The Genevieve Costello Breast Cancer Research Fund
In partnership with the UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Genevieve Costello Breast Cancer Research Fund was established in February 2014.

The UC Davis Breast Cancer Program provides comprehensive, multidisciplinary care for patients with all stages of breast cancer. Patients receive all of their care in one location, from a team of top academic physicians.

About Genevieve Costello:  Genevieve Costello, a former point guard and leader on the UC Davis women's basketball team (2005-2009), was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer in April 2013.
While Genevieve put up a fight, she didn't have a chance against this aggressive disease and sadly passed away less than a month after she was diagnosed at the age of 26.

Genevieve became a key member of the UC Davis basketball team
in 2005, helping the Aggies transition to Division I status. Genevieve played a part in the Aggies’ making the 2008 Big West Tournament Championship where they advanced to the Women's National Invitational Tournament in UC Davis’ first year as Division 1. Teammates and fans will forever remember her competitive spirit, fun-loving nature and fearless play.

Prior to UC Davis, Genevieve grew up in San Diego County. She led Mount Miguel High School to four straight CIF championships. She is survived by her parents, Paul and Myrna Costello, and four older sisters, Minerva, Jennifer, Maria and Rose.
