Hunt for Hope-Friendswood, Texas

posted Sep 11, 2012, 6:49 AM by Fort Bend Exchange   [ updated Sep 11, 2012, 6:50 AM ]

Hobby Area Exchange Club has a team ready. How many other clubs are joining us? Doing Good and Having Fun!

Sunday, September 16, 2012 from 1:00-4:00 PM

Join us for an old fashioned scavenger hunt, have fun and raise funding for cancer research!

What is Hunt for Hope?

Hunt for Hope is an old fashioned scavenger hunt! Hunters will be given a list of items, some to find, some to snap a photo. All funding raised from Hunt for Hope will underwrite IBC research.

How do I join in the fun?
Sign up! Online at mention TEXAS. The suggested $25 donation (or more if you wish) includes you in the activities for the afternoon.

What is IBC?

Inflammatory breast cancer is a rare but most fatal form of breast cancer. While it accounts for 2-6% of all breast cancers, the 5-year overall survival rate is 40%, as compared to near 90% for all types of breast cancer combined. Since IBC, inflammatory breast cancer, can not be detected until a stage III, so we need more research for this more aggressive breast cancer.

We have hopes to fund some major IBC research projects. One in Philadelphia, PA. under the direction of Dr. Cristofanilli and possibly two projects in Houston, TX under the direction of Dr. Ueno and Dr. Wendy Woodward. Your $$ will directly support IBC research. Please share, please plan to attend, and ask friends and family to share and attend. We can only fund if you help. Thank you for allowing us, no, enabling us to fight IBC. Terry Arnold
