The Bernice E. Holland Fund was established in June 2007 at TGen. The Fund is supported by the Bernice E. Holland Foundation located in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The Foundation was established in 1999 in memory of Bernice E. Holland who died at age 85 from colon cancer. At the time Bernice was diagnosed, she was full of life and still interested in dancing, painting and doing volunteer work. Her son, Rick Holland founded the Foundation in Bernice's memory to support colon cancer research.

Colon cancer is the fourth most common cancer in men and women in the United States and it affects all racial and ethnic groups. More than 90 percent of people with this disease are diagnosed after age 50. With a better understanding of the molecular mechanisms that cause cell growth in colon cancer, TGen's Dr. Galen Hostetter is working to identify novel targets for therapeutic intervention of colon cancers.

The mission of the Bernice E. Holland Foundation is to help find a cure for colon cancer. Each year the Bernice E. Holland Foundation hosts a range of events, including a VIP reception and golf tournament to promote awareness and raise funds for this important research.
