Marcie and Ellen Foundation

Marcie and Ellen Foundation

The Marcie and Ellen Foundation, in memory of Marcie Westermeyer and Ellen Ervin, donates all of its proceeds from an annual benefit dinner to support the research of the Kimmel Cancer Center Breast Cancer Program. Currently in its fifth year, the foundation is supporting the liquid biopsy research of Ben Park, M.D., Ph.D.

Liquid biopsy uses tumor plasma DNA to measure microscopic breast cancer cells remaining after surgery and other therapies to distinguish patients who are cured, and could avoid additional treatment, from those who still have tumor cells remaining and will need more therapy.
