CHARLOTTESVILLE, VIRGINIA – November 28, 2023 – The Alliance to Cure Cavernous Malformation (“Alliance to Cure”) received a $25,000 grant as part of Kohl’s National Giveback Initiative, announced Kohl’s Cares today. The grant will support Alliance to Cure’s Breaking Barriers for Black Health Empowerment program (“Breaking Barriers”).

“Kohl’s Cares’ generous grant supports our work to inform, support and mobilize those affected by cavernous malformation (CCM) and to drive research for a cure,” Alliance to Cure CEO Connie Lee said. “Black CCM patients are underrepresented in most clinical trials, but the Kohl’s Cares’ grant will help us continue to connect more Black CCM patients to research opportunities.”
