Donald McEachinCongressman A. Donald McEachin (VA-04) announced another cancer research grant award of $398,989 from the National Cancer Institute for VCU.

“This is the second significant grant awarded to VCU for cancer research this month. The two grants combined total almost a million dollars for this critical cause that impacts millions,” said Congressman Donald McEachin. “According to the National Cancer Institute, an estimated 609,640 people would die from cancer in 2018 alone.
