About Us

we raise money for cancer research

The Pap Corps is a volunteer charity organization that raises money for Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Miami. The seed money is used for breakthrough research on the causes and effective treatment for all types of cancer.

The Pap Corps name comes from George Papanicolaou who invented the Pap Smear, the diagnostic tool used to detect cervical cancer.  He was the former director of the then- Dade County Cancer Institute which merged with UM's original Comprehensive Cancer Center in 1984.

When joining the Greater Broward Chapter, you can join for the low annual membership which begins in January and ends in December for $40.00 or just $300.00 for a lifetime membership.
