According to The Children’s Cancer Fund Gala Co-Chair Lisa Cooley,
“My wish would be that no parent ever again has to lose a child to cancer. While this wish may not come true this year, it will happen; thanks in large part to Children’s Cancer Fund.
“Thirty years ago, half of all children diagnosed with cancer would not survive. Today, the survival rate is up to 80%! As you can see, we have made wonderful progress in the fight against this horrible disease, but cancer is still the #1 disease killer of children in the U.S.
“My wish for this year is that all tables be sold-out at our annual CCF Gala!! We are working hard on a record breaking year, and if we are able to sell all of our tables, it will go a long way in helping us reach our goal. The monies raised will be used for continued research with our partners UT Southwestern and Children’s Health. We also support the children and their families when faced with the heartbreaking reality that is children’s cancer.
“Won’t you search your heart and help these children? Please go to The Children’s Cancer Fund Gala and purchase a table or sponsorship. Our Gala will be held on Friday, April 22, at the Hilton Anatole beginning at 6:00. There will be the children’s fashion show, live and silent auction, dinner and dancing to the sounds of Emerald City. You will have a wonderful, fun-filled evening, while at the same time, doing a wonderful thing for our children battling this dreaded disease.
“We can’t do it by ourselves, but with your help, we can reach our goal, and help the precious kids and their families who deal with cancer on a daily basis.”
