Funding education or research of cancers which affect women.


Marian Aldred was one of the original committee members of Think Pink Lux, founded in 2009. Sadly, on December 31, 2011, Marian died after having lived for 8 years with ovarian cancer. In her memory, the ThinkPinkLux team committed to supporting research through a grant called The Marian Aldred Award.

Marian Aldred, December 5, 1956 – December 31, 2011


The Marian Aldred award was instigated in 2012 following the untimely death due to ovarian cancer, of one of the committee’s founding members, Marian Aldred. The Marian Aldred Award has been designed to fund education or research into cancers which affect women and/or to provide support to women and their families whose lives have been touched by cancer.

The Marian Aldred Award is a grant that currently supports young researchers working on a project at the Luxembourg Institute of Health aimed at blocking breast cancer cell invasion and metastasis.
