January 2014

Steve Weitman and Pam Burdick
Steve Weitman, M.D., Ph.D., director of the Institute for Drug Development at the CTRC, congratulates Pam Burdick, president of the Cancer Center Council, on her award for exemplary service to the CTRC. Saks Fifth Avenue presents three awards each year at its Key to the Cure event to deserving CTRC volunteers or staff members.
For the fifth consecutive year, Saks Fifth Avenue San Antonio selected the Cancer Therapy & Research Center (CTRC) at the UT Health Science Center as the beneficiary of its Key to the Cure charity shopping weekend in October.

Saks donated a percentage of its store sales during the four days of shopping and 100 percent of the net proceeds from the sale of the 2013 Key to the Cure limited-edition T-shirt designed by Emilio Pucci.

Over the past four years, Saks has donated more than $70,000 to the CTRC to support breast cancer research and treatment. This year’s event was celebrated with a luncheon chaired by CTRC Board members Nancy Torgerson and Mertie Wood.

Saks presented three Key to the Cure awards in recognition of exemplary service. Award recipients were Pam Burdick, president of the Cancer Center Council; Lupita Martinez, LMSW, M.B.A., OSW-C, CTRC’s social worker; and Jessica McCray, RN, breast cancer survivor and neuro-oncology nurse at the CTRC.
