.”

Singer has sponsored legislation that would provide $10 million to the New Jersey Cancer Research Fund—with $5 million to fund general cancer research and $5 million to fund pediatric cancer research.

Singer will receive the award during NJCCR’s 7th Annual Research Symposium in Hamilton.

During the symposium, recipients of prior NJCCR grant awards are scheduled to present their scientific findings, demonstrating the impact of properly funded research.

“With additional research funding, we can improve treatments and survival rates to ensure that people with cancer have an opportunity to live full lives,” added Singer.
