As Suz Would Say...
In case you've forgotten, Indianapolis means the Hope and Empowerment Event, hosted by the Henry Tucker Foundation on March 19th and 20th. On Friday night, March 19th, we will be treated to a screening of the movie, "Letters To God," and the movie's writer and co-director, Patrick Doughtie, will be our keynote speaker on Saturday, the 20th.
I will speak in breakout sessions; also speaking in these smaller sessions will be Henry Allen (father of Cameron & founder of the Brain Candy Project), Heide Randall (mother of Jessica) & Diane Killian (co-founders of Team Unite), Bob Piniewski (father of A.J. and founder of PAC2 [People Against Childhood Cancer]), Dr. Bassem Razzouk (Medical Director of St. Vincent Children's Hospital's Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases) and other people who are active in working to improve the lives of cancer patients and their families. If you live in the area, or know someone who does, please tell them about it. It's a free event, and 250 tickets are already gone!
As Michelle Tucker (mother of Henry) says, awareness = funding = research = CURE!
