A Night of Hope
On behalf of Cancer Fighters of Houston Inc., we are writing to request your valued financial support of the 2019 A Night of Hope annual gala to be held on April 27, 2019 at the BraeBurn Country Club in Houston, Texas.
Helping one person with a single act of kindness may not change the whole world, but it could change the world for one person. Your donation, no matter the amount, will make a difference.
Intended Use of Funds:
When you give to Cancer Fighters of Houston, you have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of cancer patients by helping to raise funds for innovative cancer research and clinical services that support all types of cancer. Cancer research is an important mission for us because it affects so many people, families and friends. Our continuum of care addresses all ages and focuses on prevention, treatment and recovery.
Here are examples of what your donation can do:
$175 Supports ongoing colonoscopy education and prevention awareness programs.
$500 Contributes to research introducing the latest immunotherapy techniques and benefits patients right here in the Houston community.
$1500 Enables future studies for more clinical evaluations for specified cancers, and acquisition of advanced technology.
Cancer Fighters of Houston is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization. Your donation is tax deductible and 100 percent of your donation directly supports cancer research for the Houston medical community.
Donations can be sent by check or online via credit card or PayPal:

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
