TAKE A BITE OUT OF AYA CANCER – WE DID IT!!

Hello Friends,

I wish to report that last week’s fundraiser was a HUGH success. We raised over $27,000!!!

The evening was filled with warm wishes, fun, great food and music. We had an excellent presentation by our Key Note Speaker Robert Pugert (AYA Cancer Warrior and future Pediatric Oncologist). Robert touched our hearts with words of wisdom on the love and support of family,  the value of solid cancer research and hope for a future where cancer is but a thing of the past!!! Imagine..a world without cancer!

AND ABOUT THE BE CALM STAY STRONG YA Cancer Packages—

Description of the YA Cancer Patient Packages: 

The treatment itches, it burns, it makes you exhausted and sick, and because it’s so expensive, many young patients can’t afford the simple things that make it bearable. When you support the BE CALM STAY STRONG program, by sponsoring a cancer care basket for a young cancer patient in need, you are making an immediate impact in the life of a cancer patient. When you sponsor a BE CALM STAY STRONG basket, we work with hospitals and social workers that support cancer patients to ensure that it gets to someone who needs it, right when they need it the most. A personal note is included in the basket. All proceeds from your sponsorship are used to support the BE CALM STAY STRONG program – it’s a purchase with a purpose. FOR MORE INFORMATION CONTACT INFO@FIGHTCONQUERCURE.COM.
