From The President:
Dear Cancer Fighters,
2018 is well underway and we are busily enacting and proposing plans to support the mission of Cancer Fighters of Houston, Inc.(CFOH) We are pleased that our membership has continued to increase. Clearly many people resonate with our three prong focus supporting Service, Research and Education.
Many new technology advances are making their way into our organization with our website, links, electronic check-in at our events, giving programs through Randalls (#12607 at the register) and Amazon Smile (designate Cancer Fighters). More will be in the works such as Kroger, HEB, Whole Foods and FlipGive. Our goal is more communication with our membership, maintaining better records from sponsored events and connect with new donation sources.
I am delighted to lead a group of very committed, dedicated and compassionate women. Certainly the wisdom to form this organization in 1980 is visionary. I wanted to share our giving report for Research and Service that we have received from Baylor College of Medicine, MD Anderson, Methodist Research Institute and The Rose.
We hope this donation report will inspire present and future giving as CFOH has been a very responsible steward of all funds given to the organization. We look forward to seeing everyone at CFOH Events in 2018. Please bring a friend and help us share our mission of success in Houston philanthropy.
Please plan to attend our Spring Gala on Friday, May 11, at The Forest Club off Memorial Dr, from 7-11pm. Save that date!!!
Respectfully and thankfully submitted,
Denise M. Fredette MS, PT, MT, CSTS, NCTMB
